Coronation Street star reveals Michael reaction to Ronnie’s dad secret

Michael Bailey (Ryan Russell) certainly didn’t have the reaction you’d expect when told he was going to be a father in Coronation Street. Of course, given his recent storyline, his reaction was completely understandable after Grace Vickers (Kate Spencer) tricked him into thinking the child she was looking after was his daughter.

Despite his initial doubts, Michael has been supporting Grace throughout her pregnancy, and now she’s given birth, he thought all he’d have to worry about is raising his daughter, but Ronnie (Vinta Morgan) has other ideas.

Ronnie thinks that because of his previous relationship with Aggie (Lorna Laidlaw), Michael might actually be his son, and therefore he seemingly tells the young man about his suspicions.

Ahead of these scenes, actor Ryan Russell has discussed Michael’s reaction when he learns of the potentially life changing news:

‘Initially it’s shock and disbelief. It’s come out of left field,’ the actor told Metro.co.uk. ‘The last thing he was expecting was to hear this. All of his focus was on Glory and making sure she was okay. It’s a lot to take in.

There’s a lot going on in his head and he’s still trying to process this bombshell. It’s another bombshell, it’s not been long since the last one with Tianna, so it’s a massive shock.

There are feelings of betrayal and hurt towards Aggie especially. It’s been 30 years and none of this has come to light until now at the worst moment, when his daughter is in hospital. It’s a case of terrible timing once again. It’s a lot for him to take in and he has to process it in the right way, which you’ll see.’

Michael’s head is in a complete spin when he learns that Ed (Trevor Michael Georges) may not be his dad. Ryan continued his chat, adding how his character feels towards Ed:

‘When he finds out that Ed knew before, he’s instantly like: “You three have been talking behind my back”. When he finds out that Ed has been left in the dark for so long also, he forms an alliance against Aggie.

There’s a sense of betrayal and anger that they’ve kept it from him for so long.’
