    Exclamation Geoff Metcalfe

    Audrey gets a new man next week in Coronation Street. He'll be introduced to the show as a hospital radio DJ who Audrey meets while she's there recovering from an accident.



    Audrey's new fella will be called Geoff Metcalfe and he's played by actor Ian Bartholemew.

    Ian Bartholemew starred on stage in my favourite musical, Half a Sixpence, where he played the role of Chitterlow. He's done a great deal of theatre and stage work in his time, everything from Shakespeare to Nol Coward to Guys and Dolls.

    His film work includes: Eisenstein, Shiner, Half a Shave, Max and Helen, A Prayer for the Dying, Little Dorrit, Esther Khan and Denial.

    And on TV you may have seen him in New Blood, Maigret, The Accused, Foyles War, Thieves Like Us, Spooks, Florence, Casualty, The Echo, Thacker, Perfect Scoundrels, Follow the Star, South Riding, Bergerac, Open Wide, DCI Banks, Empire, Without Motive, Wycliffe, Harry, The Blackheath Poisonings, The Darling Buds of May, The Comic Strip, The Good Companions, The Professionals and Minder.

    Ian was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Musical in 1991 for Into the Woods; Best Supporting Actor in a Musical in 1993 for Radio Times; and Best Actor in a Musical in 2016 for Mrs Henderson Presents. He won the Manchester Evening News Award for Best Supporting Actor as Doolittle in Pygmalion at the Royal Exchange in 2010.

    Quite a pedigree! We're looking forward to seeing him turn up in Corrie next week.

    I did not notice his surname before. I thought his dad was not so close by because they needed to get far away from phelan

    Coronation Street has officially confirmed the identity of newcomer Geoff Metcalfe.

    Geoff (Ian Bartholomew) is the father of Weatherfield regular Tim Metcalfe, as fans had already started to suspect after his debut this week.

    Friday's Corrie double bill (March 30) saw radio DJ Geoff cement his friendship with Audrey Roberts after they'd met at the local hospital.

    After Geoff accidentally got locked out of his own studio at the hospital, Audrey was forced to step in to keep his live radio show on track for the patients.

    Later on, Geoff was seen chatting with Sally and Faye at Number 4, where his identity as Tim's father was finally confirmed.

    Since Tim was pretty busy dealing with Eileen and Phelan's final showdown at the time, we haven't yet seen him interacting with his dad but we're sure to find out more about their dynamic in future episodes.

    Geoff made his first appearance on Corrie this week when he met Audrey and Rita while doing the rounds at the hospital.

    He introduced himself with the surname Metcalfe, sparking a couple of days of speculation among fans over how he could be related to Tim.
