'Corrie' character's drugs problems 'may get worse'

Sol Heras has admitted his 'Corrie' character's problem with drugs are about to get worse.

The actor - who plays trouble maker Ryan Connor - has seen his character go off the rails since he started taking drugs at university and he admits he is unlikely to kick his habit any time soon.

He said: "Things could get much worse for Ryan. Who knows what he'll involve himself with next? I think it will take something big to make it really hit home with Ryan that things have got to change.

"But he doesn't see it as a problem. He thinks he's in control of it, that it's just like taking a little boost of confidence."

The newcomer - who arrived on the street earlier this year in July - admits he loves his character's storylines so far which recently saw his mum Michelle hand him into police when she caught him with drugs.

He told Soap Life magazine: "It's great. I've barely slept since I started but I'm not complaining because every day I come in and the storylines are never dull. Ryan's got so many different things going on it's never going to get boring."
