Coronation Street’s Jacob in angry clash with his dad Damon

Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street has shared more details about the arrival of Jacob Hay’s estranged dad.

Show bosses have cast former Shameless actor Ciarán Griffiths as Damon Hay, who makes his first appearance on the cobbles this month.

Upcoming scenes see Jacob give his father short shrift when Damon unexpectedly approaches him in the street, explaining that he was passing through the area and wanted to say hello.

The following week, Damon optimistically invites Jacob out for a drink. Jacob isn’t interested and coldly turns him down, but his girlfriend Amy Barlow is surprised by his attitude.

Jacob defends his stance by explaining that he hasn’t heard from Damon for years and he’s a waste of space.

Amy thinks that Damon still deserves a second chance, so Jacob reluctantly meets up with him for a drink.

Damon is angry when Jacob explains how Harvey Gaskell lured him into the world of drug dealing – then put him in hospital when their alliance turned sour.

Jacob isn’t interested in Damon’s belated sympathy and continues to push him away, asking him to leave Weatherfield and not jeopardise the new life he has built for himself with Amy.

The reformed bad boy later complains to Amy about how Damon enjoyed a cushy life in Ibiza, while he was mixed up in gangs without any direction from his family.

Damon promises Jacob that he wants to make it up to him, but will it be that easy?

Speaking recently about his new role, Ciarán commented: “I’m happy to be back in Manchester to see my family and friends after being away in Australia for the last three years. The city has changed so much.

“And what better way to tie it in with a stint on the cobbles. I watched Corrie as a kid and it’s great to be back with some old friends both cast and crew. I’m loving having the opportunity to work with some quality Northern actors whose work I have long admired, particularly on such a complex character like Damon.”

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
