Here's the first official publicity picture showing the two new additions to the Connor clan.
Jonny Connor and Kate Connor arrived on screen in the soap last night.
Jonny is Aidan Connor's dad and Kate Connor is Aidan's sister.
What else do we know about them so far? Well, Jonny is played by actor Richard Hawley and Kate is played by Faye Brooks.
Kate is engaged to her girlfriend who is a soldier, and she'll be joining the show soon. You can find out more about her here.
Johnny will be a "man about town", a self made man in his own right. He's described as: "Funny, charming, ruthless in business, Johnny is the sort of guy you'd be proud to call a friend".
I like the sound of Jonny a lot, as I feel Corrie needs another man of an older age to join in with Ken, Roy and Norris.
All we need now is our battle-axe back.
