The eccentric pair, played by Katy Cavanagh and Peter Gunn, find a new shared interest in the coming weeks when they think they have seen strange objects overhead, according to the Daily Star.
It is thought that Julie and Brian soon spring into action and start keeping watch on the skies in the light-hearted plotline.
Brian apparently takes the lead in the new project, telling Julie that he is a "respected expert" in the field of UFO landings.
Meanwhile, Julie soon gets caught in the moment, grabbing Brian and admitting: "This UFO spotting business is really turning me on."
A Coronation Street source told the newspaper: "This could only happen to Julie."
Julie and Brian reunited on screen in the summer.
