ITV soap bosses have announced that The Bay and Shameless actor Ciaran Griffiths will make his Coronation Street debut as Jacob's dad Damon this December – with Damon set to try and make amends with his son.
However, Jacob is intent on having nothing do with his mysterious dad.
Viewers will be left wondering why Jacob is so desperate to push his dad away – and what secrets Damon could be hiding as he makes his sudden arrival.
On being cast in the role of Damon, Ciaran Griffiths said: "I’m happy to be back in Manchester to see my family and friends after being away in Australia for the last 3 years. The city has changed so much!
"And what better way to tie it in with a stint on the Cobbles.
"I watched Corrie as a kid and it’s great to be back with some old friends both cast and crew. I’m loving having the opportunity to work with some quality Northern actors whose work I have long admired, particularly on such a complex character like Damon."
With Damon soon to be seen pushing for a business opportunity at the bistro, it might not only be Jacob that is danger, but Leanne and Nick too, with soap bosses teasing an explosive future for the character.
Coronation Street Producer Iain MacLeod said: "Having Ciaran on board is so exciting and especially because the character he is playing is so interesting.
"Damon is charming and likeable on the surface but we will soon see he is much more complicated than that as he goes on to have an explosive impact, both in Jacob’s life and beyond."
