The family comprises husband Eddie (Steve Huison) and wife Donna (Debbie Rush), their son Carl (Mikey North) and Eddie's brother, Len (Conor Ryan - not to be confused with Ryan Connor!). Their names, however, may change before they appear on screen - you wouldn't believe the number of name changes there have been since their inception!
Apparently, David Platt (Jack P. Shepherd) will finally meet his match in Eddie Windass in a storyline which airs at the back end (no pun intended) of this year. And let's not forget there will be a vacant property on the Street at the end of the year when the last of the Mortons moves out...
Meanwhile, David's cellmate Graeme Proctor (Craig Gazey, pictured left) will make a return to our screens in November when he's released from the Young Offenders' Institute.
However, there's no sign of Archie Shuttleworth (Roy Hudd) again. He wasn't even there for Vera's funeral. Maybe he's gone out of business? Mind you, is it possible for an undertaker to go out of business?
That rounds up my Coronation Street cast update. To digest this information properly, why don't you pop across to the Soap Movers Table to see all of Corrie's movers and shakers?
