Coronation Street – an Elton John inspired storyline?

Corrie’s Sean to gain custody of his son

Coronation Street favourite Sean Tully is set to ‘do an Elton’ and bring up his long lost son with boyfriend Marcus Dent.


Sean, played by Antony Cotton, is dad to Dylan, who he fathered as a sperm donor with friend Violet Wilson when she had fertility problems. Violet then fled the Street with her son and moved to London. But Sean’s hands on dad dream is soon set to come true.

“There’s a chance older viewers will be shocked by the storyline, so we will handle things very sensitively,” said a Street source.


Dylan is said to be played by 4-year-old twins Connor and Liam McCheyne.
