Is it Damon Hay?
An eagle-eyed Coronation Street fan has discovered the true identity of Lauren Bolton's mystery boyfriend, and it appears he has a dark connection to the street. Played by actress Cait Fitton, Lauren has been claiming to be in a relationship with a wealthy new boyfriend on the show. However, she has kept his identity a secret, leaving viewers to wonder who he could be.
Lauren's time on the Street has been filled with turmoil, including the revelation that her father was racist and her involvement with older men as a young teen. Despite finding work in the cafe, concerns about her mystery man have fans worried that her luck may take a turn for the worse once again.
Now, some viewers speculate that Lauren's mysterious boyfriend could be Damon Hay, played by Ciaran Griffiths. Damon will be returning to the Square soon after quitting earlier this year. He was previously involved in a scandalous affair with Sarah Platt, which ultimately ended when she fell pregnant and chose to move forward with another man.
Damon's criminal past and connections to other characters on the show make him a figure not to be messed with in Weatherfield. Could Lauren have found a connection with him? Only time will tell.
Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 8pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
