Coronation Street star James Burrows has some happy news to share: he’s going to be a father!

Fans of his soap character Ali Neeson have plastered support all over his Instagram post, which reads: “Me and my beautiful girlfriend @sophie_coates are over the moon to announce that we’re having a baby. We can not contain our excitement we are so so happy x”

With Burrows’ latest Corrie storyline shocking viewers tonight (October 12) Ali turned to the dark side and murdered dangerous gangster Ronan Truman – the actor fielded several questions from Digital Spy regarding his character’s future.

Reflecting on his bloodstained new direction, Burrows shared: “I’ve really enjoyed doing this storyline. It’s been an emotional rollercoaster. I don’t know what they’ve got in store for me next year. I don’t know if Ali is going to be the new mass murderer, or if it’s going to be a one-off.

“There was a reason that Ali did this – it was to protect his family. I think his family would understand that as well, if they found out.”
