Coronation Street Sean: Who has he dated?

Over the years, Sean has dated a few different men but has unfortunately never found the one.

He had a brief relationship with vet Tim White. Later Michelle Connor introduced her new boyfriend Sonny Dhillon, but Sean dragonised him as one of his exes.

Although Sean and Billy didn’t work out, they have remained friends.

What storylines has Sean been involved in?

Sean became a father in 2008 when his friend Violet gave birth to his son, Dylan.

The two had a one-night-stand in 2007. The two friends were drunk and got on to the topic of having kids.

They agreed if neither of them had a child by the time they were 30 they’d have one together. However they agreed to try for a baby immediately and a few weeks later, Violet discovered she was pregnant.

After Dylan’s birth, Violet didn’t want Sean to be involved and ended up moving to London with her boyfriend Jamie.

A few years later, Sean got back in contact with Violet and she allowed him to see Dylan.

Did Sean become homeless?

Sean has lived in No.11 Coronation Street with landlady Eileen on and off over the years.

In 2016, Sean discovered Eileen’s son Todd and Billy had been seeing each other and demanded she choose between him or Todd.

Eileen’s boyfriend Pat manipulated her into choosing Todd and Sean moved into No.3 Coronation Street.

He ended up losing his job at the medical centre in 2017. In 2018 ended up getting into an argument with Angie Appleton, who he lived at No.3 with and was kicked out.

He moved in with friends Fix and Tyrone.

Later in 2018 Liz McDonald offered him to stay with her but when she found out he got her old job behind the bar at the Rovers after she was fired she told him to forget it, presuming he deliberately betrayed her.
