He also bumps into his ex Marcus, played by Charlie Condou as well as meeting up with Dylan’s mum Violet and her boyfriend Jamie, played by Jenny Platt and Rupert Hill.

But while Sean’s journey is throwing up some unexpected surprises, a few old faces make a return to Coronation Street.

Todd Grimshaw, played by Bruno Langley, arrvies after travelling north for the holiday to introduce his new rich boyfriend to his mum, Eileen.

Violet Wilson, Marcus Dent and Jamie Baldwin will also be making appearances in the episode.

A Coronation Street spokesperson said: “It will be a real treat for Corrie viewers to see Sean exploring the sights of London, while at the same time, Todd returns to Weatherfield to catch up with his mum.

“Sean is desperate to be a real dad to Dylan so when Violent says he can visit, he is thrilled but when he arrives in the capital he’s in for a few surprises.

“Meanwhile, back in Weatherfield, Todd has returned home for Easter, but how does he feel about Coronation Street now he has a rich boyfriend in tow and a glamorous life in London?

Filming on the special starts in the capital later this month.
