Chat queen Denise Welch faces her toughest interview to date - with the ex-husband she accused of cheating on her.

The former Coronation Street star will sit opposite soap actor David Easter on her ITV2 show, Soap Fever, next Sunday.

The 43-year-old actress agonised over whether to invite David, who plays rat Pete Callan in Channel 5's Family Affairs, on her show.

They married in 1985 after a long relationship, while David was playing Pat Hancock in Brookside. But the couple divorced in 1988 and have barely spoken since.

At the time, Denise said: "David preached monogamy at me and then decided he could play away for Britain."

In 1987, David met model Tina Bond. The couple, who have a teenage daughter, were together ten years before splitting four years ago.

Denise later married Geordie actor Tim Healy in 1988 and the couple have two children, Matthew, 12, and baby Louis, ten months.
