Corrie star Simon Gregson says Michelle Connor “isn’t as bonkers” as Steve’s other women!

Coronation Street resident Steve McDonald is of course about to rekindle his romance with Michelle Connor (Kym Marsh) but having done so, he has to set his ex-wife Tracy Barlow (Kate Ford) straight when she gets the wrong end of the stick and thinks Steve’s still in love with her.

And as fans of the show will know, when it comes to women, if it wasn’t for bad luck, Steve would have no luck at all, but in a glass-half-full sort of a statement, Simon Gregson – who of course plays Steve – has revealed that he has high hopes for Steve and Michelle’s romance, because she’s “not as bonkers” as his former partners have been!

During an interview which is on Corrie’s official website, Simon said, “I think Steve and Michelle make a good couple.

“She’s not as bonkers and she’s not as crazy as all the other girls there he’s been out with…

“They were great beforehand, just some very strange circumstances turned up to rock the relationship a little…

“They get together and everything’s fine and then Steve manages to mess it up again.

“As usual Barlow steps into the mix and everything goes Pete Tong. Tracy starts banging on that she’s not feeling very well and everybody thinks that she’s swinging the lead.

“It turns out that she isn’t very well and then Steve has to go and visit her in hospital and Steve says a load of stupid stuff because he thinks Tracy’s on her deathbed, so he thinks, ‘I’ll say a lot of stuff that she wants to hear because she’s going to pop her clogs’.

“She obviously goes and lives and then he’s got to deal with all that.

“I’ve absolutely no idea how Steve is going to talk his way out of this complete mess!

“He’s stuck again between two women.”

Well Si, I can think of worse places for Steve to be…
