Coronation Street's Steve McDonald is to file for divorce from wife Becky.
The cab firm owner (Simon Gregson) has been growing increasingly frustrated with his spouse's crazy behaviour over recent months and decides enough is enough when he discovers Becky (Katherine Kelly) has slept with one of her ex-boyfriends, Noodle, during a booze bender.
Becky - who steals Steve's credit card and moves from hotel to hotel drowning her sorrows after nephew Max is taken into care when social services discover she bought him for £20,000 from her sister - tells a devastated Steve, "I had a different bloke every night and Noodle was twice the man you'll ever be", leaving him to tell her their marriage is over.
A show source added: "Steve just can't handle it any more. Becky's behaviour has pushed him over the edge."
As she struggles to cope with the breakdown of her marriage, Becky turns to Noodle (Christopher Brett) for support, but things soon turn nasty between the pair when he pokes fun at her closest friends Hayley and Roy Cropper.
She tells him: "Don't you ever ever have a go at them. They're the nicest people I've ever known."
