Daniel Brocklebank takes in Colin, a rescue puppy


Coronation Street's Daniel Brocklebank, who plays Billy the vicar Mayhew, has taken in a rescue puppy.

Daniel helped save dachshund Colin from a smuggling ring. Now he is ­thriving after a traumatic start to life.

Daniel said: “He was in an awful ­condition so I’ve taken him on and given him his forever home. I had been thinking about getting a dog for quite a while but it’s a huge commitment so I wanted to wait for the right time. I had moved house, I have some time off work and everything just fell into place. I knew I wanted to adopt a rescue dog and it was love at first sight. He has settled in wonderfully and his ­confidence is growing by the day.”

Daniel even brings his new pet on set – and he says Colin is so small he ­happily curls up and sleeps anywhere.

“He loves to play and he loves ­heading out and meeting lots of dogs and ­people,” he added. “He attracts a lot of ­attention. He’s a joy.”

Carol Margieson, deputy manager at Dogs Trust Manchester, was caring for Colin before Daniel stepped in. She said: “Colin and his siblings had a tough start in life and it is fantastic that they’ve gone on to brilliant homes. If, like Daniel, you are ready to welcome a dog into your life, please consider adopting a rescue dog. All our dogs, young and old, deserve a second chance at happiness.”
