Coronation Street casts Marc Baylis over Jamie Lomas to play Carla Connor’s brother Rob, and cast a new Ryan Connor, Sol Heras!

There have been rumours flying round for months that Coronation Street were looking to cast a new hunk for the street as they introduced Carla Connor’s (Alison King) brother, with the name linked to the job on most people’s lips being that of Kym Marsh‘s (who plays Michelle Connor) fiancée, Jamie Lomas.

Lomas even auditioned for the part and, at the time, a source close to the couple commented that they were excited at the thought of working with each other, but it would seem that he didnt fit the bill,  or perhaps Marsh just changed her mind after the recent allegations that Lomas had been cheating on her, as it has now been announced that Marc Baylis has been cast to play the devilishly handsome bad boy, Rob Donovan.

EastEnders spoiler: Lucy tells Ian on wedding day, “it’s Mandy or me”

With Ian Beale’s gazillionth wedding coming up, no one could possibly expect it to go according to plan, after all it is Ian, and it is EastEnders.

But while the world sits and waits for his wife-to-be, Mandy, to come to her senses in the nick of time and stand him up at the altar, or for her to rob him blind as soon as he says I do, viewers will be shocked to see that this wedding is brought down by someone else entirely!

Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) has never has a great relationship with any of his kids, and when Lucy (Hetti Bywater) returned to Albert Square recently she made it very clear that she was not about to accept his new wife anytime soon.

So, when the big day arrives, Lucy – who has actually started to show a softer, more caring side recently, even towards Mandy (Nicola Stapleton), is set to ruin her dads wedding when she issues him with a severe ultimatum: “It’s me or Mandy. You decide.”

The wedding is fraught with problems from the start.  It is already the couples third attempt to get down the aisle, and with Ian keeping the fact that he is serious financial trouble from his fiancée, and having just discovered that his brother Ben (Joshau Pascoe) was the person responsible for the harpooning of Heather Trott, this final nail is too much for the chip shop owner to take.

In a bid to block out all his worries he gives Mandy a huge wad of cash to go and buy a new dress, and enlists the best man services of Max Branning (what will Alfie say?), but as quick as plans are being arranged, Lucy is secretly undoing them, including cancelling the registry office and throwing away the rings, in a bid to stop her dad from making, what she believes will be the biggest mistake of his life.

Unfortunately for her, her dad manages to fix everything so the wedding is back on track, forcing her to make the ultimatum on the morning of the wedding.

An EastEnders insider said: “By the morning of Ian and Mandy’s wedding Lucy has done everything she can to stop it happening.

“The only thing she has left to do is plead with her dad to come to his senses. When he refuses she tells him he must choose.

“It’s either Mandy or her and she means it.

“She tells him she will walk out of his life forever if he goes through with the wedding.”

Viewers can watch the drama unfold on May 24th.

Watch another of Ian’s far-from successful weddings below:

EastEnders can be seen Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings on BBC1 / BBC1 HD.

Hollyoaks spoiler: The McQueens get raided and Bart goes on the run!

For the last few weeks, Bart (Jonny Clark) has been hiding the stash of the class B drug in his attic, trying desperately not to be caught by his aunt Myra (Nicole Barber-Lane), enlisting the help of his friends and girlfriend to help conceal and lie for him, but if he thought she was going to be angry just finding out what he was up to, he certainly wont want to see how angry she gets when she is arrested for it!

Corrie star Chris Fountain says Tommy is STILL prepared to forgive dad Terry!

In last night’s trip to Weatherfield, we saw wicked Terry Duckworth – who’s played villainously well by Nigel Pivaro – pretending to his son Tommy that he had nothing to do with Tina McIntyre ending up in a coma…

But of course, he did, as she fell and hit her head during a scuffle with him. And he was just about to do a runner when Tommy turned up, prompting the ever resourceful Terry to immediately switch gears and claim he was looking for Tommy because he’d found Tina (Michelle Keegan) unconscious.

Then as if all that wasn’t evil enough, while Tommy anxiously awaited news on Tina’s condition in hospital, Terry lied that he’d had a text from loan shark Rick Whelan (Greg Wood) saying that Tommy would be “next.”

Terry then talked Tommy into going to “T’rone” (Alan Halsall) to ask for the £9k Terry owes Rick… Read more & comment »
