Antony posted: “Finally got a pic with @liammccheyne on the Grimshaws set, Number 11 Coronation Street, my home from home for the last 18 or so years.

“I’ve known him and his brother @connormccheyne since they were babies. Liam is back playing Dylan. Welcome home, son.”

It comes after the actor infuriated show bosses by accidentally hinting at a HUGE upcoming show spoiler.

The actor – who plays Sean Tully in the ITV soap – had taken to Twitter with a snap of co-star Dame Maureen Lipman.

Anthony, 46, rushed to delete the snap of Maureen, 76, celebrating with a birthday cake after spilling vital show details.

The actress and writer celebrated her special day on set, and posed for photos taken by her adoring co-star on Tuesday afternoon.

However, Anthony’s tribute was removed from his Twitter page after he hinted a wedding will happen in upcoming episodes of Corrie.

“We’re away filming a Coronation Street wedding, so we’ve had bubbles and cake in celebration,” he wrote.

No wedding plans have been made between the soap’s beloved characters, no doubt leaving fans confused over what to expect.

A wedding has already taken place on the ITV soap recently – as Toyah (played by Georgia Taylor) and Imran (Charlie De Melo) got hitched.

Last year, Corrie star Anthony was said to have signed a “big money” deal to remain on the soap.

He has played Sean Tully on the ITV show since July 2003 and is still loving his time portraying his character on the famous cobbles.

“I have just signed a new contract,” Antony told the Daily Star Sunday, he confirmed that he would be staying for the long-run.

“I’ve always said that if they’re happy for me to be there, then I’m happy to be there. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

“I feel that even more nowadays because some work is thin on the ground. I am very lucky to be in a job.”

Before Coronation Street, he shot to fame in 1999 playing Alexander on Channel 4’s Queer as Folk.

Sean has also appeared in several episodes of Absolutely Fabulous and once had his own ITV chat show, That Antony Cotton Show.

Meanwhile, actress Maureen was made a dame in the Queen’s birthday honours back in 2020 after a long TV career.
