Coronation Street actor Michael Le Vell has insisted that his character Kevin Webster’s upcoming affair with Molly Dobbs is ‘not just a fling’.

The mechanic and Tyrone’s new wife, played by Vicky Binns, are set to share a passionate kiss in a forthcoming episode – and it seems that won’t be the end of it.

“It’s not as just straightforward as a fling or a full blown affair,” said Michael.

He continued: “There’s a lot more twists to come yet.

“It goes a lot deeper than that and is a lot more involved obviously.

“I can’t go too far into it but there’s lots of little offshoots to this story now, which is very exciting.”

In Wednesday night’s episode, Molly detects an atmosphere between Kevin and Jason (Ryan Thomas) at the gym, and Kevin admits he accused Jason of fancying her.
