Jimi Mistry.jpgFormer EastEnders star Jimi Mistry is to join Corrie as an ex-soldier, ITV bosses have revealed. He will be playing Khalid, a personal trainer and friend of Gary Windass.

Show bosses teased that the character will "set tongues wagging and pulses racing" and is "likely to upset a few of the menfolk of Weatherfield."

He's been described as a "charming, roguish character who has a wandering eye", and is set to provide a love interest for some of the women on the cobbles.

Coronation Street Producer Stuart Blackburn said: "I'm thrilled to welcome Jimi to Coronation Street, with credits that include East is East, The Guru and Blood Diamond getting him on board is a real coup.

"Jimi's character is going to have a swift impact on the lives of many in Weatherfield."

The annoumcement comes alongside the news that both Beverley Callard and Bruno Langley will be heading back to the cobbles.
