Tony is best known for his appearance as hairdresser Kenneth in the hit ITV comedy, Benidorm.
The star also opened up about his debut being delayed due to coronavirus and revealed what his time on the soap has been like so far.
Of his first scene, he told Lorraine: “It was in the Rovers with the lovely Patti Clare who made me feel very welcome.
“It was very strange as it was all slowed down, all very diluted, a lot of the actors I haven’t even met yet and I’ve been there two months!”
Coronation Street airs Monays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7:30pm and 8:30pm on ITV.
