Coronation Street role for Vaughn

Robert Vaughn is set to stir things up on Corrie

The Man from Uncle is coming to Weatherfield.

Veteran actor Robert Vaughn, who shot to fame in the 1960s as secret agent Napoleon Solo, will play a wealthy American who met Roy Cropper's mother Sylvia Goodwin (Stephanie Cole) on a cruise.

He is expected to appear on Coronation Street for three weeks early next year.

Show insiders claim his arrival on the street after Sylvia's return from the cruise will "put the cat firmly amongst the pigeons".

Robert, who appeared in The Magnificent Seven with Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen, has become a familiar face on British television with his role in the BBC show Hustle where he plays conman Albert Stroller.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Libra:

Don't let a manipulator take advantage of you. Someone with a sob story will ask for money or favours. Be prepared to turn them away. Although you want to be gracious, it simply isn't wise to give assistance to people with bad motives. Other people have warned you about this trickster. Take their advice. There's often a good reason why a person has a bad reputation. If anyone dares accuse you of being selfish, stay strong. You have a right to use your hard earned money for your own benefit.More
