Norris Cole's story so far on Coronation Street

On his return he became a permanent resident, initially renting a room at a B&B but in December 1999 he became a lodger in Emily Bishop’s (Eileen Derbyshire) home at 3 Coronation Street.

He became good friends with both Emily and Rita Sullivan (Barbara Knox) and he soon became an employee at The Kabin.

Norris’s time on the street also saw him deal with the arrival of his half-brother Ramsey in March 2009, who he blamed for causing stress to his mother before she died.

They had fought at her funeral and Ramsey left to go live in Australia before returning to try and make amends with Norris after discovering he didn’t have long to live.

Norris refused to make up with his brother and in August that year Ramsay left to go back to Australia, but Norris and Emily later discovered that he died on the flight home because of his brain tumour.

Norris then found a letter in Ramsay’s belongings showing that he wasn’t actually a bad man, which led to Norris’s regretting his treatment of his brother who he never truly got to know.

He used the money he got from Ramsay’s will to buy The Kabin from Rita and in 2013 Emily Bishop signed her home at number 3 Coronation Street over to him.

In 2017 he got married for a third time, this time to his friend Mary Taylor (Patti Clare) to try and help her win a Mr & Mrs competition.

Mary was hoping that the competition would help her get round-the-world tickets to visit her son Jude Appleton in Australia.

He then left the soap in January 2018 to visit Emily Bishop in Edinburgh, where she was staying with her niece Freda.

Norris ended up staying there longer than initially planned and in February 2019 Rita discovered that Norris had decided to sell The Kabin.

What has Norris Cole done since his return?

Norris returned in dramatic fashion on Monday night’s episode when he arrived in a taxi and told his wife Mary that he wants a divorce.

He explained that he is in love with Freda Burgess (Ali Brigg) and that they are engaged.

Norris is then set to reveal reveal letters that he has been hiding from Mary, which causes more heartache for her.

He won’t be back in the soap for long though, as he is set to leave the street once again at the end of this week, but bosses are hoping to have him return permanently at a later date.
