Actor Chris Quinten has had a dramatic week after he announced his engagement – only for his new fiancee to end up in hospital with severe sunstroke.

The former Coronation Street star, 61, is set to marry 21-year-old stripper Robyn Delabarre, popping the question on the Greek island of Mykonos where they have also been celebrating her birthday.

However things went slightly awry after she needed medical treatment – later revealing on Facebook: Nice relaxing day with our hot tub and view after a horrible trip to A&E last night and me ended up on a drip that cost £500.

Never a dull moment, lucky he held my hand and cuddled up in the hospital bed with me, always looking after me.

Chris originally found fame in Coronation Street, being a major part of the soap during the 80s – but when was he in the show and who did he play?

When was Chris Quinten in Coronation Street and who did he play?

Chris was first seen on the cobbles in 1979, playing Brian Tilsley, the son of Ivy and Bert Tilsley – and the father of current characters Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) and Sarah Louise Platt (Tina OBrien).

Brian, a car mechanic, was already in a relationship with Gail (Helen Worth) and they married soon after he arrived in the soap – with Brian going on to buy a share of a garage in Albert Street which he ran during his time on the show.

Things werent plain sailing for him and Gail though – she had an affair with Brians cousin Ian Latimer and later discovered she was pregnant with Sarah Louise (who turned out to be Brian)s, although they stayed together and attempted to put their troubles behind them.

When did Chris Quinten leave the soap?

He left Coronation Street in 1989 after revealing plans to move to the US to marry his then-fiancee, talk show host Leeza Gibbons – with producers subsequently deciding to kill the character off.

As a result Brian met a tragic end on 15 February of that year when, just as Gail ended things between them again, he was stabbed to death outside a nightclub by a gang of thugs after trying to protect a woman from them.

What has Chris Quinten done since leaving Coronation Street?

Top Gun: Maverick Planning To Touch Down At San Diego Comic-Con

EXCLUSIVE: We are hearing buzz that Paramount and Skydance Media will be flying Top Gun: Maverick do..

EXCLUSIVE: We are hearing buzz that Paramount and Skydance Media will be flying Top Gun: Maverick down to San Diego Comic-Con for some kind of presence.

Non-studio sources tell us that cast from the pic are already booking hotels and tickets. Tom Cruise hasnt been confirmed exactly yet, but it wouldnt be a shocker if he showed up. Hes very good about event-izing his pics and made a big appearance at Paramount/Skydances Mission: Impossible – Fallout CinemaCon session last year. Top Gun: Maverick shot in San Diego last summer, so its a pretty special place for all those involved in the Paramount-Skydance production. Today CineEurope attendees in Barcelona were the first to see two minutes of footage from the film, which opens on June 26, 2020. Note things could always change. We heard very early on that Dwayne Johnsons Fighting With My Family was going to Sundance with him in tow, however, it wasnt until the New Year that he was fully committed given his working schedule.

The last time Paramount and Skydance made a splash at Comic-Con was with the 2016 movie Star Trek: Beyond which made its world premiere there with an outdoor screening accompanied by the pics talent and a live orchestra playing the score throughout the movie.

In a big way Paramount was one of the first studios to venture down and leverage the fanboy population at SDCC when they were still releasing the Marvel movies, i.e. Iron Man, Thor, etc during the early aughts.

Well, yes and no.

Himesh told Metro.co.uk that there would only be one story that would allow him to consider a return to the square: If we all came back, the family who originally joined in 2007.

If we came back and we were the main storyline for a week.

But when pressed if he would be happy to therefore return if it was just for one week, he added: I am not saying I would definitely be happy to do it. But hypothetically speaking, yes.
