Corrie spoilers: Inside Will Mellor's marriage as Cobbles star preps for Strictly; plus Emmerdale & EastEnders news | The Sun

WILL Mellor was announced as the first contestant of this year's Strictly Come Dancing on Thursday, and now The Sun can take a look into his exciting home life.

Will, 46, has been married to his wife Michelle McSween for 15 years.

The pair met in the late-90s and have been going strong ever since.

The former Corrie star married his wife in 2007 and have since had two kids, Jayden, 18, and Renee, 14.

During a chat with OK! last year, the pair revealed how they keep their marriage alive – and it's very cheeky.

"Sex in the afternoon!", Will confessed, as Michelle added: "Wa-hey!"

He added: "We just make time for each other. We hate routine – it kills the romance – so it's important for us to step out of that when we can."

Following the announcement that he would be joining Strictly bookies already see him as an early favourite.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It’s early days but as things stand Will Mellor is leading the way in the Strictly betting; he’s certainly one to watch as far as punters are concerned at this point.”

Mellor is an impressive 8/1 to win the show, beating his co star Kym Marsh (12/1).
