Will Mellor is set to return to 'Coronation Street'.

The 46-year-old star looks set to be busy in the coming months after it was confirmed this month he has signed up for 'Strictly Come Dancing', and now it looks like he'll be back on the ITV soap as killer Harvey Gaskell.

According to Metro.co.uk, Will has been filming some scenes as his evil Harvey, who is currently in prison.

In the meantime, the former 'Hollyoaks' star may be thinking about life on the dancefloor rather than behind bars after he became the first celebrity contestant confirmed for this year's 'Strictly'.

The 'Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps' actor is doing the show for his mum, but admits it will be a "huge challenge" for him.

He said: "I'm honestly so chuffed to be taking part in 'Strictly Come Dancing' this year!

"Not going to lie, it's totally out of my comfort zone and I know it will be a huge challenge but that's what life is all about.

"This is also my mum's favourite show and she’s had a really tough few years so I’m doing this is for her as well. Bring it on!"

Will looks set to be in good company on the BBC show as since he has been confirmed, former 'Corrie' favourite Kym Marsh has also been announced for the programme, and 'EastEnders' actor James Bye will be swapping a soap for some sequins later this year.

Richie Anderson, Kaye Adams, Jayde Adams, Ellie Simmonds, Tyler West, Matt Goss, Ellie Taylor, Molly Rainford, Tony Adams, Fleur East and Hamza Yassin will also take part in the show.
