Coronation Street star Charlie Condou has promised that his alter ego Marcus Dent will become a more prominent character on the show this year.

The actor returned to the role of Marcus last year and recently signed a new contract which will keep him on the cobbles until at least March 2013.

Condou appeared on Lorraine this morning and revealed that Coronation Street bosses have big plans for Marcus.

Asked whether fans will see more of him, he replied: "Yes, I think so. Obviously I can't say too much, but I think I've got a big year coming up. That's what I've been promised - so a lot of big storylines for Marcus."

Discussing Marcus's personality, he continued: "I think he's one of life's carers really, isn't he? That's his job obviously, but he's somebody who likes to make sure that everyone's alright - and I really like that about him."

Condou also expressed his delight over Coronation Street's recent triumph in the 'Serial Drama' category at the National Television Awards.

"It was really good, and we were actually genuinely surprised," he said. "It got to the point where we thought, 'Oh, EastEnders will probably get it again' - I was so over the moon for [the producers], because they deserve it so much."

Condou's original stint in Weatherfield ran for a year from September 2007 to September 2008.
