Behind The Scenes: Hello Ladies!

Women of Weatherfield watch out - there is a new ‘Rat Pack’ on the street and they are going to be breaking some hearts!

As the nights draw in and summer comes to an end, temperatures will still be rising on Coronation Street as these four sexy guys make their presence known.

Get to know them a little better - go behind the scenes at the photo shoot below:

The Rat Pack

Oliver Farnworth, Dean Fagan, Sean Ward and Qasim Akhtar.

We've already seen Dean Fagan as smooth talking mechanic Luke Britton - after a brief flirtation with Carla Connor and a short lived fling with Katy Armstrong - Luke will set his sights on unlucky in love single mum Maria Connor.

And this month former Shameless actor Qasim Akhtar arrived as the latest member of the Nazir family, an angry young man who was an asset to the Rovers cricket team - although he is yet to bowl a maiden over it can’t be long before someone catches his eye.

Now they are to be joined by Sean Ward as Kylie’s bad boy ex Callum Logan and Oliver Farnworth who is playing Michael Rodwell’s estranged son Gavin - a man with a dark secret.

Both Callum and Gavin have a past that could really set the cat amongst the pigeons in the already fractured Platt household...

Callum is a character marked by his past misdemeanours but his good-looking charm and dark edge will be impossible to avoid. Viewers will watch in trepidation as Callum lures Kylie back into the life she left behind and while she might have escaped once before, will she be able to bury her past once and for all?

Oliver Farnworth, who is best known for his parts in Hollyoaks and Mr Selfridge, has bagged the role as Les Dennis’ character Michael Rodwell’s long-lost son, Gavin, but he is a man with a secret and may not be all he seems!

Stuart Blackburn, Series Producer said:

“These four guys are certainly going to make their mark in the coming months, they are sexy, confident, engaging and yet still with edge and depth, the women of Weatherfield won’t know what’s hit them.”
