Paddy McGuinness joins Coronation Street in guest role

Comedy actor Paddy McGuinness will join Coronation Street in a guest role for six weeks this summer.

Paddy will turn up in Corrie as wilderness survival enthusiast Dougie Ryan who meets up with the Tinkers and Dobbs on a camping holiday.
It isn’t long before Dougie is putting Kirk, Beth, Craig, Chesney, Sinead, Tyrone and Fiz through their paces with hilarious consequence, as he shames the boys with his expertise in all things outdoors.

Dougie will be on holiday with his teenage daughter Caitlin who strikes up an unlikely friendship with loveable Craig Tinker.

Paddy said:“Being asked to appear in Coronation Street was a very special moment for me. I remember Peter (Kay) telling me how much he enjoyed his guest spot on the show (as Eric Gartside, the brewery drayman) and I can't wait to get started. It's an iconic and much loved show, not just in the UK but around the world. The character I'll be playing is very funny and I'm sure the Corrie fans will love him.”

This could be good. Frosty likes Paddy and he certainly has the accent for Corrie. No likey no lighty.

I think that might just be six episodes, especially if he's meeting them on holiday. Sounds like it could be a nice light and fun story. Excellent for Craig to get a short term love interest!
