Kym Marsh and Simon Gregson would like to see their character's Michelle Connor and Steve McDonald get married in the future
'Coronation Street's Kym Marsh wants her character Michelle Connor to marry Steve McDonald.
The 37-year-old actress, who has played the barmaid since 2006, initially ruled out her alter-ego settling down with the cabbie (Simon Gregson), but she's now in favour of the idea because she wants them to have a life-long romance.
She said: "I always said I didn't want her to settle down, but now I would love to see her and Steve get married.
"I think it makes sense and it would be nice if they could have some longevity, rather than being one of those soap couples that splits up."
Simon, who has played the dopey pub owner since 1989, would also like to see Steve and Michelle tie the knot, but he'd rather they skip the wedding scenes because they always go on for too long and are "dead boring".
He explained to TV Times magazine: "I think Steve and Michelle being married would be good, and if they could be married without us having to film any wedding scenes, that would be even better.
"They usually last two weeks and they are dead boring. Perhaps they could get married off screen ... or abroad! I think they should get married in the Caribbean, we could do a spin-off."
