Coronation Street star Oliver Mellor has revealed that he would like to explore a darker side to his character Matt Carter.

Weatherfield doctor Matt was originally introduced as part of Natasha Blakeman's exit storyline last summer, and he has since been involved in the soap's tram crash disaster and John Stape saga.

Coronation Street sources have recently tipped Matt to play a bigger role on screen in the coming weeks as he gets a storyline of his own.

Speaking to Soaplife, Mellor confirmed: "Hopefully he's going to get one. They're putting it together now and I'm hoping I'll get the chance to show that Matt's not Mr Perfect and has a bit of a dark side."

"I'd like him to have a love interest," he continued. "There are a few possibilities. I mean, the Coronation Street women aren't exactly spoilt for choice when it comes to fit men, are they?"

Last week, it was reported that Matt will embark on a relationship with Tina McIntyre later this year following her recent split from Graeme Proctor.

Insiders also suggested that Matt's union with Tina (Michelle Keegan) later comes under threat when it becomes clear that the doctor has some "skeletons" in his closet.
