The character Corrie Chesney’s real-life brother plays Terry Duckworth as a child and is barely recognizable 22 years after appearing in the film.

Coronation Street star Sam Aston grew up on the soap playing underfunded Chesney Brown before becoming a doting dad.

However, the actor comes from a large family as one of nine children – and his two siblings who are not widely known also appear in the film based on Weatherfield.

His brother Joseph last appeared as a child actor on The Street playing the grandson of iconic characters Jack and Vera Duckworth.

The character was involved in a grand conspiracy involving a custody battle with both grandparents wanting to take care of him after the tragic death of his mother.

But Joseph didn’t continue his soap star life and after filming Where the Heart Is and Casualty, he left his acting job behind.

Instead, he has turned to gardening and spending time with his girlfriend as he seems unrecognizable from his youth.

Tommy Duckworth’s character was later recast as Darryl Edwards, who played the role from 1992 to 1997 and then Chris Fountain later reprising the role from 2011 to 2013.

Joseph and Sam’s sibling – Emily, 40 – also appeared in Coronation Street as the character Rebecca Palmer in 51 episodes from 1996 to 1997.

And though his siblings didn’t stay in the soap – Sam proved to be a popular actor and saw his character take part in some of the biggest storylines including a near-fatal stabbing. .






Sam’s brother Joseph has also starred in the soap

The actor, who has played Coronation Street’s Chesney Brown since 2003, became a father for the first time two years ago after his wife Briony Gardner gave birth to their son Sonny.

The childhood sweethearts ended their relationship in 2019 on what he called the “perfect” day.

Sam describes becoming a father as “an out-of-body experience”.

Sam took to Instagram in October to reveal his wife is pregnant again, sharing a snap of adorable Sonny standing next to some pumpkins with a sign.

He later shared that they were expecting a girl.

The announcement read: “We’re adding another pumpkin to our patch. Due spring 2022.”
