Antony Cotton has said that he is pleased Coronation Street is showing gay parenting in a positive light.

In the upcoming Easter plot, Cotton's character Sean Tully travels to London to see his son Dylan and reunites with former partner Marcus Dent (Charlie Condou), before moving to raise the 3-year-old together.

Speaking to New magazine, Cotton said: "It's two men pushing a buggy down a street - it's modern life. And if nothing else it will give people something to talk about.

"If there's one conversation about a young, gay man parenting in a positive way that's got to be a good thing."

The 35-year-old actor also rejected the idea that traditional viewers will be shocked by a same-sex family.

"It's a terribly old-fashioned view," he commented. "Gay people are the same as anybody else.

"As long as two people are happy and offer a child unconditional love, I don't see what the problem is." Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
