Actor Antony announced the exciting news on Twitter, saying that his actress mother Enid Dunn has signed up for several episodes.
Antony told his followers: "So. My @itvcorrie news. My lovely mum is coming in to play a fun character for a handful of eps. Well done mum! x"
Hours earlier, the former I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! star had teased: "Had the best day ever yesterday, for various reasons.
"One was Corrie related certainly, but I'm waiting to see if I can talk about it...."
This will be the fourth time Enid has appeared in Coronation Street, as she has previously walked the cobbles with small bit parts.
Enid previously worked as a top seamstress, however, spurred on by Antony's success, followed her childhood ambition to tread the boards in the 90s on her 50th birthday.
