The pregnant widow, played by Samia Smith, has been battling with the factory boss since she realised he killed her husband Liam.

‘The writers held secret talks last week to discuss how to go about it – because they know it could come across as far-fetched,’ says the source.

‘But all the hints of a budding relationship will be put in place over the next months.’
