James Burrows on becoming a dad - and playing new roles

James Burrows, who plays Ali Neeson on Coronation Street, is on the front of this week's OK Magazine with his girlfriend Sophie Coates, who's expecting their first child.  The couple are planning to get wed soon too.

The actor also says that he would "like to try more roles" which is completely understandable. Not everyone wants to stay at Coronation Street for a very long time. And as an actor, I'd have thought it absolutely normal to want to stretch yourself and act in a variety of roles.

Whether this means we'll be seeing the last of James on Corrie any time soon, I don't know.  But with Kym Marsh leaving the show on an extended break from her role as Michelle Connor, who knows if her son Dr. Ali might go with his mum?

He is in the film 'Fighting with my Family'. His role is pretty small, but it's a great film!
