Coronation Street fans will recognise Fizs new lover Phill from Peaky Blinders

Coronation Street newcomer Phill Whittaker is set to be confronted by love rival Tyrone Dobbs in upcoming scenes.

Phill is currently enjoying getting to know Tyrone's ex Fiz Stape (Jennie McAlpine) following their dramatic split earlier this year after the mechanic decided to explore his feelings for Alina Pop.

During Friday's episode, Phill drops his car off at the garage and a jealous Tyrone searches the car hoping to find something to discredit him.

When he discovers a napkin with a woman’s name and number scrawled on it, he pockets it.

Later in the episode, Tyrone arrives for babysitting duty but as Phill arrives for a glammed up Fiz, his jealousy comes to the fore.

Tyrone later reveals he saw the napkin and knows about Brigitte.

Fans of the ITV soap will have to wait to find out exactly who Brigitte is.

Former Peaky Blinders star Jamie Kenna joined the cast of Corrie in July.

He may be best known for his role of Big Marc in football hooligan drama Green Street, but hes swapped that now for the Cobbles.

He also appeared in dystopian drama Children of Men, and even rival soap, EastEnders.

Fans of the Brummy based cult series may recognise Jamie as having played former heavyweight champion Bill Mills in Peaky Blinders in Series 4.

Afterwards he worked for the Shelby Company Limited as a worker who fights against amateur boxer Bonnie Gold, unfortunately losing the match.

When Jamie was allowed to share his new role on Corrie, he took to Twitter to say: “ANNOUNCEMENT!!!! I can finally….FINALLY tell you all my amazing news! As of 16th July I will be appearing regularly as Phil Whittaker in the national institution that is @coronationstreet

“I can’t tell you how excited I am to be joining the cast. Especially the brilliant @jenniemcalpine & @alanhalsall.”

Phil and Fiz got together after her first date post Tyrone didn’t exactly go well.
