He plays a petty criminal, Michael Rogers, who is caught stealing from Gail McIntyre’s house on the famous street.

In the first soap snaps of the star Gail, played by Helen Worth, arrives home to find Michael, who claims to be inspecting a gas leak, in her living room.

Pushing Gail, Michael jumps in a van and drives off as Kylie Platt, played by Paula Lane, runs after him before Gail discovers her favourite necklace has been stolen.

Dennis has previously said he is “thrilled” to be joining Coronation Street.

He said: “I’ve loved it since the beginning. I grew up watching all the amazing characters in the show. I now not only have the chance of meeting them, but also working with them. It doesn’t get better than that.”

Coronation Street producer Stuart Blackburn has called Les “a fantastic performer and a real coup for Corrie”.

The actor makes his debut on Monday March 24.
