Paddy McGuinness will not be reprising his role in Coronation Street, despite speculation that he was back filming on the cobbles.

Take Me Out host Paddy sparked rumours that he had returned to the ITV soap after uploading two photos of himself back on set.

Posing outside Roy's Rolls, Paddy said: "Dougy's back...for a butty [sic]." In another photo, as he posed in front of the Rovers Return pub, he said: "And a pint."

Despite fans thinking the TV presenter had returned for more acting, it turns out he just popped onto the set as he was filming for another ITV show.

A rep also confirmed: "He is not returning."

Paddy appeared on the cobbles as wilderness survival enthusiast Dougie Ryan last year in a guest role that saw him feature in the soap for six episodes.
