'Coronation Street's Tracy Barlow feels her meddling into Steve McDonald's marriage is starting to pay off.
The scheming ex-jailbird thinks she is making progress in her bid to drive a wedge between her former lover and his wife Becky (Katherine Kelly) in the hope he will return to her and their daughter, Amy, and be a family together.
Kate Ford - who plays Tracy - said: "She thinks she can see a shift in Steve, and she knows that his and Becky's relationship is not on firm ground. She's excited because she thinks an opportunity might be presenting itself.
"All Tracy wants is for her, Amy and Steve to be a family. She sees that as the key to her fulfilment and happiness."
Amy has recently been struck by a mystery illness in the show, and while Tracy uses it to her advantage to see more of Steve, she is genuinely concerned about her daughter.
She added to TV Times magazine: "She does love Amy and she's really worried about her mystery illness. When it comes down to it, she will put Amy above anything."
It has previously been announced Katherine Kelly will leave the soap early next year.
