Conor McIntyre is set to return to ‘Coronation Street’, as the villainous Pat Phelan.
The dodgy character was last seen after blackmailing Anna Windass in 2014, but he’ll back on’t cobbles in the coming weeks, as confirmed on the soap’s Twitter page:
A source has hinted at what Pat will be up to on his return, telling Radio Times: "January’s episodes of ‘Corrie’ will see a penniless Pat returning to his old haunts and getting a job working for Kevin Webster.
"But what will Anna make of Phelan’s reappearance? And what will the repercussions be for Anna’s fledgling romance with Kev?"
Pat caused havoc for the Windass family when he arrived in Weatherfield in 2013, convincing Owen to go into business with him.
The family ended up losing their home when things didn’t work out, and the saga also put the family’s relationships to the test.
It’s an exciting time for ‘Corrie’ fans, and a number of huge storylines are currently in the pipeline, including more testing times Carla Connor, while Sarah Platt is currently processing the news that she’s pregnant with the evil Callum’s baby.
