Coronation Street‘s Tyrone Dobbs is set to find love again this summer.

Producer Phil Collinson revealed on This Morning that the street’s widowed mechanic – who was left heartbroken when he learned his wife Molly had been having an affair with Kevin Webster and baby Jack was not his son – is helped to get over losing Molly in last year’s tram crash when he meets a new woman this summer.

Phil revealed: “The big story storyline across the summer and into the autumn is Tyrone meeting somebody who’s hopefully going to help him get over Molly and everything that’s happened, bless him.

“A new character is coming in called Kirsty. I have to say, it’s not all going to be a smooth ride for Tyrone, he’s got a lot of baggage and a lot that he’s got to get over. But it’s a big story for him over the summer.”

And Tyrone isn’t the only one who is going to find more romance on the street.

Phil revealed single mum Eileen Grimshaw is set for a fling with a hunky fireman.

He said: “Eileen is going to have a nice big romance with a fireman. But again he’s got a bit of a secret too, best tradition of soap that. It’s not going to be easy.

“Can she just find someone nice? Come on it’s soap, it’s Coronation Street!”
