Coronation Street: first look at Rob Donovan and Ryan Connor
Marc Baylis joins Coronation Street
Coronation Street bosses have been busy on the casting front; they have found two new hunky men. Marc Baylis has signed on as Carla Connor's brother and actor Sol Heras will play Michelle Connor's son.
Auditions began in March for a heartthrob actor to play bad boy Rob, the long-lost brother of knicker factory boss Carla, played by Alison King.
Take a look at 33-year-old Marc Baylis, who has been cast in the role. Marc said: "I feel incredibly honoured to be joining the very talented cast of Coronation Street. Rob is an exciting character to play and I am hoping he is going to ruffle a few Weatherfield feathers."
Corrie producer Phil Collinson added: "I'm very pleased to welcome Marc to the cast - the latest in a long line of handsome Corrie charmers. Carla's brother Rob is sure to set hearts fluttering in Weatherfield from the minute he arrives."
He added: "The audience can expect thrills and a few broken hearts when this handsome bad boy hits town."
Marc's previous TV roles include guest appearances on Law And Order: UK, E4 teen sci-fi drama Misfits and playing a New Year's reveller in BBC soap EastEnders in 2009.
Corrie's new men: Marc Baylis and Sol Heras
Rob Donovan will arrive on the cobbles in early summer, straight out of prison, to help recovering alcoholic Carla make a fresh start. The ladies' man will quickly set his sights on Eva Price, daughter of Rovers Return landlady Stella. Eva is currently dating restaurant manager Nick Tilsley.
The role of Michelle's son Ryan has been recast, and will now be played by Sol Heras. He will be back on the cobbles after being thrown out of university in Glasgow.
Producer Phil Collinson said: "Ryan returns carrying a dark secret and Michelle is going to have the fight of her life as she battles to get her troubled son back on the straight and narrow. Sol is a brilliant young actor and I'm so excited to welcome him to the cast."
Fans may recognise Sol from ITV1 flop Rock Rivals (which starred Corrie's Michelle Collins) and E4's Hollyoaks Later.
So that's two bad boys for Coronation Street this summer (certainly explains the theme of the photo above). Has David Platt been deposed?
Apparently, Rob and Ryan will even square up against each other when Rob decides to "teach Ryan a thing or two about family loyalty". That all sounds very EastEnders to me.
