Coronation Street: Alan Halsall on Tyrone’s future – “There’s a court case to expect”

“Tyrone is now portrayed as he perpetrator and not the victim", the actor told at last night's National Television Awards

Last night, Coronation Street viewers saw Tyrone Dobbs put under arrest and his daughter Ruby taken into temporary foster care. It looks like the scheming Kirsty (Natalie Gumede) has well and truly turned the tables on the beleaguered Ty and actor Alan Halsall has revealed that the situation is not going to improve any time soon:


“There’s a court case to expect,” the Corrie star said backstage at the National Television Awards. “Tyrone is now portrayed as he perpetrator and not the victim. So we’ll have to see how that pans out.”

This past year has seen Halsall at the centre of a long-running storyline that has found his character being physically abused by partner Kirsty. And last night, the actor’s efforts were rewarded with an NTA win in the Best Serial Drama Performance category – not that Halsall is entirely comfortable with life in the limelight: 

“I still live where I grew up my whole life,” he commented. “My home life is very different to my work life. I’m quite a private guy who likes to go to his local pub. This is very new to me – we don’t do this every week, trust me.”
