Coronation Street star Kate Ford has predicted that it won't take long for her twisted character Tracy Barlow to make a new enemy in Weatherfield.

Tracy's long-term nemesis Becky McDonald (Katherine Kelly) leaves the cobbles in tonight's double bill of the soap - but not before wrecking the schemer's wedding day by exposing the lies she has told about her miscarriage.

Speaking to the Daily Record, Ford explained that Becky's exit could pave the way for a new feud to develop on the show.

She commented: "Tracy can find a new enemy. She's always got someone to spar with. She goes from one person to another. I don't think it will be long before she has a problem with somebody else."

Recent tabloid reports have suggested that Tracy will soon find herself embroiled in a petty dispute with Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) when she refuses to leave the family home he bought for them in happier times.

Ford confirmed: "There is a good bit of comedy, quite a bit of lighter stuff coming up as well, which is fun to film. I enjoy that. As an actress, you just play it straight, really, and the writing does it all.

"You'd be surprised how little we know, though. We don't get our scripts that much in advance and we know a bit about what's going to happen, but we don't know everything.

"You do kind of play it as it comes along. It's easier than a play where you get the beginning, the middle and the end because it is continuing drama and you don't know what is going to happen. It is almost like life."

Coronation Street airs Tracy and Steve's explosive wedding episodes tonight at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV1.
