Coronation Street's Tyrone Dobbs is left stunned when he learns he isn't named on his daughter's birth certificate after trying to end his abusive relationship
Coronation Street's Tyrone Dobbs is left stunned when he learns he isn't named on his daughter's birth certificate.
The lovable mechanic grows tired of being abused at the hands of girlfriend Kirsty Soames (Natalie Gumede) and decides to end their relationship, but is horrified when she drops a bombshell about little Ruby.
Alan Halsall, who plays Tyrone, said: "This is the worst thing that could possibly happen to hi,. Tyrone has just made the brave decision to end the relationship and this puts him firmly on the back foot.
"Tyrone now knows that he has no rights - that's Kirsty's insurance against him."
Worried Tyrone agrees to give their relationship another go, on the condition he becomes a stay-at-home-dad while Kirsty returns to work and gets help for her violent behaviour, but the new father isn't entirely happy with the scheme.
Alan added to Inside Soap magazine: "Tyrone's not too comfortable with this plan. But he's desperate to be happy and will do anything he can to ease the situation for all concerned.
"Tyrone is incredibly proud to be a father, so spending more time with his child is a bonus to him.
"Ideally he wouldn't want to quit work but feels forced into this decision."
