Robin Askwith returns to Coronation Street

Robin Askwith, the actor most famous for his role in the Confessions Of movies, will return to Coronation Street in another cameo role.

Robin will play veteran rocker Ritchie, a close friend of Dennis Tanner, who used to represent him when he was at the height of his fame, according to Digital Spy (from the Daily Star)

The reappearance of Dennis' old friend will rekindle his love for the music industry, and he decides to become Ritchie's manager again. However, this does not go down well with Rita.

Digital Spy says that Askwith reportedly starts filming on set today with his first scenes being aired later in the autumn.

And it's not the first time Askwith has appeared on Corrie. In August 2007 he played the part of travel rep Aidan when Steve and Eileen went on holiday to Malta.

It's about time Dennis has something to do, he's been very under used. Trust Rita to put her oar in, you'd think she'd be glad for him to have an old mate call on him.

This is good news. Can't wait to see two old boys behaving badly as long as it doesn't descend (apologies to any fans!) into Last of the Summer Wine.

This is a little like complaining that it's too hot.. then it's too cold but never just right. This is great news. Very glad that there will be some fun stories with the mature gang. I notice it says "cameo", so we know it won't last long and I always enjoy the lighter side of Corrie. Looking forward to it!

Rita's going to go off on Denis as per. She enjoys having him under her thumb. He can't even spend a little bit of money without her having a hairy fit but can throw loads of dosh at Tina for whatever she fancies! I hope he bogs off for awhile - would serve her right - the old battle axe she's becoming.
