You would be forgiven for thinking that being nominated for no less than FOUR British Soap Awards would be enough to turn any actor’s head, but not so for Corrie star Alan Halsall – who of course plays Tyrone Dobbs – because all he can think about right now are his wife, the gorgeous Lucy-Jo Hudson, and the baby girl they’re expecting in August.
While speaking to the Daily Mirror about being nominated for four gongs – the ceremony airs on ITV on Sunday at 8pm – modest Alan said, “I’m not too comfortable with all that really. I have one standard smile which is like a big grin.
“To be honest, when I get there I just want to get in, get to the bar and have a pint.” Read more & comment »

Just when Tyrone Dobbs (Alan Halsall) thought he could relax and settle into life with his lover Fiz Stape (Jennie McAlpine) and baby Ruby – with whom Ty was reunited last week after his evil ex Kirsty Soames admitted she’d made up the allegation that Tyrone battered her – he has to face Kirsty at least once more next week when she summons him to visit her in prison…
