Stu in Coronation Street made an appearance in tonight’s episode (Wednesday, October 27), but who is he and who plays him?
Who is Stu in Coronation Street and when did he first appear?
Stu is a homeless man who has been sleeping on the streets of Weatherfield.
He made his first appearance last week during Super Soap Week when Abi returned the cobbles after being released from the police station.
Stu was asleep in the ginnel by some bins and it was shown to viewers he has a Weatherfield County backpack.
In tonight’s scenes Stu went into Dev’s shop and Asha confronted him when she saw him shoplifting.
However she soon spotted he had a Weatherfield County bag and asked where he got it.
When he revealed he found it, Asha knew there was a chance it could be Corey’s backpack that he threw away the night he attacked Nina and Seb.
Soon Stu ran off, will they be able to find him? Does he know something about the night Seb and Nina were attacked?
