Corrie's Cotton prefers single Sean
Antony Cotton likes it when his soap alter-ego is single
Coronation Street's Antony Cotton has revealed he finds his character Sean Tully more fun when he is single.
Factory worker Sean is set to split from partner Marcus Dent, after his jealousy over the midwife's close friendship with colleague Aiden.
Antony told Soaplife magazine: "I prefer it when Sean's single because he's optimistic. I'm looking forward to him talking about boys again."
But he admitted the split between Sean and Marcus, played by Charlie Condou, had been "heartbreaking" to act out.
He said: "When they've both calmed down, they have a real talk about how they're feeling. Marcus reveals he doesn't know how he feels about Sean any more and questions whether they'll be able to work through this.
"In the end, it's Sean who does the breaking up. It's utterly heartbreaking for both of them.
"It's been great with Marcus and it's sad when they split up, but they do split up for the right reasons."
