Corrie's Steve gets caught in the middle

Corrie's Steve gets caught in the middle

The Rovers Return's hapless landlord Steve McDonald finds himself caught up in best friend Lloyd's relationship drama, after Andrea's estranged husband Neil mistakes him for the man she has fallen in love with.

Andrea's big secret was finally revealed to a clueless Lloyd last week, and he was left heartbroken when he found out Andrea was in fact married and he was essentially "the other man".

But with all involved still dealing with the fall out of the big revelation, it's poor Steve who gets caught in the firing line.

Actor Simon Gregson explained: "So basically Steve has got himself caught in the middle of someone else's relationship, yet again, through no want of his own.

"Neil starts following Andrea around and then sees Andrea with Steve. He puts two and two together and comes up with five.

"Then he starts getting in his car and being a bit weird...Steve is Lloyd for a while in Neil's eyes."

Steve digs himself an even bigger hole when crossed wires lead to a homeless Andrea believing she is welcome to stay at the Rovers.

"Andrea ends up staying at the Rovers and Lloyd doesn't have a clue about any of it," said Simon.

"So Steve's got Neil stalking him everywhere and of course Neil enters the pub, sees Andrea there and it all goes off.

"And once again it will all end up in a huge mess," he added. "So thanks to the Coronation Street writers for putting me in this situation once again!"

Coronation Street airs on UTV on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7.30pm.
