Will Ken fall for Wendy Crozier all over again?

Coronation Street's Roberta Kerr reveals to Soaplife how Wendy Crozier reappears in Ken's life - more than 20 years after she caused his divorce from Deirdre. Could she come between Ken and Deirdre again? So how does Wendy come face to face with Ken after all these years? "Wendy's Vice Chair of the Bessie Street School Governors and Headteacher Brian Packham has asked Ken to be on the governing body which is unbeknown to Wendy. She rushes into the meeting late and she's shocked to see that he's there. Then it gets worse... She had assumed that she would automatically replace the Chair [who has died], but Brian wants Ken in that position." How does she feel about seeing Ken after more than 20 years? "Her initial reaction is shock; she's been married for the past 15 years and is now widowed. But she's busy in her life, she's not looking and she's certainly not predatory. It's a complete bolt from the blue." And then Ken wins the vote for Governor... "They have to give a bit of a speech each then there's a vote and the vote goes in Ken's favour - which is a bit galling for her, to say the least!" Ken's worried about them working together. What about Wendy? "She sleeps on it - and so does Ken. Wendy's invited to a meeting with Brian because Ken's said he doesn't want the role. Brian's trying to persuade Ken to accept and wants Wendy onside. That's when Wendy suggests they go for a drink and talk about it. Ken's worried, but for Wendy it's just two work colleagues having a drink." How would Deirdre see it, though? "I think she'd feel insecure and angry. Undoubtedly she'd think the worst, even if there is nothing going on Deirdre will assume there is, especially because Ken doesn't mention he has met up with Wendy again." Could their romance be rekindled? "Yes, it could, but at the moment it just feels like they're testing each other out. Wendy's reappearance has certainly opened up a hornet's nest, though!"
