'Coronation Street's' Sean Tully is set to get a hunky new boyfriend.

It's been a while since Sean's last boyfriend Marcus Dent, left so it's about time he found someone new

The skinny barman is set to meet bodybuilder Leon after Sean (Anthony Cotton) starts going to the gym with friend Jason Grimshaw.

A source at the ITV soap said: "It's been a while since Sean's last boyfriend Marcus Dent, left so it's about time he found someone new."

Leon will be portrayed by actor Andrew Langtree - who has previously had roles in 'Heartbeat' and 'Cutting it'.

Although Sean and Leon have an instant attraction, the insider says their relationship won't get off to the best start.

The source added: "The trouble is Anthony ends up being dishonest in order to interest Leon. It'll be interesting to see if they can make their relationship work."

So far it is unknown if Leon will be a permanent character in the soap. He will appear on screens in July shortly after Jason (Ryan Thomas) and Sean start their new fitness regime.
