Rewind on Ryan Connor

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog July 2012, reposted to this blog with permission.)

Right, then. Ryan Connor is back on Coronation Street. He looks a little different as he's being played by a different actor but he's back and by all accounts, will turn out to be troubled.

His return has prompted me to write a blog post to remind ourselves about Ryan Connor. And so, here we go.

Ryan turned up in Coronation Street when the shiny-haired Connor clan hit the cobbles in 2006. The Connor clan included brothers Liam (now dead) and Paul (now dead) their sister Michelle and her son Ryan.

Mother and son lived happily together until Ryan started being stalked by a stranger. Anyway, the stranger stalker turned out to be a man called Nick Neeson who believed Ryan was his real son, and that the poor lad who was living in Nick Neeson's house and had been brought up as his son, Alex Neeson, was Michelle's real baby.

There'd been a baby mix-up at the hospital when Ryan and Alex were born and a DNA test confirmed this.

So, got that? Ryan is not Michelle's real son, Alex is.

Confused Ryan moved out of the flat with his mum and Alex moved in with his. Confused viewers tried to keep up with the plot as one dark-shiny-haired-son replaced another in Michelle's fickle affections.

And then Ryan left for University in Glasgow and hasn't been seen since.  I don't know how much Irn Bru he's been drinking up there in that Scotland, but he's gone from this:
