DEE-DEE Bailey has been focusing on her career since she first rocked up the cobbles.
But love is on its way to her when a newcomer in Coronation Street begins to pursue her.
Hollyoaks star Callum Lill joined the ITV soap's line-up as he was cast as Joel Deering, a duty solicitor.
The new character is set to strike up a romance with established Weatherfield resident Dee-Dee Bailey (portrayed by Channique Sterling-Brown).
In recent months, Dee-Dee was suspected to embark on a relationship with criminal Damon Hay but he, instead, chose to have an affair with Sarah Platt.
This led to the Underworld PA finding out that she was pregnant and Dee-Dee Bailey was the first to figure out what she'd been up to with Damon.

Dee-Dee kept Sarah's secret for several weeks, begging her to tell the truth to her husband and her own boss Adam Barlow.
When Adam figured out Dee-Dee knew about Sarah's affair and never told him anything, the former US solicitor nearly lost her job in Weatherfield.
Coming up next week, Joel invites Dee-Dee out for a drink, explaining that he needs to pick her brain about US law.
Dee-Dee’s chuffed as she gets her books out, however Joel’s disappointed as he realises she doesn’t see it as a date.
