Kate Ford, who plays the no-nonsense florist, has revealed her character fears the worst when she accuses her pal Abi Franklin (Sally Carman) of sleeping with her husband-to-be Steve McDonald on the morning of her big day, after she told him he had a "free pass", meaning for a spa treatment rather than to play away.

She said: "Steve goes missing on the wedding morning and she starts to think about the free pass again, she puts two and two together makes five and decides he's used the free pass on Abi.

"She has a massive meltdown, a huge row with Abi and then she goes to the garage and sabotages Michelle's car, which Abi has been working on, in the hope Abi will get into trouble. She's not thinking straight."

As well as plenty of drama between Steve and Tracy, there are always comical scenes aplenty between the characters, and Kate loves playing out the humour in their relationship the most.

She added: "I'm really enjoying Steve and Tracy being back together and playing the humour in their relationship, we have such a laugh together, that's where I'm happiest playing the comedy stuff with Simon.

"I've also had some great scenes with Bev [Callard, Liz McDonald] recently and it's always nice being back in the Barlow house."

But Kate has hinted Tracy and her adoptive half-brother Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard) could come to blows in scenes to come, after he decides to have an impromptu wedding to Sinead Tinker (Katie McGlynn) on the same day as her marriage.

She added: "It's not a great thing to do and I think on some level he's enjoying it.

"There's still a lot of tension between Tracy and Daniel, there's more to play there, there's some real hatred there after what happened with Ken, yet he still seems to be the golden child and Tracy resents that."
