Jacob Hay in Coronation Street: Who plays him and what else has the actor been in?

Jacob Hay is played by actor Jack James Ryan and Corrie isn’t the first soap he’s appeared in.

In 2019 he played a character called Tyler in an episode of Emmerdale. The same year he played Matt Davies in an episode of Casualty.

Thank you so much for all the love over tonight’s @BBCCasualty Without doubt the best job I’ve worked on, with the loveliest cast and crew.

Not sure what you lot think but I think Matt isn’t right for prison. I think he’d make a great student nurse 🤷🏻‍♂️ #Casualty #BringBackMatt pic.twitter.com/pjDd0biwu8

What’s next for Jacob and Simon?

Earlier this month it was announced that Will Mellor will be joining the cast of Coronation Street as evil drug lord Harvey, who is Jacob’s boss.

It was revealed Leanne will find out about Simon’s involvement in the drug gang and she will battle to save him from the gang.

Her fierce maternal instinct to protect Simon is what throws her into the orbit of drugs lord Harvey.

Harvey is Jacob’s ‘boss.’ After Jacob lures a vulnerable Simon into his trap, it’s Harvey who takes over to pile on the pressure.

But he threatens Simon when he wants out.

Coronation Street airs on Mondays and Wednesdays 7.30pm and 8.30pm with an hour long episode at 7.30 on Fridays on ITV.
