Street of tears as Ken loses in love ...

Coronation Street's Ken Barlow is about to be put through the emotional wringer in an incredible wedding- that-won't-be storyline.

The mild-mannered schoolteacher will be pushed to the edge of despair in the run-up to his marriage to hairdresser Denise Osbourne.

The thrice-married Weatherfield romeo's hopes of settling down with her and their young son will be dashed because of her affair with brother-in-law Brian Dunkley.

And yesterday a Street source revealed that Bill Roache - who plays Ken - turns in a stunning performance.

The insider said: "Bill plays the scenes for all they are worth. Viewers will cry with him.

"Poor Ken thinks he is the happiest man in the world until Denise's trysts with Brian are exposed.

"In his time in Weatherfield, Ken has suffered some tragedies.

"But these are his worst moments of all."

The story will unfold later this month.

The source added: "Ken's happiness is snatched away in harrowing circumstances.

"Denise cannot hold her primitive lusts in check."
