Dennis Tanner clashes with Norris.

(Not really a spoiler since who couldn't see this one coming?)

Philip Lowrie has revealed that when Dennis Tanner returned to Coronation Street he was homeless, sleeping rough on the cobbles.

The actor, who left the soap in 1968, is returning after 43 years as bad boy Dennis, son of Corrie legend Elsie Tanner, but revealed on This Morning he will not be making a glamorous entrance for his comeback.

Philip said: "When we see Dennis on May the 12th (Dec. 6 on Canadian screens), he's actually homeless, sleeping in a doorway in a cardboard box."

Dennis appears back in the soap when he bumps into Sophie Webster and her girlfriend Sian Powers at the soup kitchen where they are volunteering.

Ken Barlow and Emily Bishop are the few Corrie characters left who will remember Dennis, along with Rita Sullivan. She and Dennis had a brief liaison that lasted just one episode, so it remains to be seen whether they'll rekindle their romance next month. Ken and Dennis are old enemies, but Philip revealed he is set to clash with another of the Street's older residents who is not at all happy about him turning up.

"I'm sorry to say Norris doesn't like Dennis, not one little bit," he explained.
