Corrie spoilers: Inside Will Mellor’s marriage as Cobbles star preps for Strictly; plus Emmerdale & EastEnders news

WILL Mellor was announced as the first contestant of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing on Thursday, and now The Sun can take a look into his exciting home life.

Will, 46, has been married to his wife Michelle McSween for 15 years.

The pair met in the late-90s and have been going strong ever since.

The former Corrie star married his wife in 2007 and have since had two kids, Jayden, 18, and Renee, 14.

During a chat with OK! last year, the pair revealed how they keep their marriage alive – and it’s very cheeky.

“Sex in the afternoon!”, Will confessed, as Michelle added: “Wa-hey!”

He added: “We just make time for each other. We hate routine – it kills the romance – so it’s important for us to step out of that when we can.”

Following the announcement that he would be joining Strictly bookies already see him as an early favourite.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It’s early days but as things stand Will Mellor is leading the way in the Strictly betting; he’s certainly one to watch as far as punters are concerned at this point.”

Mellor is an impressive 8/1 to win the show, beating his co star Kym Marsh (12/1).

  • ‘We have to protect our soaps’, claims star

    Viewing figures for Britain’s biggest weekly ­dramas are in freefall in the face of stiff competition from streaming services and social media.

    EastEnders lost 37 per cent of its viewers between 2017 and 2019, while Coronation Street suffered a 19 per cent fall and Emmerdale 22 per cent.

    In an effort to defend our soaps, Kevin Kennedy, who played Corrie’s Curly Watts for 20 years,  has explained why they are vital part of British culture.

    “SOAP operas are as British as Sunday lunch, football and pantomime.

    “We invented them and it is hard to imagine television without these regular slices of everyday life.

    “They highlight particular aspects of society that we might not feel comfortable discussing openly.

    “But if you are watching a soap and something happens to a character you care about, suddenly these issues become very real.”
