Jacob Roberts joins Coronation Street


Jacob Roberts joins Coronation Street

A new face for Weatherfield…

Former Hollyoaks actor Jacob Roberts has been cast as the secret son of Coronation Street‘s Bernie Winter. Bernie has been on a mission to track down her long-lost son Zodiac who was adopted and had his name changed to Christopher Green not long after he was born.

Jacob Roberts:

“It’s absolutely amazing to be joining the cast of Coronation Street. When I walked on set for the first time it felt a bit overwhelming because the attention to detail is just incredible, it actually makes you feel that you are on a real street. My mum and dad are really chuffed too which is lovely. My mum has always watched Coronation Street, I’ve always kept up to date with it too, so it just feels surreal to be here. Meeting all of the cast and crew was great, I really do feel at home here.”

In tonight’s episode Bernie – played by Jane Hazelgrove – continued her search for the child she gave away almost thirty years ago, as she tracked down a man with the same name and of the right age. However, she was left disappointed when he denied being the person she was looking for. But as a despondent Bernie headed home viewers saw the man take out a jade elephant toy, exactly like the one Bernie told Dev she had bought for her son.

What’s more Kit Green is a detective brought in by DS Swain to help solve the mystery of missing teenager Lauren Bolton.

Jacob Roberts:

“I’m looking forward to everyone meeting Kit but I do think he is going to be a very misunderstood character at first. He’s been really hurt throughout his life and although he has a good heart, he has some deep-rooted resentment with his biological mum, Bernie, which will be really interesting to play out.” 

In Wednesday night’s episode things take an unexpected turn when a drunken Bernie bumps into Kit on the street and he arrests her for being drunk and disorderly. Still hiding his true identity from his birth mother, the Weatherfield cop uses his job to find out more about her rather colourful past.

Does Christopher ‘Kit’ Green want to reconnect with his biological mother and how will he feel when he discovers that she has two other children older than him that she didn’t give up for adoption?

Jacob Roberts joins the cast of Coronation Street after playing the part of Damon Kinsella in Hollyoaks for six years.

Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday on ITV1 and STV at 8 pm
