Coronation Street star confirms return to ITV soap as they share snap of scripts

Coronation Street star Liam McCheyne has confirmed that he will be returning to the ITV soap as Sean Tully’s son Dylan Wilson.

Taking to social media over the weekend, the actor posted a picture of his scripts as he announced his comeback to the cobbles.

Liam was last seen in Weatherfield as his character Dylan in 2020 and he is due to start filming on 17 May.

The young actor penned on Twitter: "BIG NEWS‼️‼️ Can't wait and super excited to get back to work @itvcorrie on May 17th. Hopefully many memories to come. Have a good weekend everyone see you soon."

While he added on Instagram: "Can't wait to get back to work on the 17th super excited, been a long time coming @coronationstreet Hopefully many memories and fun to come!!!!!"

Liam's character Dylan is the on-screen son of Sean, played by Antony Cotton, after he agreed to be a donor for his friend Violet Wilson, played by Jenny Platt, in 2007.

It is not known what his storyline will involve but his return is set to air on screen over the summer.

Soap fans were quick to share their excitement over the return as one put: "Looking forward to your return Liam. Glad you’re coming back stay safe and hope all is well with you."

A different viewer wrote: "Great! About time."

Another follower commented: "Yes Liam" with celebrating emojis.

While a different soap fan joked: "I’m jealous of you, working alongside all those legends."

It comes after Coronation Street won the Best Soap & Continuing Drama gong at the 2022 BAFTA TV Awards on Sunday 8 May.

The ITV soap went up against Casualty, Emmerdale and Holby City in the coveted category.

Corrie stars Sally Dynevor and Charlie de Melo, who play Sally Metcalfe and Imran Habeeb on the ITV soap, took to the stage to accept the gong.

During the winner's speech, Sally paid tribute to campaigner Sylvia Lancaster following her passing last month.

Sylvia was the mother of Sophie Lancaster, who was murdered after she and her boyfriend Robert Maltby were targeted for being goths.

Since her daughter's passing in 2007, aged 20, Sylvia has spent the last fifteen years campaigning to create education programmes to combat prejudice and intolerance against those from alternative subcultures. She was given an OBE in 2014 for her efforts.

Last year, Coronation Street tackled the issue of hate crime during one of its storylines that had many similarities to what happened to Sophie.
