Corrie to welcome the Bailey family to the cobbles

Having bought No.3 from Norris, the family will arrive in Weatherfield in early June.

Dad Edision (known as Ed), will be played by Trevor Michael Georges, whilst former Doctors actor Lorna Laidlaw will play mum Aggie, both in their 50s. Their two sons Michael and James, will be played by former CBeebies presenter Ryan Russell and TV newcomer Nathan Graham.

Edison and Michael arrive on the street having already bought the builder’s yard from the Grimshaws and the family soon make themselves at home in Weatherfield. And while initially they may rub a few people up the wrong way they’re soon firm favourites in the community.
