Denise Welch’s son looks set to follow in his mother’s soap footsteps by joining the cast of ‘Coronation Street’. 

Louis Healy has reportedly auditioned for a role on the long-running ITV show, on which his mother played Rovers Return landlady Natalie Horrocks from 1997 to 2000.

Louis’ father, Tim Healy, also had a role on ‘Corrie’, playing the father of barman Sean Tully, Paul Jones. 

Showbiz runs in the Welch/Healy family, as Denise and Tim’s other son is 1975 frontman Matty. 

Despite leaving the Street 16 years ago, former ‘Loose Woman’ Denise recently returned to soapland, popping up as Alison Slater in ‘EastEnders’ earlier this year.
