Since her arrival in Weatherfield, Faye’s character has been at the centre of a number of big storylines when it has come to her relationships, including her split with Caz which led to her setting Maria Connor up for her murder.
Despite a brief romance with Sophie Webster, recent scenes have seen Kate focus on her family, especially her dad Johnny Connor, who will be left reeling when he discovers that he has MS.
However, it appears things will start to heat up for the Weatherfield resident after she teased a new romance that will cause shockwaves.
“Trust me its not quiet any more! We are ready to go for this year!,” she told the Radio Times.

“I’m not going to give too much away but there’s definitely something coming on the love life front.”
Faye then went on to promise: “It’s going to shock people.”
The actress, who is currently dating Gareth Gates, revealed that the romance will even surprise Kate.
“I don’t think fans will guess who it is and neither is Kate, but I’m really excited and want to embrace it – and hopefully this time it will be for the long haul,” she added.
While Faye didn’t give any more clues away, viewers of the soap have been speculating whether the person in question could be Rana Nazir after the pair began to get close.

“I bet Kate’s new love interest is either Alya or Rana,” commented one viewer.
Fans will watch over the next few weeks when Zeedan’s wife becomes involved in Johnny’s secret regarding his MS after he suffers a fall and needs medical attention.
Others thought it could be Rana’s sister-in-law Alya or even Shona Ramsey, who recently shocked David Platt when she confessed that she was Clayton Hibbs’ mum.
