FANS still live in hope that Spider Nugent will one day return to the cobbles.
Not that actor Martin Hancock has stood still since eco warrior Geoffrey was last seen in Coronation Street.
And you can see him today, guest starring as a baddie called Chuckworth (pictured) in BBC1’s MI High.
If you’re not familiar with the CBBC series, it’s a teen spy drama set in a high school.
Today’s episode, screened at 5pm, finds the teen spies stunned when spymaster Lenny is arrested for a jewel robbery.
But I think we might be able to guess who the real thief is.
Spider arrived in Weatherfield in 1997 and is still fondly remembered today.
Nephew of Emily, he helped save the Red Rec and became romantically involved with Toyah.
You can see what else he’s been up to here.
And don’t worry if you miss today’s MI High – at least if you’re in the UK.
You can watch the episode online via the BBC iPlayer where it will be available after transmission for seven days.
