Granny mag­net shocker for the Street’s Ty­rone

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

CORO­NA­TION Street’s Ty­rone Dobbs reck­ons he’s a real heart-throb – to GILFS!

Ac­tor Alan Hal­sall, 29, who plays the me­chanic in the top ITV1 soap, says he is for­ever be­ing ap­proached by fe­male fans – but only be­cause their GRANS love him.

Alan – mar­ried to for­mer Cor­rie co-star Jo Hud­son – said: “It’s weird. If I’m out, young girls will come up to me and I’ll think, ‘Oh, hello’.

“And then they’ll go ‘I just had to tell you that you’re my nan’s favourite’.

“I can pull grannies for fun! Oh, don’t write that…”

His char­ac­ter Ty­rone is cur­rently at the cen­tre of a sto­ry­line in­volv­ing his psy­chotic girl­friend Kirsty Soames (played by Natalie Gumede) and his mate Tina Mcin­trye (Michelle Kee­gan).
