The Irish Mirror reports that Dubliner Simon will appear for the first time next month. But it's not yet known whether he has signed up for a short or long-term role.
A source told the Sunday World: "Simon plays an Irish character and has already filmed his opening scenes."
Simon Delaney starred in the 2001-2003 RTE series Bachelors Walk. Since then he has appeared alongside Sean Penn in This Must Be the Place, Vince Vaughn in Delivery Man and Keira Knightley in Begin Again. He's also appeared in a host of top TV shows including The Fall, Moone Boy and The Good Wife.

Simon is following in the footsteps of Ireland's Keith Duffy (Ciaran McCarthy) and Charles Lawson (Jim McDonald) who have also appeared in Corrie.

Last year Keith Duffy said that Corrie was "definitely something he'd love to do again". You can read more on that here.
