Coronation Street’s Malcolm Hebden is ‘great and really healthy’ as he returns to the cobbles after heart attack

CORONATION Street star Malcolm Cole is “great and really healthy” ahead of his return to the cobbles.
The actor – who plays Norris Cole in the ITV soap – was forced to take a break after suffering a heart attack last year, but now his co-star Dolly-Rose Campbell has revealed he is back to his best and will soon be back.

She told the Daily Star: “He looks great. He is looking really healthy. He’s really well.”
He recently told how his life was saved by the surgery he had, adding: “Fortunately I didn’t realise how bad it was. I was dying.”
The actor is expected to reprise his role of Norris for a limited time in May.
Norris was briefly mentioned on the show last week when he sent word to Rita Tanner of his intentions to sell The Kabin to fund his travels with Emily Bishop.

Rita loses her temper at Brian and Cathy this week
And Rita – who is played by Barbara Knox in the ITV soap – sadly confirmed she won’t be in the running to buy the shop as it would break Maria Connor’s heart if she were to ask for the money she invested in her salon back.
With Rita officially out of the running, Brian Packham is given food for thought and makes an offer behind Rita’s back, which will not go well later this week.
As an excited Brian and Cathy head over to tell Rita the good news, they’re floored to find a furious Rita ranting and raving about Norris selling the shop from under her, unaware they’re the potential new owners.
When they manage to tell Rita that they’re the ones buying the shop, Rita is incensed.

The actress joined the show in 2016 as a runaway fleeing evil abuser Nathan Curtis who later targeted Bethany Platt. She was also revealed as the mother of Kylie Platt’s killer Clayton Hibbs.
As well as Julia, three other members of the Platt family have landed deals with Julia’s on-screen partner Jack P. Shepherd signing a bumper new pay deal and Lucy Fallon and Tina O’Brien being offered new deals.

Hollyoaks’ Bob Cryer reveals Liam Donovan will take revenge on the WAGs after they murdered gangster dad Glenn

GLENN Donovan’s murder is going to kick off a huge whodunit storyline for the soap with “huge” repercussions.
Actor Bob Cryer – who played the serial killing gangster in the Channel 4 soap – has revealed that while Glenn is definitely dead after the WAGs poisoned him, he may yet still get revenge from beyond the grave.
Getty – Contributor Actor Bob Cryer has revealed Glenn’s death will have a huge fallout for his son[/caption]
Viewers watched last night’s first look episode as the WAGs finally took action and all poisoned Glenn at his own birthday party but with Hollyoaks seeing a host of dead characters return, the actor has insisted Glenn is gone.
“There’s going to be a huge fallout,” he said in an exclusive interview with The Sun Online.
“That’s the risk they’re taking for wrongful arrest and conviction and they’ve all put themselves in that position. It’s very possible that one of them could take the rap for someone else.”
Fans saw Grace, Simone, Courtney, Maxine and Kim all pour a vial into Glenn’s pint, with the poison in one of them, during his birthday party, and they thought they had got away with it, until the closing moments of the episode when Liam noticed one of the vials near his dad’s body.
Glenn downed the poisoned pint without even realising it
The gangster finally pushed his victims too far and they retaliated by killing him
But even Bob doesn’t know who ultimately killed Glenn and who Liam will be gunning for revenge against.
He said: “Even I don’t know, there is a poisoned pint and they all have motive and they all have opportunity.”
And Bob hinted that it could even have been someone else, saying: “He’s pretty much pissed off everyone in the village.”
He added that he would love for it to have been ultimately Grace to have done the deed, saying: “Grace because I’ve got such love and respect for Tamara. It would be the perfect way to cap her comeback, short of being in black bike leathers flipping the bird to Glenn.”
He collapsed outside as his sons watched on helpless
The Women Against Glenn watched on as he took his final breath
The WAGs are finally free but Bob revealed there is a huge fallout after their crime
And he felt very strongly about Glenn dying as a coward rather than in an explosive event like next week’s storm week.
He added: “There’s the storm coming up and there was talk at one point of Glenn being part of that but it was always my view that that would be far too heroic and romantic a way to go.
“And actually what a b****** like Glenn deserves is to go in a very offbeat way by having his pint poisoned. And what a token male symbol and he had to down it in one too. It’s reflective of Glenn too – he thinks he’s in control.
“It was only a matter of time and that clock was really ticking from the moment he arrived in the village.
“The fact he’d already spoken to Grace about fleeing to Spain and he’d made up his mind that he wanted to go. Being who he is he wanted it to be on his terms and that’s the great moment that at the last moment it’s not his decision at all and he goes in a very un-heroic way. It’s a fitting end to him, for me anyway.”
But with Liam discovering one of the vials and beginning to suspect Kim, he will seek revenge for his father, but may discover more than he bargained for in the process.
At the end of the episode Liam realised his father had been murdered
He discovered the missing vial in a plant pot and remembered Kim’s actions
Bob added: “It’s so brilliant for his first instance that he’s killed someone before stepping foot in the village.
“He’s definitely a chip off the old block and that’s what Glenn wanted with Adam. He’ll be taking over the family business before the funeral has even started.”
But Bob also teased that Liam would eventually discover the truth about his evil father because the “truth always comes out.”
And filming intensively on a soap hasn’t put Bob off appearing in another one.
He said: “I’ve only got Emmerdale and Casualty to go to collect the full set but I’d have to have a long conversation with my family before I agreed to anything.”
But before he can even think of going into one of the other shows, he will be recording a two-part adaptation of a book he co-wrote with his father, comedy writer Barry Cryer.

We’re recording it in two weeks time for the December 4 and the 11th.”
And he’s not ruled out a Hollyoaks comeback just yet, it is afterall Hollyoaks.
“Is he dead? Well I haven’t booked a train ticket back yet,” Bob said.
He added: “There’s always the chance he could return but I think it would be beyond Glenn to stage a comeback, but you never know.”
