Two Christmas proposals for Coronation Street

'Coronation Street' will feature two festive marriage proposals.

Mechanic Tyrone Dobbs is set to get down on one knee to pop the question to his partner Fiz Brown while Robert Preston will ask his ex-wife Tracy Barlow to marry him again.

Actor Les Dennis, who plays Michael Rodwell, told ITV's 'This Morning' about Tyrone's proposal: "There won't be a dry eye in the house. I think everybody will be watching and loving it. It's so moving... "

Alan Halsall (Tyrone) added: "It's a very very romantic setting, so Tyrone does the right thing and gets down on one knee..."

However, he revealed that Jennie McAlpine (Fiz) forgot about Tyrone's first proposal and she admitted: "I did, I forgot he proposed on a white horse."

Alan protested: "How can you forget I rode a white horse up and down white cobbles?!"

Meanwhile, Tracy is set to be torn between two Robs, her former husband Robert and ex -fiance Rob Donovan, who is currently in prison.

Kate Ford, who plays Tracy, told Radio Times: "She's tidying up around the house and she finds a box with a ring in it. She's totally shocked, but it's a beautiful ring and she thinks, 'yay he's going to propose'. But then half of her is torn over Rob.

"She's in conflict because Rob's mentioned that he might get released from prison, so the shine is taken off it in a way, because she's thinking she can't accept his proposal until she knows what's going on with Rob."
