It’s finally time for Take Me Out’s Paddy McGuinness to grace the cobbles of Corrie.
Coronation Street fans have been able to get their first look at Paddy McGuinness’s upcoming guest stint in the show’s latest trailer.
The comedian will be appearing as a wilderness survival enthusiast for one week, who crosses paths with a number of the regulars on their trip.
McGuinness’ character, Dougie Ryan, appears when Beth, Kirk, Craig, Chesney, Sinead, Tyrone and Fiz all head out of Weatherfield to visit a camp site in Wales… you know, just the normal soap storyline!
Whilst Dougie’s expertise initially comes in handy for the gang as they get settled in, it’s not long before his overbearing ways start to rub some of them up the wrong way.
Dougie also has a teenage daughter called Caitlin, who will grow close to Craig in a romance storyline…
Coronation Street will air these scenes during its camping storyline on Monday, August 17 at 7.30pm on ITV.
