Vinny Ashford is making a shock return to Coronation Street. The dodgy builder – who is played by actor Ian Kelsey in the ITV soap – was last seen fleeing Weatherfield in November after taking the proceeds from the flat scam and leaving Pat Phelan to take all of the blame.
But now it seems like Phelan will finally have his chance for revenge when Vinny returns to the cobbles. Viewers reacted with shock on Friday as Phelan revealed he hadn’t killed Andy Carver but had been holding him captive in his basement, and now Vinny will become embroiled in the shock storyline.
A Corrie source said: “Phelan has been looking for Vinny ever since he ran off with all the money and he’s determined to get revenge. Pat’s life spiralled out of control after Vinny left with all the money they had both stolen so he blames him for everything bad that has happened since.” The source added: “Vinny’s return won’t be what viewers expect and it will give Phelan the chance to solve all his problems in one fell swoop.”
