Coronation Street star Kym Marsh has admitted that she would be disappointed if her character's current romance ran smoothly.

The actress's alter ego Michelle Connor recently found love with barman Ciaran McCarthy after the Weatherfield duo had denied their feelings for months.

Discussing the storyline, Marsh is quoted by PA as saying: "It was a long process, but it was fun playing that 'will they, won't they' bit.

"I like playing the bit before the relationship, where they're chasing each other. When you get into a relationship things tend to be stale on screen. A soap couple doesn't tend to stay together long.

"We haven't had any obstacles yet but this is soapland, anything can happen. I'd like there to be some, definitely. It would be rubbish if we were just happy ever after. Michelle's best when she has things thrown at her."

Marsh recently said that fans have seen the "comical and sexy" side to Michelle in her recent scenes.
