Street gives Duffy a permanent role

By
Ciaran McCarthy will soon be back on the cobbles -- actor Keith Duffy, former singer with Irish boyband Boyzone, has been given a one-year contract with Coronation Street after receiving a warm reception from viewers with his character.

Ciaran made a brief stint on the show, where he succeeded in splitting up best pal Peter Barlow from Shelley Unwin. Peter soon realised his motives, however, and sent him packing.

Now he'll be back as part of a new storyline later this year, details of which are being kept secret.

"Its great to be back on the show," said Duffy. "I had the most fantastic time working with the cast earlier this year and am really looking forward to meeting up with them all again." Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
