Coronation Street star Craig Charles has hinted that his character Lloyd Mullaney will live to regret welcoming Chris Gray into his home in a forthcoming storyline.

Lloyd makes the shock decision later this week while under pressure from his girlfriend Cheryl (Holly Quin-Ankrah), who is keen to support her ex after learning that he is suffering from a brain tumour.

Although Chris is initially sceptical, he soon takes up the opportunity because he wants to be closer to his former partner and their son Russ during his time of need.

Charles told Coronation Street's official website of his alter ego's surprise gesture: "Lloyd's right in the middle - he can't be seen to be this horrible man. He's trying to get Cheryl to love and respect him, and yet he can't stand the fella. He's caught right in the middle."

He continued: "Lloyd's moved into Number 13, Coronation Street. 13 doesn't look like it's going to be a lucky number for Lloyd, I tell you!"

Meanwhile, Will Thorp - who plays Chris - confirmed that the builder's illness will spark changes for his relationship with Cheryl.

"Chris's relationship with Cheryl naturally develops and they do start to become closer again," Thorp explained. "She's just by his side and kind of being his best friend. And Chris, out of everyone, is very happy for Cheryl to take that place in his life."

Back in May, unconfirmed reports suggested that Chris, Cheryl and Russ will all depart the street together later this year, leaving Lloyd heartbroken.
