Comedian Justin Moorhouse is to make his Corrie debut later this month when he turns up at the Rovers as Dean, the landlord of the Flying Horse who immediately riles Steve by bragging about how good business is.
When Steve (Simon Gregson) then suggests that the Rovers could hammer his pub team at cricket, Dean tells him that another team has pulled out of a fixture in a couple of weeks' time. After the pair shake hands on a match, Steve then faces the tough task of putting a cricket team together...
Speaking recently about his signing to the ITV soap, Moorhouse said: "I’m delighted to be treading the cobbles. It’s always been a dream of mine to appear in the Rovers Return, even though as Dean, landlord of the Flying Horse, I feel like I’m a spy!"
