CORONATION Street's Amy Barlow will fall for the bad boy on the Cobbles as her parents watch on horrified.

Corrie fans have seen the return of Jacob Hay (Jack James Ryan) to the soap after he fled when he got Simon Barlow involved in a drugs gang.

His comeback will see him fall for Simon’s cousin Amy (Elle Mulvaney) – and launch an explosive storyline.

Things begin to kick off between the pair when they run into each other at the hospital.

Amy patches things up with Summer and even takes her friend to her diabetes appointment.

But as they're leaving, Jacob approaches with his arm in a sling and assures them that he no longer has anything to do with the drugs gang.

Corrie boss Iain McLeod opened up on the new romance and why he thinks it will be a major storyline.

“What appealed was him is a fantastic actor, very Coronation Street, he has funny bones and authentic comedy – sometimes when we imports bad guys, sometimes it doesn’t have authenticity," Iain said.

“But it works with him, I believe him 100%. We will pair him up with someone historically well behaved. 

“She is quite sensible given her family dynamic and that’s Amy. How will Tracy and Steve react to the worst possible boyfriend – they try with failure to strategise this, cut her off financially, reverse psychology. 

"All of these things just make things worse and worse, to comedy effects. In the end, they have to bite the bullet and try to get along with this lad."

Iain added: “Meanwhile Jacob is redeeming himself – we discover about how he arrived in the drug gang and it will reframe views of him. 

“He is trying to put the past behind him and make amends with Leanne and Simon. 

“Jacob was groomed – he did do some heinous things but he is mature enough to know he has to put things right. It’s Meet the Parents proper Corrie style. 

“All the characters in this are cast iron Corrie, it’s a rich story.”
