Who is Sean’s new man in Coronation Street?

Unlucky-in-love Sean is still stinging following his last relationship with bully Frank.

But he instantly hit it off with Laurence last week when Sean was helping at Mr Pugh’s funeral and Laurence was one of the guests.

They found they had lots in common.

But dentist Laurence disappeared into the distance and Sean thought he’d never see him again.

However, Glenda could tell he was pining. She offered to track Laurence down.

After initially having no luck, Sean decided it was pointless.

Little did he know, Laurence is trying to find him too and tonight (Wednesday August 10) is spotted hanging around outside the undertakers.

George manages to secure a date for Sean.

Even though Glenda and Mary are beside themselves with excitement, Sean gets cold feet and decides not to go.  He insists he’s swearing off men altogether and it’s time to put Dylan first.

In fact, it’s Dylan who changes his dad’s mind, however, when he orders Sean to go on the date.

A suited and booted Sean turns up and he and Laurence get on famously.

So is it love at last for the Rovers barman?

Or will this guy turn out to be a bad egg just like all the rest?

What else has Robert Shaw Cameron been in?

Robert has been in numerous other TV shows – including a previous stint in Corrie!

He played a police officer back in 2011 who was involved in a storyline involving Tina McIntyre and Tommy Duckworth.

Rita Tanner‘s car was being towed and the officer refused to help do anything about it as the vehicle was illegally parked. He threatened to take angry Tina to the police station to carry on the conversation there and she relented and paid the fine.

Robert has also been in The Bill, Ghosts, The Basil Brush Show, Heartbeat, Where The Heart Is, Keen Eddie and Holby City.

His first TV role was in EastEnders: Ricky and Bianca, a spin off from the main soap. The action focused on show legends Ricky and Bianca reuniting in Manchester before she dumped him and left.

It was during these episode she conceived their daughter Tiffany.

Laurence played the part of Gerry, who Bianca owed money to.
