Coronation Street fans went wild on Monday’s episode as they recognised newcomer Ted star Duggie Brown on the ITV soap.
During the latest instalment, Emma took Faye for a driving lesson after a New Year’s Eve party where they accidentally knocked over Ted, who had been picking up his dropped shopping in the road.
After taking the stunned pensioner home, who insisted he didn’t want to go to hospital as he felt fine, they called round later in the episode to check on him and discovered he had died.
Emma and Faye, who was recently released from prison, decided to cover up the crime and not alert emergency services.
During the dramatic scenes, soap watchers instantly recognised that Ted was played by comedian Duggie, 81.

This isn’t Duggie’s first time on the ITV soap either as he played Bernie Cooper in 2004 and George Freeman in 1997.
While his other soap roles include Emmerdale’s Ralph in 2018, EastEnders’ Gerry in 2003 and Brookside’s Ray Piper in 1994.
Taking to Twitter, one person said: “Blimey its Duggie Brown. #thecomedians #legend #Corrie.”
Another viewer put: “#Corrie is that Duggie Brown as the old man?”
A different soap watcher commented: “@itvcorrie #Corrie Duggie Brown was wonderful with @asmardell27 and Elle Leach.”
Another fan pointed out: “Duggie Brown was in The Glamour Girls, he was also in Corrie many years ago. #Corrie.”
While another viewer added: “Was that really duggie brown playing ted? What a waste of a good actor #corrie.”
It comes as Coronation Street fans think they have predicted how Emma and Faye will be caught after they accidentally killed Ted.
Prior to Ted’s death, Faye was making a cup of tea for the pensioner in the kitchen where she revealed that she had suffered an accident and lost one of her fake nails down his sink.
And soap watchers think this could be a vital piece of evidence which could bring down Faye and as a result Emma too.

Soap watchers were quick to point out that this could be another downfall as the delivery driver witnessed Emma at the property and that her DNA will be on the form.
