Coronation Street fans have “worked out” a link between Fiz’s new man Phill and her evil ex John Stape.
Fiz (Jennie McAlpine) has been quite unlucky in love in the past. She was married to John (Graeme Hawley) for a few years – but he turned out to be an evil and manipulative villain, before she eventually found love with Tyrone Dobbs (Alan Halsall) after John’s death.
However, things didn’t quite turn out well for her and Tyrone either, and the pair ended up splitting up after Tyrone went off with a younger woman, Alina. Things do seem to be looking up for Fiz after meeting new man Phill Whittaker (Jamie Kenna).
Fans of the ITV soap, though, are predicting heartache for Fiz as they are convinced there is a link between her new man Phill and her ex-husband John Stape – and they are convinced they could be related somehow.
“I think he’s something to do with John Stape. Not sure what it is yet. Maybe brother?” one fan wrote.
A second added: “I think Phill is John Stape’s brother,” as a third shared: “I wonder if Phill is related to John Stape.”
“Phill definitely has something to do with John Stape,” a fourth penned as a fifth agreed in their own post on social media: “There is something up with Phill. Maybe something to do with John Stape.”
Actor Jamie Kenna previously revealed to The Mirror that he was only meant to be on the soap for a few episodes.
“I think my agent put me forward for the role of Phill, which was originally seven or eight episodes but potentially more,” he said, “She put me up for it not knowing the history. [Corrie casting director] Gennie Radcliffe said, ‘We really like Jamie, we want to go for him.’ So the audition process happened two years ago for a completely different part!”
Speaking about the role, he added: “I was over the moon [to be cast as Phill]. Something like Corrie is so massive and iconic and I’ve had lots of friends who have come through the show, either as guests or regulars. No-one says anything bad about Corrie.
“It’s weird as I’ve been in the business for 22 years. I’ve done lots of work but to step onto the cobbles is something very special.”
