Ian Kelsey joins Coronation Street – and he’s teaming up with dodgy Pat Phelan!

The ex-Doctors and Emmerdale star will play property developer Vinny


Sinister Pat Phelan is to get a new partner in crime in the form of dodgy businessman Vinny, played by former Doctors star Ian Kelsey.


The actor, who left the BBC1 daytime medical drama last year, has now started filming at Corrie and will be seen on screen from August.

With Jason soon to be off the scene, Phelan will be seen helping Eileen look after his business interests. But he has big plans of his own – which is where property developer Vinny comes in.

Soap bosses are remaining tight-lipped about what the scheming pair will get up to, but it will no doubt spell big trouble for the residents of the Street…
