Irish actor Simon Delaney made his debut on Coronation Street on Friday and viewers were beyond delighted.
The Dublin star made a splash as the mysterious and effortlessly charming jewellery salesman Phil who arrives into the factory to sell his wares.
Phil reappeared later in the episode when he popped up in the Rovers for a drink.
Fans of the ITV soap welcomed the light relief Delaney brought to the show, especially in light of the dark grooming storyline involving Bethany Platt and Nathan Curtis which has been going on for the past few weeks.
It wasn't just the viewers who loved Delaney, however, as some of Delaney's Corrie co-stars took to Twitter to compliment him.
The Dublin actor was a big hit with viewers at home, with people tweeting that he was "a natural", "fits in so well" and "a great addition" to the soap.
Many fans begged Coronation Street bosses to include his character in more episodes.

Delaney previously tweeted that he had "some craic" filming the scenes on Coronation Street, so here's hoping Phil will become a recurring role for the Dublin star.
