Gail Platt is set to marry boyfriend Michael Rodwell in a new 'Coronation Street' storyline
'Coronation Street' character Gail McIntyre is to marry for a sixth time in a new storyline.
The long-time Weatherfield resident - played by Helen Worth - will say "yes" when boyfriend Michael Rodwell (Les Dennis) gets down on one knee and pops the question as he realises she's the woman he wants to spend the rest of her life with.
However, with Gail's disastrous track record with husbands it is doubtful the scriptwriters will let her live happily ever after.
A source close to the show told the Daily Star newspaper: "She's had a cheater, a killer and now a thief with a severe heart condition. Something tells me Gail is doomed when it comes to marriage!"
Gail's first husband was mechanic Brian Tilsley - the father of her children Nick and Sarah-Louise - the couple divorced before remarrying, but she was eventually widowed when Brian was stabbed on the street in a tussle with some youths outside a nightclub.
Her second spouse was Martin Platt - the father of David - but they split after he had affairs. Third husband Richard Hillman was a murderer who tried to kill Gail and her children by driving them all into a river after his secret was discovered.
The man to walk Gail down for a fifth time was Joe McIntyre - the father of murdered barmaid Tina McIntyre - but he died after accidentally killing himself while trying to fake his own death in an insurance scam.
Gail is set for a big year in 2015 because as well as getting married she is going to be reunited with her daughter Sarah-Louise Platt, as Tina O'Brien is reprising her role after almost seven years away.
Speaking about the storyline, actress Helen previously said: "I'm absolutely delighted she's coming back. I can't wait to welcome her back."
