Connor reveals that he was only supposed to be in Corrie for three short scenes as slimy Pat Phelan, but he's been called back by popular demand.
On Phelan's return, Connor says: "This man thinks he's a cat in a world of mice. He's back now, broke and with no prospects. He wants to get back on his perch and is thinking about how he can ingratiate himself with the people who will be useful to him. It won't just be Anna this time - he'll be spreading the love around..."
Connor left school in Toxteth, Liverpool with no qualifications. He worked as a lifeguard, boxing coach and car salesman but says it was boredom that led him to the Barbican Theatre in Plymouth (where he lives) to find out what the inside of a theatre looked like!
He says: "I asked if I could watch the actors rehearse and I was thrilled by what was happening in that dark space. I thought 'I'm going to get involved in this!'. I did anything I could to be a part of it."
