Alan Halsall signs new Coronation Street contract

Share article:

Alan Halsall has signed a new "Coronation Street" contract which will see him reach 20 years on the soap.

The 36-year-old actor has put pen to paper on a new deal to remain on the cobbles as Tyrone Dobbs until 2019, and he is "humbled" about being in Weatherfield for more than two decades.

He said: "I'm born and raised in Salford where "Coronation Street" is set, so it's always been a big thrill for me and my family when I sign a new contract.

"To reach the 20-year milestone makes me feel old but I'm also really humbled by it."

Alan would be "devastated" the day he has to leave the ITV soap, but says it is "always expected" that he will have to walk away from Weatherfield.

"I would be devastated but that possibility is part of what I do."

When he is not on the cobbles, Alan can be found in the gym at times, recently admitting he has been spending "all day" working out for three days a week as part of a healthy lifestyle.

He said: "I've had a PT (personal trainer) for about four/five months.

"I've been coming to the gym for a few years now. I've transformed a little bit myself and people have seen that. I like to come [to the gym].

"I have a pre-workout meal, I work out, then I have a post-workout meal or a swim and a steam. I can come here and learn my lines. You can pretty much spend the day here."
