Michelle Connor and Liz McDonald will clash over Steve McDonald's care in 'Coronation Street'.
The Rovers Return landlady, played by actress Kym Marsh, is set to row with barmaid Liz (Beverley Callard) over how best to treat Steve (Simon Gregson) - who is Michelle's boyfriend and Liz's son - following his revelation he's suffering from clinical depression.
Kym explained: "They both obviously want to help Steve, but because both of them are so worried about him and love him so much, they both want to help him in their own way.
"Understandably, they clash as they're both so concerned about him and want to help him. They both have different approaches with Steve - Liz is more of the tough love approach and tries to get Steve up and doing things, whereas Michelle is much more trying the softly softly approach."
Michelle and Steve split briefly before the devastating mini-bus crash last week as she thought he'd fallen out of love with her because of his strange behaviour prior to him confessing he has depression but Kym thinks their relationship could now become stronger than ever.
She told Radio Times magazine: "Michelle is under no illusions as to how long the road is ahead of them, but she'd do everything in her power to help him and she'd stand by him through thick and thin. She's glad that he's let her in and she's going to be with him every step of the way ... Steve and Michelle are meant to be together and I think they will find happiness again."
