Get Ready Soap Fans, A New Irish Character Is Joining Corrie

And he'll be on our screens before the month is out!

By Rebecca Keane

For fans missing a Northern Irish twang on the cobbles, here comes your man…Life for Carla Connor hasn’t been easy lately. What with trying to repair her relationship after cheating on on-again-off-again fella Peter Barlow (with his half-brother mind you!), her dad Johnny in prison who’s quickly losing his sight and a busy underwear factory to run, she has more on her her plate than most of our Corrie residents.Her life may be set to get even worse as a business associate is to come out of the works – and given her fraught relationships with previous business partners, we can smell the sweet sweet drama from here. Hitting the cobblestones will be new face on the street Lucas, a colleague of Carla’s

Hailing from our very own Co. Antrim, actor Glen Wallace will be appearing in Coronation Street from 29th January, and it’s said his character will have his hands full with the business mogul of the street as he’ll find himself “embroiled in her personal problems”. Yikes!

Long-time soap fans may remember Wallace from roles in Casualty, Eastenders but mostly from his brilliant performance as Malachy Fisher in Hollyoaks! These soap hunks really get around, huh?

Glen Wallace will be appearing on our screens  from 7.30pm on 29th January – make sure to tune in!
