Ever since Andrea first appeared on our Coronation Street screens, we knew there was more on her agenda than coursework.
Right from the start the new college buddy of Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) showed all the signs of a woman on a mission, and it didn’t take long to work out that Andrea’s mission was in fact Steve!
Now, having settled into Weatherfield life Andrea (Hayley Tamaddon) has managed, eventually, to convince all those around her that she is not after the Rovers’ landlord, having settled into a convenient relationship with his best friend Lloyd (Craig Charles), but now Hayley Tamaddon, the actress who plays her, has revealed that she hopes her character ends up having an affair with the real objects of her desires.
The former Emmerdale actress and Dancing On Ice champion has admitted she’s hoping for an affair to take place, and that Andrea and Michelle (Steve’s current girlfriend played by Kym Marsh) will end up coming to blows over the hapless joker!
Discussing the prospect in a recent interview with the Daily Star, Tamaddon revealed:
“Everybody keeps asking me when Andrea and Steve will finally get together.
“It happens all the time. They’re practically begging me. I get tweets all the time saying ‘Please say you’ll get with Steve’.
The actress, who played Delilah Dingle in Emmerdale, went on to hint that the fans may not be disappointed, teasing:
“It would be boring if everyone was happy all the time. Everybody watching wants a bit of drama.”
Tamaddon, who won the fifth series of Dancing On Ice and came runner up in last year’s All-Star final series, both with best friend Daniel Whiston as her professional skating partner, has just signed a new contract with Coronation Street – So watch out Michelle!
Coronation Street continues tonight at 7.30pm on ITV1 / ITV1 HD – Watch a clip of Hayley in Dancing On Ice action in the clip below:
