What else has Maximus Evans been in? Here's what we know about the Coronation Street actor...

Coronation Street’s Corey Brent is a nasty piece of work, but it looks like he might finally get his comeuppance.

Nina (Mollie Gallagher) is determined to get revenge after Corey led the gang of thugs who attacked her and Seb Franklin (Harry Visinoni), causing Seb's death.

Corey has already been charged with GBH and murder, but was allowed out on bail ahead of the trial.
