Coronation Street fans are convinced a new romance is on the horizon for former lovers Ken Barlow and Wendy Papadopoulos.

The duo embarked on an affair back in the late 80s which led to his first divorce with his late wife Dierdre Barlow.

During Tuesday night's instalment of the ITV soap, viewers were left baffled after Nigel tried his luck at asking Wendy out, with several believing she still has underlying feelings for past flame.

Taking to social media, one fan wrote: "Come on Wendy put this poor guy out of his misery and tell him you’ve got the hots for Ken not him #Corrie."

"Wendy wants Ken #Corrie," speculated a second.

While a third added: "I thought Wendy would be more interested in Ken.."

Towards the end of the episode, a stunned Wendy approached Ken at his house to tell him that she had been asked out.

Informing Ken that she rejected the offer, she said: "Well I lightly told him that it wasn't appropriate while we were working on the play together."

She then questioned why he took it upon himself to encourage Nigel to ask her out, before asking: "And why are you suddenly avoiding me?"

"Ken, we were together for quite some time. I know when you're fibbing!," she added.

Ken then confessed that the reason behind his decision was actually because he still has feelings for Wendy.

But it seems viewers predictions may take a bit of time to come true as a stunned Wendy didn't know what to respond to her ex-lover.

"I know it's a lot to take in, two propositions in one day. Say something, don't just leave me hanging," Ken said.

Struggling to find her words, Wendy made a quit exit as she exclaimed: "I think I left my purse in the pub!," leaving Ken gutted.

One thing that is for certain, Ken's daughter Tracy Barlow will not react well if the pair eventually revert back to their old feelings.
