Former Coronation Street couple Kevin and Sally Webster may be brought back together after their daughter Sophie is hurt, actor Michael Le Vell has teased.

The estranged pair – played by Michael and Sally Dynevor – are reunited in hospital to comfort Sophie (Brooke Vincent), who suffers injuries to her spine after getting hit by a car next week.

“It might do. It’s the million dollar question that everyone asks me, are Kevin and Sally going to get back together?” he told Coronation Street’s official website.

“Viewers will just have to see what the future has in store. You never know, but Kevin and Sally have not been together for a very long time now, they both have moved on a lot with their separate lives.”

Sophie gets hit by a car after putting her life on the line to save Ryan Connor (played by Sol Heras), and doctors aren’t sure if she will recover the use of her legs in scenes to air from October 22.

“If that is the case and they face a future where Sophie cannot walk again, they will face it head on and deal with the situation as best they can as a family,” the actor continued.

“They will put on a united front. At this point they just don’t know what the future holds, it is too early to say,” added Michael.
