As Frank's relationship with Carla becomes much more serious, get set to meet his parents, Anne and Sam Foster.
Their first appearance is on the 5th September when they arrive for Frank and Carla's engagement party at the Bistro.
Anne will be played by Gwen Taylor, who appeared in the classic ITV comedy Duty Free, and more recently as dishonest Peggy Armstrong in Heartbeat.
Joining her as Sam is Paul Clayton - who previously appeared in Corrie as businessman Mal Quillan in 2005. Paul is well known for a number of television roles including Peep Show and met a nasty end at the hands of the Ood in Doctor Who.
A Coronation Street spokesperson said: "Sam and Anne are pretty full -on characters, like Frank. No sooner have they arrived than they’re talking grandchildren which instantly freaks Carla out and tensions soon rise."
