Actor Connor McIntyre is to make a return to Coronation Street as villainous Pat Phelan.
Lecherous builder Phelan hasn’t been seen in Weatherfield since swindling the Windasses and blackmailing a desperate Anna into sleeping with him.
In April 2014, sleazy Phelan left town for Dubai in order to live off the cash he’d nabbed, but now it seems that the bane of the Windass clan is making a comeback.
Coronation Street’s Twitter feed just revealed the surprise news with this message:
Speaking to RadioTimes.com, a show insider added: “January’s episodes of Corrie will see a penniless Pat returning to his old haunts and getting a job working for Kevin Webster.
“But what will Anna make of Phelan’s reappearance? And what will the repercussions be for Anna’s fledgling romance with Kev?”
