Coronation Street's warring ex-couple Sally and Kevin Webster will remain apart for the foreseeable future, producer Phil Collinson has confirmed.

The pair's marriage hit crisis point in December after Sally discovered Kevin's infidelity in the soap's 50th anniversary live episode. Since then, Sally has initiated divorce proceedings and found herself embroiled in several petty squabbles with Kevin.

Answering reader questions in this week's Inside Soap, Collinson was asked whether it could be possible for Sally and Kevin to follow in the footsteps of Ken and Deirdre Barlow by setting aside their differences and moving on from past troubles.

However, the soap's showrunner replied: "No, I don't think so. We'd be selling them short if we did that any time soon. Everything that's happened since Kevin's affair was exposed has been so monumental - we have to do it justice and show what happens when a marriage collapses.

"And, in fact, we're getting a lot of brilliant storyline material. I'm enjoying seeing the Websters apart and at war so much that it'd be a mistake to assume they'll get back together in the end."

The Websters' bickering will take a new twist later this week when Kevin wins a big cash prize on a scratch card.
