Nosferatu of Coronation Street. What a monster!
2. He's not ALL bad
3. He's a Grafter
4. We all know the truth
Just like with Richard Hillman, the viewers and fans are "in the know". We all know what Phelan's up to. Kevin and Michael know he's not to be trusted but just as with Norris harking on about Hillman, no-one believes them. Not yet anyroad.
5. He's actually a bit cuddly
He's an alpha male with a cuddly side which makes him very watchable indeed.
