Coronation Street’s James Bailey will be shocked as smooth-talking ex boyfriend Danny returns in dramatic new storyline

CORONATION Street's James Bailey will be shocked as his smooth-talking ex boyfriend Danny is returning in a dramatic new storyline.

Actor Dylan Brady – who plays the bistro manager – was pictured on set earlier this week alongside Trevor Michael George, who plays Edison Bailey.

Trevor shared pictures with his on-screen family, with one of them featuring Dylan in a blue ITV jacket smiling at the camera.

He captioned the pics: "First time the Bailey family have shot together in a year. Great to see everyone."

This signals that Danny will be making a return to Corrie and will be a part of James Bailey's major new story line, with bosses hinting he would have a massive plot coming up soon.

Dylan first appeared as Danny for a month long stint in February 2020 and immediately became a hit with fans.


Danny caused controversy in James' life last time by outing him on social media – leading to some tough questions from reporters.

The Baileys are set to be embroiled in a slow burning racism storyline that will climax in July.

Last year the popular ITV soap touched upon the important issue when Ed and Michael were subjected to some shocking comments from the new Bistro manager Don.

Now it looks like the show plan to tackle the issue further and get people talking about it with a much more intense storyline – which is due to have a "dramatic peak" in six months time.

Soap boss Iain MacLeod recently opened up about what viewers can expect over the next few months as the plot starts to unravel.

He explained: "We're doing a slow-burn exploration of systemic racism.

"Obviously we touched upon that subject area with verbal racism earlier in 2020, but we'll now be playing out a more long-form exploration of system racism, which is of the more insidious and almost subliminal form.

"Rather than overt name-calling, it's more the kind of things that our actors have told us they've experienced in their day-to-day lives – unconscious bias and systemic racism."

Ian admitted that they wanted to address things further following what they aired last year as it's important for people to see and understand so that they can be more educated about the subject.

He added: "As a show, we felt strongly that we should be exploring that in a slightly more in-depth way.

"That comes to a more explicitly dramatic peak around July time onscreen."
