Who is Coronation Streets’ new Ryan Connor? Everything you need to know about actor Ryan Prescott

You might recognise his face from Emmerdale...

In the long life of Coronation Street, we’ve already seen two actors play Michelle Connor’s son Ryan.

First there was Ben Thompson who arrived in 2006 and stuck around on the Cobbles for four years before disappearing. Then Sol Heras took on the character for a year-long stay in 2012 and 2013, before Ryan went off to be a DJ in Ibiza. During that stint, you’ll remember that Ryan was involved in a dark storyline in which he got Sophie Webster (Brooke Vincent) hooked on drugs.

Well, now Ryan is back and set to cause a stir once again. But this time he’s played by Ryan Prescott.

You might recognise Ryan already if you are an Emmerdale fan, as he played Aaron Dingle’s love interest.

On Monday (March 26), Ryan Prescott was on set at Coronation Street filming a dramatic showdown with Michelle’s soon-to-be husband Robert Preston (Tristan Gemmill).

Robert could be seen angrily shouting Ryan’s name as he came round to his house with Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard), clearly not wanting the latest drama with Ryan to mess up his wedding.

Any loyal fans will remember that Ryan was most recently name-checked on-air when Michelle received a message from him, assuring her that he wouldn’t miss her wedding for the world.

This, however, causes friction as it was revealed that Ryan was not actually her biological son. Her true biological son Ali (played by James Burrows, who spoke to us about his role) returned to the soap last month.

So it looks like Ryan is certainly going to cause a stir!

But it’s not just Emmerdale where you may have spied Mr Prescott.

He’s also stared in Holby City, Casualty, Doctors and Marshlands.
