Coronation Street introduced a new face to the cobbles last night and fans couldn’t work it out. With no introduction, “Matt” as he was called, appeared behind the counter in the kebab shop and viewers want to know more about him.
In Wednesday’s episode, Cathy Matthews (Melanie Hill) and Bernie Winter (Jane Hazlegrove) put their differences aside and made up, after a petty argument caused a rift between the two.
To show her new pal that she’s keen to knuckle down, Bernie offered Cathy a can of cider and the two shared a cheeky drink together, laughing about old times.
Suddenly someone else turned up but it wasn’t Chesney Brown (Sam Aston).
Ches has managed the take-away restaurant for years but now there seems to be new staff.

Cathy and Bernie left Matt to his own devises as they sloped off to the Rovers to continue their celebratory reconciliation.
But fans of the ITV show were left wanting to know more about the new character.
Taking to Twitter, they shared their views on the newcomer and debated whether he’ll have a recurring role.
One quizzed: “Who is kebab man? Why is this his first appearance? Where is Chesney? I have so many questions.”
Another demanded answers: “Who the heck is that Matt?”
“We need Kebab Man’s backstory,” a third noted.
Someone else joked: “Some random bloke has come into the kebab shop to work a shift, like we all know who he is.”
Others were concerned that Matt may have taken Chesney’s job, as he failed to appear at all in Wednesday’s episode.
“Where is Chesney and who is Matt?!” a viewer seemed exasperated.

Elsewhere, Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) and Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) are about to find out what’s wrong with their young son Oliver after he suffered a seizure and was rushed to hospital.
The pair had a drunken one night stand a few years ago and Leanne found out she was pregnant.
Whilst the pair have never been on the best of terms, Steve has been trying to make more of an effort with Oliver in recent months.
But while the cabby was spending the day with his son, it soon turned to tragedy.

After having to rush out to an emergency with his eldest daughter (Alexandra Mardell), Oliver was left with teen Summer Spellman (Matilda Freeman) and suffered a fit in his father’s absence.
He was rushed to the medical centre and Leanne blamed Steve for leaving him alone.
However, she soon experienced the same frightful situation when Oliver collapsed again.
In episodes to come, it will be revealed Oliver has suspected mitochondrial disease – how will his family deal with the diagnosis?
Coronation Street continues tonight at 7.30pm on ITV.
