Coronation Street fans have been told the residents of Weatherfield will have to deal with a shock new arrival later this year.

Warning: spoiler alert!

The Sun reports that Faye Windass' (Ellie Leach) birth father, who is homeless, will arrive on the Street.

It is reported that the new role is currently being cast.

A source told the paper: "The arrival of Faye's real dad will come as a shock to everyone.

"She doesn't come from a nice background and he will be a bit rough around the edges to say the least.

"It is strikingly obvious to Faye's family that he is from the wrong side of the track. They are in for a lot of heartache."
