Chemistry grows between the legendary former couple in the coming weeks, but Susan is reluctant to respond to Karl's advances.

She told TV Week: "Fletch and I have been championing the story for a long time.

"We were both very, very happy to learn there was a possibility they may get back together. I think the fans definitely want this, too.

"Going by what people tell me when I go to the shops, or when they write in, the first question is always, 'When do you two get back together?'

"That's lovely to hear, because that's what we've been asking writers for a long time as well."

Susan and Karl, who have been separated for just over a year, will soon share a moment of intimacy.

Woodburne added: "They have such a deep connection and a deep bond, and the affection between them has never gone away. They keep coming back to each other.

"Is it because it's familiar or easy, or is it more? I think Susan's been in denial for quite a while, and when she stops Karl, she just can't deal with what she's feeling at the time."
