Tracy came back to the cobbles in an explosive Christmas storyline and has caused havoc between Steve (played by Simon Gregson) and his current wife Becky (portrayed by the departing Katherine Kelly).
Speaking to TV Times, Ford said that Tracy is feeling as if her meddling is starting to pay off.
"She thinks she can see a shift in Steve, and she knows that his and Becky's relationship is not on firm ground. She's excited because she thinks an opportunity might be presenting itself," Ford explained.
"All Tracy wants is for her, Amy and Steve to be a family. She sees that as the key to her fulfilment and happiness.
"She does love Amy and she's really worried about her mystery illness. When it comes down to it, she will put Amy above anything."
Recently, Ford warned that Tracy's scheming is set to continue, as it becomes apparent that Amy has been exploiting her illness to bring Steve and Tracy together.
