Tommy Orpington turns up in Corrie - find out all about him here

Next week on Coronation Street, Weatherfield County football player Tommy Orpington will tun up on the show. 

He hires Michelle as his wedding planner and she can't understand the fuss over Tommy that the lads are making. They're fan-struck, of course and it could be a good few scenes as they fawn over the footballer.

Tommy will be played by actor Matt Milburn. Matt played vet Nicky Pritchard in Emmerdale and starred in Heartbeat on Tour. He also played Joe Spencer in Hollyoaks. And he does a bit of modelling too.

He's the second ex-Emmerdale actor who's been signed up for the show since ex-Emmerdale Producer Kate Oates has taken over.   She brought in Paul Loughran (Butch Dingle) as Craig's dad Darryl. I do hope she signs up Charlie Hardwick (Val Pollard) asap too!

If I recall, I don't think we've met many other Weatherfield County players in Corrie before, have we? There was Wayne Farrell, Weatherfield County star striker who dated Raquel Wolstenhulme.  And Warren Baldwin played for County too, didn't he?
