Star Alan Halsall has been flooded with love from his Coronation Street co-stars as he celebrated 25 of years playing Tyrone Dobbs on the soap opera.

In his time on the soap, Tyrone became co-owner with the garage with Kevin Webster, married long-time sweetheart Fiz Brown, and has a daughter in Ruby Dobbs – plus adopted daughter Hope. He recently discovered his birth mother, Cassie Plummer, who now lives with him in the family home.

Posting on his Instagram account yesterday (Thursday, November 30), Alan shared the news of his Corrie milestone with fans. Sharing a series of pictures of himself as Tyrone through the years, Alan reminisced on his Corrie beginnings.
