A HUGE soap actor from a classic British favourite is set to join the cast of Coronation Street, show bosses have confirmed.
Corrie bosses have revealed that former Brookside legend Simon O’Brien – who played Damon Grant in the C4 drama – has joined the cast of the ITV soap.
Simon will play the role of Frank Bardsley, a mysterious new love interest for one Weatherfield resident.
However, preliminary spoilers suggest he will then have a relationship with an entirely different cobbles character.
A tweet sent from the official Coronation Street account on Thursday read: “Welcome, the newest member of the team, Frank Bardsley, played by Simon O’Brien!
“Could love be in the air for a lucky someone on The Street?”
According to Digital Spy, Simon started filming his new scenes around two months ago.
His guest character Frank will be appearing on screen for the next couple of months.
