Ken Barlow’s love life has been at a standstill for several months after a string of romances throughout his years in the ITV cobbles.

In 2015, Ken suffered from the ultimate heartbreak when his beloved wife Deirdre died off-screen and though he has gotten back on the horse, none of his recent relationships managed to evolve into something more serious.

But next week, the Corrie stalwart portrayed by William Roache could be getting another chance at love as he meets someone new.

It all begins when a jilted Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) moans to David Platt (Jack P. Shepherd) that his online dating profile hasn’t had much success.

Regular viewers of the Manchester-based program will recall that Steve was left heartbroken when his wife Tracy Barlow ended their marriage following her affair with Tommy Orpington.

Debbie Webster (Sue Devaney) suggests Steve should try the cocktail night at the Chariot Square if he wants to meet someone.

A bolstered Steve returns home, determined to not give up on romance as of yet, but once at No.1, he finds Ken trying on different jackets.

When Ken reveals that he’s going to join him for his evening at the Chariot Square, Steve does his best to appear pleased.

The pair head off to the Chariot Square, expecting a good evening but as Debbie approaches Ken and Steve with drinks, they are in for quite the shock.

Debbie points out an older lady in the corner named Elspeth and explains that she bought the drinks.

To top it all off, Debbie reveals that Elspeth has had her eye on Ken all evening, leaving Steve incredulous.

Will Ken give her a chance?

Former Absolutely Fabulous actress Helen Lederer is joining the Corrie cast as Elspeth, as announced in a post released on the soap’s official X page on March 17, 2024.

“Helen Lederer to guest star in Coronation Street”, the caption read.

“Silver Fox Ken Barlow will prove he still has what it takes to woo the ladies when he catches the eye of Elspeth, played by Helen!”

But could there be more to Elspeth than meets the eye?

Coronation Street airs every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8pm on ITV.
