Every time Ken and Audrey have a scene together at the moment, I find myself pulling a face a bit like this...
...and making a noise a bit like this:
As you might have guessed by now, I'm not really feeling the love for Ken and Audrey as a couple.
Don't get me wrong. I love Audrey Roberts and I'm quite fond of Ken. By all means let them find love at their stage in life - but please, Corrie, not together.
It feels, to me, as if Ken and Audrey have been shoved together for the sake of it just because they're around the same age and single. Ken's hardly grieved for Deirdre and I can just about get my head around him jumping into bed with the Loch Nessa Monster because, well, there has to be a first time after a partner passes on.
But I can't stomach Ken and Audrey together, it just feels all wrong.
Corrie Producer Stuart Blackburn, when he made Audrey set her cap at King Ken, said that Ken and Aud would become the Street's Ross and Rachel (from Friends). I don't want them to be Ross and Rachel. I want them to be Ken and Audrey.
Blackburn, in that same interview some time ago said he was hoping to further expand the show's older cast with the arrival of a new male character.He said: "I'm looking for a comedy character who's a bit older and isn't exactly Fred Elliott, but might be of that ilk. I can't say much more than that, but we are in negotiations with the person we have in mind. The character is in his 60s or 70s and is a very naughty, cheeky chappie. And this actor is so, so Corrie!"
I wonder if that's where newcomer Derek Griffiths will fit in?
What do you think about Ken and Audrey as a couple - does it work for you? Yay or Nay? It's a big fat Nay from me.
