Justin Moorhouse to join `Coronation Street`

London: Actor Justin Moorhouse will join the cast of `Coronation Street` for a brief stint later this year.

The 44-year-old actor and comedian will reportedly play Dean Upton, the landlord of Rovers Return`s rival pub the Flying Horse.

Dean will go head-to-head with Rovers Return landlord Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) in a pub cricket match in scenes to be aired in August.

Speaking in a statement on `Coronation Street`s official website, Moorhouse said, "I`m delighted to be treading the cobbles.

"It`s always been a dream of mine to appear in the Rovers Return, even though as Dean, landlord of the Flying Horse, I feel like I`m a spy!"

Moorhouse will be filming on the soap prior to taking part in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
