Coronation Street's Hashim actor Vincent Ebrahim has surprise connection to rival soap – but did you recognise him?

CORRIE fans have been delighted by the surprise return of Zeedan Nazir to the cobbles, and next week a familiar face arrives in pursuit of him. 

Zeedan (Qasim Akhtar) is shocked when his father-in-law Hashim arrives in Weatherfield and starts to issue demands. 

The actor who plays him is a TV regular, with Vincent Ebrahim having starred in a number of hit shows and other soaps.

Stern faced Hashim is out to get Zeedan for cheating on his daughter.

Zeedan recently split from his wife, Hashim's daughter Mariam, and revealed he'd had an affair.

Now her family want revenge, having taunted Zeedan and beaten him up, as well as threatening to kill him.

Viewers may have seen Vincent prior to his Corrie debut.

Soap fans might recognise him from his role in Hollyoaks, as Big Bob in seven episodes in 2014.

An associate of villain Trevor Royle, nasty Bob took hostages in a siege at the hospital resulting in the shooting of Freddie Roscoe.
