NOTHING can ever really be the same between Wendy Crozier and Ken Barlow.
Next week, however, the Coronation Street stalwart reconnects with his former flame in an unexpected way.
The social worker portrayed by Roberta Kerr came back to the cobbles to help Abi Franklin get custody of her son Alfie and bumped into her ex-lover.
But when Ken (played by Corrie legend William Roache) had a conversation with her, his stepdaughter Tracy didn't have anything nice to say due to their old affair which took place behind her mother Deirdre's back.
Nonetheless, Ken and Wendy were then able to share a meal together, but the reunion turned slightly sour.
Coming up, Ken is adamant on making things right when he spots Wendy in the local café.

Before Wendy returned, she was left under the impression that Ken wanted nothing to do with her.
This was due to their last encounter in 2012 after she'd tried to reignite their spark while Ken was still married to Deirdre.
Feeling betrayed by Wendy after she'd said they had slept together to try and break his marriage, Ken told her he never wanted to see her again, not even as a friend.

Wendy has been a long-standing familiar face for fans of the Manchester-based program as she was first introduced as Ken's mistress in 1989.
This first affair led to Ken and Deirdre's divorce before they rekindled their romance, years down the line.
Sadly for Wendy, this also means she has some very bad blood with Ken's family, more particularly Tracy.
