Adam Fogerty has joined "Coronation Street".

The "Snatch" star is said to have shot scenes on the ITV soap's Salford set ahead of his screen role as a prison officer in the ITV soap, on which he played a hitman in 1995.

A show source said: "Adam has fitted in already. And because characters are always in and out of prison, it's likely we'll be seeing a fair amount of him on the show."

Adam played boxer Gorgeous George in Guy Ritchie's 2000 crime comedy movie, and he has starred in several hard-man film roles, such as Mouse in "Mean Machine" and Big Pat in motion picture "Legend", which was based on gangland twins Ronnie and Reggie Kray.

A TV insider added to the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "Corrie's producers are thrilled to have such an experienced actor joining the team. He has the perfect back catalogue to play a prison officer."

As well as a previous Weatherfield role, Adam is no stranger to appearing in soaps after portraying Johnny Bishop in "Hollyoaks" in 2009, and he then returned to the soap in 2017 for two episodes in another role.

He also starred as Syd Harrington in "Doctors" in 2008, and as Jez Hudson in four episodes of "Emmerdale" when it was still known "Emmerdale Farm" in 1998.

This comes just a week after reports that Janet Dibley - who played Phil Mitchell's (Steve McFadden) former lover Lorna Cartwright in "EastEnders" - has been cast as Weatherfield's Bessie Street Primary head teacher Melinda.

A source said: "This is a coup for producers. Janet was a big favourite on "EastEnders". But now she'll be spicing things up at "Corrie"."
