Corrie's new gay hunk

The Sunday People report that Coronation Street's to have a new gay hunky bodybuilder who'll get Sean Tully's knickers in a twist. He'll be called Leon and played by Andrew Langtree. Digital Spy have some pictures of his first scenes on Corrie here.

Andrew has appeared previously in Heartbeat, Holby City and Cutting It. He's also a brilliant singer and trained at Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts. He was picked by Sir Paul McCartney to sing at his wife Linda's memorial service and by former Prime Minister's wife Cherie Blair to sing in front of the Queen at Buckingham Palace.

Andrew hits our screens on July 3 when Sean decides to shed a few pounds in the gym with Jason and locks eyes with Leon. But when Sean realises that Leon really fancies straight Jason, the factory worker embarks on a series of daft lies with comical results.

Just wanna say i am moving over here after the very sad demise of Corrie Blog.

Regarding this casting i am quite excited by it. I am not the biggest fan of Sean (i have actually never met anyone who is), but i think this storyline could have mileage and the comedic element to it sounds great. I can't wait to see Jason's reaction when he finds out Leon fancies him and thinks that he is gay!

Peter, welcome to the Coronation streetblog. I like the comedy aspect to this but I hope it's not too embarrassing!

Sean has been underused lately so it will be good to have him in some storylines again. Not his biggest fan, but do not dislike him either.

Welcome Peter!

This guy Peter is adorable. Is he really gay? I guess the best ones are always taken, huh?
Welcome Peter, even thought I don't often watch Corrie, maybe I will steal a glimpse every now and then.

Sorry my mistake. I meant Andrew. Wow! Shame I can't meet him. A chance encounter . . . now we're dreaming.

I know for a fact that he's single.
But if you want to know his sexuality, then you should send him some fan mail.

He was a bit of a gay icon when he played Sky in Mama Mia 10 years ago.
