It doesn’t look like Coronation Street's Eva Price will be doing a lot of smiling throughout the soap's much-anticipated wedding week, but things couldn’t be more different behind the camera. Actress Catherine Tyldesley shared a behind-the-scenes photo of her with co-star Georgia Taylor, who plays Toyah Battersea in the show, who were both beaming as they posed for a picture on set in the church. In the caption, Catherine teased that drama was to come, writing: " #behindthescenes ... this gorgeous lady ... #wedding#corrie #drama #poophitsfan ... not long now..."

Viewers were eager to know how the revenge plot storyline will pan out, with one saying: "Can't wait to see this episode," while another said: "So excited for this wedding!!" A third added: "Hope this revenge plot is worth the wait!"

The bride-to-be is set to feature in a dramatic showdown with former friend Maria Connor, who has been having an affair with her husband-to-be, Aidan Connor, for over a year. The wrongful pair have no idea that Eva is all too aware of their deceit, making for nail-biting viewing as everything unravels throughout the week.

In preview photos of scenes set to commence on Monday, Maria is pictured crashing the wedding – and all hell will then break loose, with both Eva and Maria ending up in the fountain after a cat fight.

A dramatic showdown between Maria and Eva will have viewers hooked

Catherine Tyldesley, who plays the bride-to-be, described the fight scenes as "knackering" while chatting to Metro, and also teased that her character is set to end up in danger. She said: "I’m very high up at one point! I am terrified of heights so that was a real challenge for me – especially when a wasp came. Everyone else thought it was hilarious but I had a breakdown. They are the most challenging scenes I have ever shot. It’s very action packed."
