SEAN Tully brought up his little-seen son Dylan Wilson during the latest Coronation Street episode. But who is his mother? And when was he born?
The Coronation Street barman has long since been a resident of Coronation Street, having joined the ITV soap in 2003.
However, several viewers are not aware that Sean, played by Antony Cotton, actually has a son.
The character brought up his child during a conversation with Rana Nazir, telling her his boy is almost 10 years old.
Sean’s son is called Dylan James Wilson who was born on the 22nd February 2008.
Dylan’s mother is Violet Wilson, played Jenny Platt, who was good friends with Sean during her time on the street.
Violet and Sean drunkenly hatched a plan that if they were both single and childless by the age of thirty, they would have a child together.
However, Violet couldn’t wait and the duo planned to have a child, using the help of a turkey baster.
After the baby was born, Sean was left devastated after he discovered Violet planned to bring up her child with then boyfriend Jamie baldwin.
The couple later left for a new life in London, leaving Sean off the birth certificate and planning to raise the child alone.
After years of no contact, Sean finally got in touch with Violet who eventually let him see his biological son. Sean often makes visits to her the child, with his last visit in 2016 after his break-up with Billy Mayhew.
