Matt Milburn, who played a hunky vet in Emmerdale, is set to join the cast at Coronation Street.

Millburn, who appeared in 30 episodes of Emmerdale in 2011, will be appearing on the cobbles as a member of Weatherfield County football team called Tommy Orpington, according to TV Times.

His Spotlight CV says he is signed up for four episodes of Coronation Street but with former Emmerdale Producer Kate Oates now in charge of the soap, there is a chance he has been brought in for a longer stint.

Millburn, who has also appeared in the likes of Heartbeat and Hollyoaks, is reported to enter the show after he hires Michelle as his wedding planner.
