Fans of the ITV soap will see the two characters enjoy a date on tonight’s (28 October) episode, following the death of Ken’s wife Deirdre - who was played by the late Anne Kirkbride - and it looks like romance could be on the cards.

While many may think it is too soon for Ken to be moving on from his late wife just three months after her death, one person who is a fan of the relationship is Sue’s husband Mark Eden.
“Mark thinks it’s good, he can see the potential,” Sue told The Mirror.
Speaking of her own thoughts on Ken and Audrey’s romance, she added that she “had some big shoes to fill”, given Ken and Deirdre's popularity as a couple.

“They are very different people," she admitted.
"So I was quite surprised when I was first told about what was going to happen, but nicely surprised. In fairness it depends what they are going to do and how it develops, it is nice that it is quite a slow burner and is coming from a mutual friendship."
Elsewhere on ‘Coronation Street’, Audrey’s grandchildren Sarah and David Platt are still trying to cover up Calum Logan’s murder, after they killed him during the soap’s recent live episode last month.
In the coming weeks, viewers will see Sarah discover she is pregnant with the bad boy’s child, leaving her with an agonising decision as to whether to keep the baby or not.
‘Coronation Street’ continues tonight (28 October) at 7.30pm on ITV.
