Could Daniel Osbourne be a chip off the old Barlow block? Ken's son may only have been on Coronation Street five minutes, but the soap's writers are already lining up a love interest for him - a sure hint that Daniel will be continuing the family tradition of romancing the women of Weatherfield.

Viewers have already seen the first hints that still waters run deep in the case of the apparently unassuming Daniel. And it looks as though more drama is to come during the first part of 2017.

A Corrie spokesperson said: "Tensions run high in the Barlow household as Ken’s children and grandchildren jostle for position. The boys soon have hearts fluttering and while Daniel may not be the one with the reputation as a ladies man, when he sets his sights on one local girl, it appears he may be the real heartbreaker."

So with whom will Daniel be getting involved? Be sure to leave your suggestions below...
