Coronation Street star Jane Danson has promised that there will be more "exciting" developments ahead for Leanne and Peter Barlow this year.

The couple are currently enjoying quieter times in Weatherfield following their explosive wedding blessing showdown, which led to them splitting temporarily before later deciding that they could not live without each other.

However, speaking in an interview with This Morning today, Danson hinted that the pair's relationship is likely to come back to the forefront of the soap in the summer.

The actress explained: "I've not received the scripts but I know what's in store in the coming months - in the summer months. It's very exciting and, of course, I can't say anything because it's more than my job's worth!"

Confirming that she was surprised by what the writers have in store, she continued: "I thought now that they're married they'll probably have a baby and do the expected thing. But I think I'm alright to say that it's not that. I would love to tell you [what it is]! Keep watching."

Danson also explained how the couple have managed to stay together despite Peter's alcohol problems and Leanne's recent affair.

She said: "They're both flawed characters. He's got a lot of demons, she's got a lot of demons and they both don't really think about things before they do anything, and that can cause problems further down the line.

"But they really understand each other and I think over the last couple of years the writers have been really invested in those two characters, so to see them apart for a while and [Leanne] having an affair, I was a bit like, 'Oh no, don't rock the boat!' But it gave us both opportunities to work with different characters and it gives scope for the future. But for the moment, they're very much together."
