Coronation Street Dee-Dee's love interest Joel had huge stint on rival soap – do you recognise him? | The Sun

SINCE arriving on the scene at Coronation Street Joel has begun to pursue a romance with Dee-Dee Bailey, but eagle-eyed viewers may recognise him from another soap.

New character Joel Deering, who is being played by Calum Lill, has joined the Cobbles as a duty solicitor.

And he seems to have set his sights on fan favourite Dee-Dee, having already asked her out for drinks.

However, though Calum is new to the show, he should prove to be a familiar face for viewers.

The actor is also known for playing villain P.C Smith on Hollyoaks.

He began playing the vindictive policeman in March 2021.

The Hollyoaks baddie appeared in 12 episodes of the soap, where he got on the wrong side of the law while trying to frame John Paul for the murder of his abusive friend George Kiss.

Now soap fans will get to see a whole new side of Calum, as he plays a more romantic character.

He starts off by going out for drinks with Dee-Dee, which he sees as a date, but she thinks was a work related meeting.

The career focused solicitor gets her books out, excited for a chance to explain US law to him, but ends up kicking herself later when she realises her mistake.
