Last night on Coronation Street, Weatherfield County football player Tommy Orpington turned up on the show.
He hired Michelle as his wedding planner and she can't understand the fuss over Tommy that the lads are making. They're fan-struck, of course and it could be a good few scenes as they fawn over the footballer.
And he does a bit of modelling too.
He's the second ex-Emmerdale actor who's been signed up for the show since ex-Emmerdale Producer Kate Oates has taken over. She brought in Paul Loughran (Butch Dingle) as Craig's dad Darryl. I do hope she signs up Charlie Hardwick (Val Pollard) asap too!
If I recall, I don't think we've met many other Weatherfield County players in Corrie before, have we? There was Wayne Farrell, Weatherfield County star striker who dated Raquel Wolstenhulme. And Warren Baldwin played for County too, didn't he?
