    Coronation Street fans will recognise a cobbles newbie from rival soap Emmerdale.

    Tonight on Corrie (October 28), a newcomer arrived on the cobbles – which will likely have left many fans taking a second glance.

    Luke Delaney arrived in Weatherfield as Dave Fairchild, but before his stint in Manchester, he was a resident in the Yorkshire Dales.

    The hunky actor, who is also a body builder, is playing the role of Dave, who will play a part of Max Turner getting radicalised into a far right extremist group.

    Spoilers confirmed that Max finds himself entangled with the racist group after suffering issues at school and online.

    As for actor Luke, he is no stranger to Soapland, having played the soap villain who kidnapped Maxine Minniver in Hollyoaks last year.

    And back in 2020, he even popped up in rival ITV soap opera Emmerdale where he played a skilled masseuse back.

    Luke has even appeared alongside Cillian Murphy in BBC historical drama Peaky Blinders, appearing as a police officer.

    During Luke's first scenes portraying Dave, viewers watched on as Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) confronted eco activist Griff (Michael Condron) and his mates when he discovers that the band they invited him to see were playing racist songs.

    Spoilers have revealed that Monday’s episode (October 31) will see Griff turn his attention to troubled Max and threatens to teach the bullies a lesson.

    He then invites Max to a Halloween party at his house telling the rest of the gang that he could be useful.

    In the coming months as Max becomes estranged from his family, the teenager falls under the spell of Griff who uses Max’s video and computer skills to spread their racist propaganda.
