    Nigel Havers signs up for Corrie as love interest for Audrey

    Veteran actor Nigel Havers has joined the cast of Coronation Street.

    The 59-year-old, who is best known for his role as Lord Andrew Lindsay in 1981 movie Chariots Of Fire, is to appear as a possible new love interest for hair salon owner Audrey Roberts (Sue Nicholls).

    Audrey first meets Havers's character Lewis when she attends a ball with Norris Cole (Malcolm Hebden) in the run-up to Christmas. She is immediately bowled over by his charming ways, but feels frustrated because he is accompanying her old friend Claudia, played by one-off guest Rula Lenska.

    However, the night out takes a twist when Claudia reveals that Lewis is a gentleman escort who charges women for his company at social events. There is no suggestion that the show newcomer is anything more than a party companion for his clients.

    Instantly interested in the idea, Audrey hires Lewis to be on her arm at her next engagement, but ends up developing stronger feelings for him than she anticipated.

    A Coronation Street spokesperson confirmed to DS today that Havers will be seen on screen for the first time on December 18. He will remain with the Weatherfield soap until well into 2010.

    As well as Chariots Of Fire, Havers has appeared in movies A Passage To India and Empire Of The Sun. He has also had TV roles in '80s sitcom Don't Wait Up and US drama Brothers & Sisters.

    I hardly think 59 yr old would qualify as being a toy boy

    Graeme is meant to get a girlfriend, somebody quite unexpected, so you might be right

    From watching re-runs of Don't Wait Up within the last year, he was a bit of alright . Not quite so handsome to me these days, but still, looking forward to seeing him in Corrie.
