Ian, the cell mate, is played by actor Carl Rice who you might have seen on TV, ooh, just a few times before! I love him in the sitcom Trollied which airs on Sky TV and it's a show I've watched from the very beginning. Being a big fan of his, I'm overjoyed to see him in Corrie, even if it is just for a limited spell while Rob Donovan's back on the show.
Carl Rice has also appeared in numerous TV shows including Benidorm, Holby City, Casualty and Shameless. You can view his extensive CV here.
Carl is on twitter and tweeted this last night:
