We are delighted to confirm the casting of actor Jim Moir, best known as comic Vic Reeves.
Jim will play television presenter Colin who comes to Weatherfield to film with Norris and Mary after they are chosen to make an appearance on his show. It’s not long before Colin finds himself embroiled in the lives of other street residents.
Jim will begin filming a three month stint in July. He will be on screen from late summer.
“I've been a lifelong fan of Corrie. In fact, I think I saw the very first one. I try not to miss any episodes.
"I'm really looking forward to acting in Corrie. It's a real thrill to be part of a British Institution.”
Coronation Street Executive Producer Kieran Roberts said:
"Jim is such a well-loved entertainer and a brilliant actor so we're thrilled he's joining the cast of Coronation Street."
Fans will have to wait till the summer to see what Colin’s arrival in Weatherfield means for the residents of Coronation Street.
