Corrie enemies Connor McIntyre and Les Dennis reunite for very different role

The last time we saw them together, Pat Phelan was standing over Michael Rodwell, coldly watching him die of a heart attack.

Now the former Coronation Street enemies are teaming up for a joint reign of terror – making Cinderella’s life a misery as the Ugly Sisters.

Actors Connor McIntyre and Les Dennis will play panto dames Phelina and Michaela.

Connor, 57, whose serial killer character was stabbed to death by Anna Windass in June, said: “I was just leaving Corrie so you would think if any of these opportunities came up it would be the villain.

“To be doing it with Les is fabulous.

"I think the audience will make their feelings clear.”

The panto at Manchester’s Opera House will be Connor’s first while Les, 65, is a 22-time veteran, including Aladdin on Ricky Gervais’s Extras, which is credited with reviving his career.

Les said: “It will be the traditional pantomime with a lot of laughter and spectacle.”
