Acclaimed actress Maureen Lipman CBE has joined the cast of British soap 'Coronation Street'.

The British star will play the role of Evelyn Plummer, Tyrone Dobb's grandmother. She is introduced to the show after Tyrone begins to research his family history.

'Coronation Street' Producer Iain MacLeod said: "I am beyond thrilled that we are introducing such a great new character, played by someone of Maureen's pedigree. Evelyn is eye-wateringly withering and will add a fresh dollop of northern humour to the show as she turns Tyrone and Fiz's lives upside down."

Ms Lipman CBE has starred in many films including Roman Polanski's award winning film 'The Pianist', 'Educating Rita' and 'Oklahoma'. She has appeared in TV series such as 'All at Number 20', 'The Fugitives' and 'Plebs'.

She will make her debut as Evelyn on 'Coronation Street' in September.
