Inside Soap says that Eileen (Sue Cleaver) is due to clash with a "fiery" new character called Lesley, who appears on our screens in October.
No further details of the character are known just yet, but Lesley will be played by actress Judy Holt, who is best known for her role as Elaine Fishwick in At Home With The Braithwaites.
Holt recently appeared in Hollyoaks, playing the judge in Gilly Roach's rape trial. She also has a previous Coronation Street credit for a small role back in 1991.
We already know that there's love on the horizon for Eileen in October as she is wooed by firefighter Paul (Tony Hirst). Could Lesley play a role in this storyline, or will it be a different plot altogether?
