Coronation Street return for Harvey Gaskell as he takes down Damon Hay

Coronation Street residents last saw Harvey Gaskell sent to prison for the murder of Sam Blakeman’s mother, Natasha Blakeman.

Over the years, Harvey (played by Will Mellor) has unleashed terror on the residents of Weatherfield over the last couple of years. His recent crimes left Sam (Jude Riordan) without a mother and mute for many months. However, he’s been slowly worming his way back into the lives of the residents. Coronation Street boss Iain McLeod has teased Harvey could be back for an epic showdown with his brother Damon Hay (Ciaran Griffiths), who recently stormed onto the cobbles.

Harvey first appeared on the ITV soap back in 2021 as the drug lord who forced Simon Barlow (Alex Bain) to deal for him.

Later that year, he escaped from prison and returned to Weatherfield, intent on killing Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) for being the one to send him to prison in the first place.

Unfortunately, he fatally shot Natasha (Rachel Leskovac) in a case of mistaken identity and was sentenced to life imprisonment.

Harvey’s recent appearance saw him take part in the restorative justice programme after Sam wanted answers as to why his mother was killed.

During those visits, he learned Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) was struggling to buy Debbie Webster’s (Sue Devaney) share of the Bistro, and offered him a loan.

The decision to accept the drug lord’s loan has come back to haunt Nick in the form of Harvey’s criminal brother Damon, who revealed the money for the loan was actually his.

Since his arrival, Damon has manipulated Nick into giving him a share of the restaurant and is now using it as a front for drug deliveries.

Many fans have called for Harvey to somehow make another appearance which writer Iain McLeod is also keen for.

Speaking to, Iain admitted he would “love” to have a showdown between the two brothers who are “blood enemies.”

He explained: “Harvey, you know, I don’t think his status as a legendary hard man has been too diminished by putting on a sparkly shirt on a Saturday night,” referring to Will’s stint on Strictly Come Dancing.

“I would love to think at some point in the future that we can revisit and obviously, it’s tricky when fictional characters are in jail.

“How do you import their influence into your show when they’re actually over there somewhere? But we’ve overcome more difficult hurdles than that in the past.
