'Coronation Street's Lloyd Mullaney (Craig Charles) will have an explosive reaction when he discovers he has a daughter he didn't know about
'Coronation Street's Lloyd Mullaney (Craig Charles) will discover he has a daughter in a future storyline.
Bosses on the ITV soap are currently looking to cast a woman to play his ex-girlfriend, who arrives on 'Corrie' with a child, causing Lloyd to explode into a fit of rage when he finds out it is his own.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Lloyd hasn't been in touch with this woman for a while and then she waltzes in and announces that he has a daughter.
"The news will knock Lloyd for six. His reaction will be pretty explosive."
Craig left the soap for six months last December so he could film a new series of sci-fi show 'Red Dwarf', but was seen back on screens last week.
He is also believed to be shown in a business battle with former boss Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) when he opens up his own taxi firm.
A source said: "There were all kinds of rumours flying around that Craig wasn't coming back at all.
"But it seems he is back with bang. Craig is well liked by the production crew and has some great banter with them, so he has been missed. It's a relief and a joy that he is back."
