Digital Spy reveals that the actor has landed the guest role of Adrian, who is introduced to the cobbles when Eileen decides to try internet dating.
Moraghan announced his own casting on Twitter after filming his first scenes last week, but details of his role can be confirmed for the first time today.

Adrian will make his first appearance on screen in April and a Coronation Street spokesperson told Digital Spy that he will be sticking around for at least a few months.
Eileen has a history of heartbreak in the romance department, so it remains to be seen whether life dating Adrian will be any happier for her.
