There's another familiar face from soapland heading to The Mill surgery as a former Coronation Street star Sean Ward joins the cast of Doctors...
Soap fans were left thrilled when former soap star Ali Bastian joined the cast of daytime soap Doctors – and now it has been revealed her on-screen boyfriend will be played by none other that former Coronation Street favourite, Sean Ward.
Ali, who is better known to soap fans as Hollyoaks Becca Dean, arrived at The Mill as the new Practice Manager, Becky Clarke, to replace the legendary Mrs Tembe earlier this month.
But she is soon set to be joined by her boyfriend, Tam Campbell.
The pair have been spending plenty of time apart thanks to Becky’s new job – but they’re set to be reunited when Sean Ward, who played Weatherfield baddie Callum Logan, arrives on screen on 20th March.
But the couple’s reunion won’t be as smooth-sailing as they’d hoped when they hit a few obstacles as they try and settle into life in a new area.
Soap fans will remember that Sean’s Coronation Street character, Callum, was the father of both Kylie Platt’s son Max as well as Sarah Platt’s son Harry.
He was part of a huge storyline in September 2015 which saw him killed and buried under the concrete in the Platts’ granny annex which was under construction at the time.
Callum’s grisly death came after months of him terrorising Sarah and her family, demanding cash in return for giving up his rights to son Max.
During a special live episode of the soap, Callum was seen threatening Sarah and, as he turned violent, it was up to her sister-in-law Kylie to come to her rescue.
As Kylie hit Callum over the head with a wrench, she ended up killing him, leaving her, Sarah and David living with the knowledge there was a dead body decomposing under their feet in the house extension.
The body was later found when Tyrone Dobbs crashed his truck through the front of the Platts’ newly-built annex.
