Michelle Connor is set to ''lose it'' and accidentally punch her 'Coronation Street' pal Becky McDonald in an upcoming episode in the soap

'Coronation Street' barmaid Michelle Connor "loses it" and accidentally punches Becky McDonald.

The feisty brunette - played by Kym Marsh - is furious when newcomer Kylie (Paula Lane) flirts with Ciaran McCarthy (Keith Duffy) and lashes out - but hits the wrong person.

Kym revealed: "My character Michelle has some competition for the attention of Ciaran this week. Becky's half-sister Kylie, who's played by Paula Lane, arrives on the Street and sets her sights on him. Although Michelle doesn't see her as a threat, she's irritated that Kylie's flirting with her man. So when Kylie asks Ciaran outright if he and Michelle are an item, she loses it and goes to punch her in the face - but misses and ends up hitting Becky."

Kym has also dismissed speculation that new show producer Phil Collinson is to employ security experts to prevent scripts being made public.

She told new! magazine: "I think reports that Phil Collinson has brought in a team of experts to check for bugging devices on set, that scripts are being kept under lock and key and that the cast are subject to spot-checks are a slight exaggeration!

"I can't imagine that Phil's going to be waiting at the door ready to strip-search us! Having said that, I do know it's very important to him that the 50th anniversary storyline is kept secret."
