A group of Coronation Street's male characters are to hatch a secret plot to visit South Africa to watch England play at the World Cup, according to a report.

The new storyline begins when binman Trevor Dean (Steve Jackson) comes up with the idea and invites Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson), Ashley Peacock (Steven Arnold), Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) and Tyrone Dobbs (Alan Halsall) to join him on the trip, the Daily Star claims.

It is thought that the group decide not to tell their wives and girlfriends about the plan but resolve to each hand over £1,500 to fund the holiday.

However, Trevor's landlady Janice Battersby (Vicky Entwistle) is expected to later find a stash of cash hidden under his bed, forcing him to come clean about the plot and beg her to keep quiet.

Dismissing the suggestion, Janice apparently replies: "You expect me to keep this a secret from our Leanne when her recovering alcoholic fiancé is about to wazz a grand-and-a-half up the wall just so he can go and watch the World Cup with a load of other drunken morons?"

The schemers' partners are then expected to get wind of the plan and force them to scrap the idea. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
