    Coronation Street stars Connor McIntyre and Les Dennis are to be reunited on stage – although this time, they’re going to be friends! While Connor’s character Pat Phelan stood and watched Michael Rodwell die in the soap, the pair are teaming up on stage – as Cinderella’s ugly sisters in an upcoming panto.

    Yep, you heard us. Phelan and Michael. In drag. In panto. As friends. Larking about. And you can be in the audience. Take our money now, lads and lasses, we are bloody well THERE.

    Les and Connor will tread the boards this Christmas and tickets are already on sale, with the Manchester Opera House the venue for the show.

    The announcement comes as Connor’s on screen exit as Phelan approaches – and it will be far less panto and much more Die Hard as he prepares to take a killer revenge against Eileen and Nicola, with Michelle Connor being caught in the crossfire and shot on her wedding day.

    After five years of playing villainous Phelan on and off, it will be great for Phelan to access a more comedic role. The star, who is also a keen artist, recently told ‘I am a working actor and like everyone who is self employed, I am always very grateful to work.

    ‘I will leave Corrie with a tinge of sadness but a huge wave of gratitude for the opportunities that I have been given here. We will see what happens and I take nothing for granted about whether this springboards to anything.’

    From springboards to stage boards, we have a great Phelan about this panto…
