CORRIE’S Daniel Brocklebank has dished the gossip on Billy making history with the soap’s first gay wedding – but he also hints there’ll be trouble ahead.
Daniel, who plays vicar Billy Mayhew on the the Cobbles, revealed the news as he appeared on the ITV lunchtime show.

Chatting with hosts Charlene White, Judi Love, Kelle Bryan and Brenda Edwards, Daniel said: “I have been told by the powers that be that I’m allowed to share there will be a proposal in the future.
“Whether it’s coming from Todd or Paul remains yet to be seen. But there will be a proposal.”
His revelation was met with squeals of excitement from the four hosts, as viewers last saw Billy send both his ex Todd (Gareth Pierce) and current boyfriend Paul (Peter Ash) away.
Over the past few months viewers have watched as Todd has been trying to get back into his life again by using Paul.

His scheming saw him ask a young boy called Will to pretend he’s in trouble and ask for Paul’s help when he’s supposed to be doing things with Billy as a couple.
But the plot backfires and results in Summer Spellman (Harriet Bibby) ending up in hospital.
On the drama, Daniel told the Loose Women: “I just think Billy’s just blinded at the moment – he doesn’t know what’s going on – and poor Paul…
“They broke up in last night’s episode, so they’re probably both feeling rotten today.
“It’s a horrible place to be but Billy just can’t see what Todd is up to – he’s very clever.”
Daniel went on to comment that any wedding plans would be unlikely to go smoothly.

Will it be Paul who pops the question?
On potentially being part of the Manchester-based soap’s first gay wedding, Daniel said: “It would be phenomenal – we’ve had two attempted lesbian weddings which were foiled before they actually happened, but it would be the first, if it all goes ahead.”
“It would be wonderful to be part of that,” he added.
“I think my only concern with Billy is that because he’s a vicar, because he’s religious, the gays, we still can’t get married in a religious ceremony and I think that is probably something Billy would want to do.”
