Kym, who has played Michelle Connor on the cobbles since 2006, told The Sun Online at last week's Military Awards: "He is due to go back to Afghanistan next year for six months. It is tough, but I know we can make it work and we will be fine.

"He's just got back from a training exercise in Kenya, so tonight was the first time we have seen each other in weeks.

"It feels very special to us to be here together – and now he's back for Christmas, it's a lovely feeling."
