TYRONE Dobbs’ formidable grandmother Evelyn Plummer arrives in Coronation Street next week after Roy Cropper tracks her down.
The mechanic, played by Alan Halsall, is feeling nervous as he heads to the address Roy gives him and is stunned when he meets Evelyn, and she refuses to accept that Tyrone might be her grandson.
He and girlfriend Fiz Stape, played by Jennie McAlpine, find holes in her story though and she eventually begins to open up.
Before long though, Evelyn makes out that Ty has outstayed his welcome and tells him to go.
Tyrone vows that he’ll make Evelyn face up to the fact that she’s his grandmother whether she likes it or not.
Later in the week a housing officer calls round to see Tyrone after finding his address on a scrap of paper at Evelyn’s house.
She reveals that the pensioner is being evicted and has nowhere to go. Tyrone asks his newly discovered grandmother if she’d like to move in with him and Fiz but she’s scathing about the idea.
She changes her mind though and decides to take Tyrone up on his offer, but makes it clear that she and her dog Cerberus won’t be staying.
But after trying to rip Dev Alahan off in the shop Tyrone finds Evelyn in the Rovers Return.
Could she be sticking around on the street after all?
She appeared in the ITV soap back in 2002 when she starred as snooty landlady Lillian Spencer.
Iain MacLeod, producer of the ITV soap, said: “I am beyond thrilled that we’re introducing such a great new character, played by someone of Maureen’s pedigree.
