The comedian and actor is to play Dean Upton, the landlord of The Flying Horse, who will be going up against Rovers landlord Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) in a pub cricket match, with the scenes due to air in August.
In a statement released via the soap’s official website, Moorhouse said:
“I’m delighted to be treading the cobbles. It’s always been a dream of mine to appear in the Rovers Return, even though as Dean, landlord of the Flying Horse, I feel like I’m a spy!”
Moorhouse will film his short stint for the Granada serial shortly before taking his one man show to the Edinburgh Festival this Summer.
