Michael Le Vell has opened up about his upcoming ‘Coronation Street’ comeback, ahead of his character Kevin Webster’s return to the cobbles later this week.

Over the weekend, Michael reportedly celebrated six months of being sober following his participation in a rehab programme, according to the Sunday People.

A friend of the actor reportedly told the paper that Michael’s new relationship was key in his happiness.

“Michael has had a very difficult couple of years but Louise was the best thing that happened to him,” the pal reportedly stated. “She's been an absolute rock and supported him every step of the way.

"They've come through so much together and are ready to start an exciting new time in their lives.”

At present, the residents of 'Coronation Street' are currently still reeling from the shock murder of Tina McIntyre.

Peter Barlow is currently under arrest on suspicion of murder, while the real killer is busy planning his wedding to Tracy.
