    Exclamation Evelyn Plummer (Maureen Lipman)




    Tyrone and Fiz are set to have their lives turned "upside down"


    Tyrone Dobbs has got an interesting time ahead of him, as Maureen Lipman is set to join the cast of Coronation Street as his grandmother.

    It was confirmed today (August 3) that the popular actress will be joining the Corrie family as the "outspoken battleaxe" Evelyn Plummer.

    Evelyn is set to make her entrance on the cobbles after Tyrone decides to research his family history following the recent shock death of his mum Jackie.

    Getting more than he and Fiz Stape bargained for, Tyrone will soon be welcoming his grandmother into number 9 – and it sounds like Evelyn will waste no time in making herself comfortable. And a bit of a nuisance.

    Corrie's producer Iain MacLeod said that he was "beyond thrilled" to be introducing the new character. "Evelyn is eye-wateringly withering and will add a fresh dollop of northern humour to the show as she turns Tyrone and Fiz's lives upside down," he teased.

    Eagle-eyed fans may have already spotted as much, but Evelyn Plummer isn't Maureen's first role on Coronation Street, as the actress made a brief appearance as landlady Lillian Spencer in 2002.

    Lipman has had an illustrious career, starring in the likes of Roman Polanski's The Pianist, Educating Rita and Oklahoma. She has also trodden the boards in more than 25 West End productions and appeared on the small screen in the likes of Doctor Who, Casualty and Holby City, so fans are in for a right treat with Evelyn.

    Maureen Lipman will make her first appearance on the cobbles this September.

    Coronation Street newcomer Maureen Lipman has revealed that her battleaxe alter ego Evelyn will be at the centre of Fiz Brown’s upcoming leaving storyline – as Tyrone’s acid tongued granny will drive her away! Evelyn is a force to be reckoned with when Tyrone and Fiz meet her but when Tyrone finds out she is being evicted, he insists that she comes to stay – something which doesn’t go down too well with Fiz. And soon it will become too much for her to cope with. Maureen warned: ‘Fiz doesn’t stand a chance no one was ever going to be good enough for Tyrone, not that she thinks he is good enough either but she has a grudging liking for this boy and she thinks that the woman he is with is boring. She sets out to drive her away just by being ungracious and critical and generally driving a wedge between them which is a horrible thing to do but there are people like that’

    Would Fiz and Hope not just move back in with Chesney?

    Coronation Street star Maureen Lipman teases Fiz Stape's exit as Evelyn Plummer gets nastier

    Coronation Street newcomer Maureen Lipman has dropped some new hints on Fiz Stape's exit storyline.

    Jennie McAlpine, who plays Fiz, has now gone on maternity leave to welcome the arrival of her second child and her departure scenes will air in a few weeks' time.

    Show bosses recently brought in Maureen as Tyrone Dobbs's outspoken grandmother Evelyn Plummer, who's already causing tensions on the cobbles.

    Over the next few weeks, Evelyn will step up her attempts to cause major problems between Tyrone and Fiz, threatening their relationship.

    Maureen told TV Times: "Fiz doesn't stand a chance. Evelyn has a grudging liking for Tyrone, and she thinks Fiz is boring.

    "She sets out to drive her away by being critical and ungracious, and generally driving a wedge between them."

    One of Evelyn's sneaky moves includes stealing some of Fiz and Tyrone's belongings for herself at Number 9 – but could she just be getting started with her outrageous behaviour?

    Speaking to What's On TV earlier this year, Maureen confirmed: "Evelyn and Fiz are definitely going to clash. Fiz's departure from the Street will involve Evelyn, her boorish behaviour will definitely be what drives her out."

    Jennie and her husband Chris Farr are already parents to 3-year-old son Albert, who was born in November 2014.

    How would Tyrone choose Evelyn over Fiz and the kids, I mean does Fiz take the kids with her?
