Coronation Street's Tyrone Dobbs will get a new love interest in the coming weeks, it has been announced.

Show producer Phil Collinson told This Morning today that Tyrone (Alan Halsall) is to fall for a new character named Kirsty, who will arrive on screen later in the summer.

Tyrone was left heartbroken late last year when he discovered that wife Molly had cheated on him and that baby Jack was not his. After Molly died in the tram crash disaster, Tyrone learned that best friend Kevin Webster had been her secret lover.

However, Collinson said today: "A big storyline across the summer and into the autumn is Tyrone meeting somebody who's hopefully going to help him move on from Molly and everything that happened.

"A brand new character is going to come in - she's called Kirsty. I have to say, it's not all going to be a smooth ride for Tyrone - he's got a lot of baggage and he's got a lot that he's got to get over. It's a big story for him over the summer."

Collinson also confirmed that there is love on the horizon for Eileen Grimshaw (Sue Cleaver), as first revealed last weekend.

"Eileen's going to have a nice big romance with a fireman," he said. "But he's got a bit of a secret - it's the best tradition of soap! It's not going to be easy."

Coronation Street has been tipped to air a 'Summer of Love' over the coming weeks as a number of characters feature in romantic storylines.
