HOLLYOAKS star Andrew Still is joining the cast of Coronation Street.
The actor, who also starred in Waterloo Road, is set to make his debut on Corrie in a recurring guest stint later this week as a character called Justin after making a comeback to acting.
The star is best known for playing the original Joel Dexter on Hollyoaks between 2011 and 2013, before Rory Speed took over the role.
He is also loved amongst fans for his role as Scott Fairchild in BBC school drama Waterloo Road, which he starred in for a year back in 2015.
The Scottish-born actor then took a lengthy break from acting from 2015 until 2021, when he landed a part in a film called Nobody Has to Know, alongside Game of Thrones and Gangs of London actress Michelle Fairley.
Andrew recently made an acting comeback after landing a lead role in new Scottish BBC drama Granite Harbour.

The actor can currently be seen as Rory Dashford in the popular new series, which launched on BBC and BBC iPlayer last week.
These days, the soap heartthrob looks worlds away from his clean cut image he was known for during his time on Hollyoaks.
He has ditched his gelled quiffed do for a longer floppy hairstyle and he has also grown out a beard.
Speaking previously about finding work as an actor, Andrew told the Daily Record: “After I came out of Hollyoaks, I had one of those periods where you are not sure where you are going.

“You know they talk about 90 per cent of actors being out of work – well, I had the out-of-work experience. I had a year solid of getting nothing.
“Those kind of periods make you doubt yourself. It was a pretty rotten period but it teaches you a lot about yourself.
“I am not a big a fan of the glitz and glamour. I just want to settle down and work. So you come out of a show like Hollyoaks and you don’t have the job but you have all the other stuff – you are still walking about the street and getting noticed.”
