    Brendan (Ted Robbins)

    Phoenix Nights star Ted Robbins has joined the cast of Coronation Street.

    Producer Stuart Blackburn told journalists today (August 11) that Robbins will play a long-desired love interest for Mary.



    "We've got romance and comedy coming up for Mary," Blackburn said.

    "That's for the first time in a long, long time. She's going to meet someone and fall in love."

    He continued: "We all know how completely passionate she is - she'll fall in love times 100. Unfortunately it's with a ne'er do well called Brendan.

    "Fortunately for us, he's going to be played by the brilliant Ted Robbins, who starts today.

    "He did a fantastic audition. He's absolutely Corrie through and through, so we're looking forward to that."

    Robbins, who played nefarious club owner Den Perry in Phoenix Nights, won't be the first star from the Channel 4 sitcom to join Coronation Street.

    Paddy McGuiness recently being cast as wilderness enthusiast Dougie Ryan.

    Peter Kay also had a cameo in the late 1990s and a more significant role opposite his friend Sally Lindsay, who plays Shelley Unwin, in January 2004.

    It would have been nice -if now that they
    have found Mary a love-interest - that
    it could have been someone nearer her
    own age!

    I suppose since she is a"mistress" that
    fits in with him being a lot older.

    I wasnt expecting a "hunk" thats probably
    against Corrie casting policy.Which is most
    likely that the female characters should be
    grateful.for what they are given!

    I donīt remember him in either role but they would have only been brief appearances
