Evelyn Plummer (played by Maureen Lipman) was just starting a new romance when the lockdown was announced, with old flame Arthur Medwin (Paul Copeland) after bumping into him at the vets earlier this year. However, as Evelyn and Arthur come to terms with using Zoom to communicate, it could be Audrey Roberts (Sue Nicholls) that comes along getting in the middle of Evelyn and her new love on Coronation Street.
Coronation Street fans love Evelyn for the sole reason that if she doesn’t like someone, she’ll tell them to their face.
Evelyn has always been outspoken and with her sharp tongue and wicked one-liners, fans were then delighted when Arthur arrived in Weatherfield.
Now though, fans are curious as to whether or not Arthur could be the one to melt Evelyn’s cold heart, once and for all.
ITV soap bosses put a halt to filming back in March when the lockdown for the coronavirus pandemic was announced, and they are only just getting back on their feet again but with strict guidelines in place.

Some of the older actors won’t be allowed on set for a good few months, but ITV bosses say they have found a way around it.
Express.co.uk recently spoke to Coronation Street bosses about how they are going to proceed and what is to come for actors like Maureen Lipman.
Corrie boss Iain MacLeod explained: “It’s not a one size fits all solution.
“In some cases, we’ll be telling a story that accounts for them being off-screen for the time being.
“However, all of this provided us with some opportunities to do some interesting stories as well.
“I mean, I think there’s probably a lot of interest in you know, we have considered having some of the older cast or maybe some of the medically vulnerable cast on Zoom calls or Skype calls or Facetiming.
“We’re very keen to make sure that we keep as many of our wonderful cast and brilliant characters on screen.”
So this could begin a brand new way of dating for Evelyn and Arthur, but could her friend Audrey be about to get involved?

Evelyn cannot go without gossip, or without a little drama to meddle in, but as she gets to grips with her group Zoom sessions, Audrey could be seen getting closer to Arthur, which won’t go down with Evelyn.
Audrey has quite a romantic background, with the last one being the abuser Geoff Metcalfe (Ian Metcalfe) who was attacked by his wife Yasmeen Nazir (Shelley King) recently.
Audrey got away just in time.
Before that, she was with the dastardly Lewis Archer (Nigel Havers) who didn’t just try to get together with Audrey’s sister, but also her best friend.
But, with loneliness creeping in, and Arthur obviously looking for love it seems Evelyn might have to make sure she marks her territory.

No one really knows if Arthur’s intentions are completely pure, not being able to see much of him before the lockdown, but could it be another Geoff situation?
Maureen who plays Evelyn joined Lorraine Kelly this week on Good Morning Britain and the actress hinted that it’s going to take a lot for her character to thaw.
Maureen explained: “Well I think they have been trying to give Evelyn a whole new side for a while but I like the old her.
“I am not keen on the idea of softening her. I think it is a good balance to have someone who can speak her mind.”
But, could a bit of competition be just what Evelyn needs?
Coronation Street airs on ITV Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm.
