Connor says he'd like Phelan to take over the Rovers. However, if that doesn't happen, Jason had better watch out as he admits that Phelan has his sights on Jason's building company.
Speaking about being brought back to Corrie, he's asked if he knew he'd be back for a second time. Connor says: "Soap law demands that villains always get their comeuppance in the end, so I wasn't really shocked to get the call. The writers have had the time to really flesh Phelan out and create a three dimensional character who's a bit of a tricky proposition. I'm delighted to be here and even more fun this time around!"
At that mention of soap law then, I wonder if Phelan has a life-span on the show and how long he'll last? Watching him with Eileen this week in the Bistro when he was sat with his back to Anna and Kev, it seems to me that Phelan has unfinished business with Anna. I wonder if we might see even more of his nastiness surface towards Anna, perhaps culminating in some sort of hostage situation? Just a thought and pure speculation!
