Coronation Street bosses have signed up Andrew Paul to play a new character on the cobbles.
The former star of The Bill has already commenced filming with the Granada production as brewery rep Dan Jones, whose smooth-talking ways tickle the fancy of Liz McDonald.
Although it appears Dan is the man to help Liz over her heartache after she uncovers Tony and Tracy’s affair, she doesn’t bargain on him having a secret past with another of Weatherfield’s female residents.
“Will Liz find out Dan’s dark secret before it is too late? And how will he react when he bumps into the blast from his past who could ruin his budding romance with landlady Liz?” – ITV
Andrew played PC Dave Quinnan for 13 years and later joined rural saga Where the Heart is as Billy Boothe. He also had a recurring role in EastEnders as Maxwell Moon. He will make his first appearance on the street next month.
