CORONATION Street’s Rick Neelan and Tommy Orpington are played by real-life brothers Greg Wood and Matt Milburn, but have never shared a scene in the ITV soap.
Greg recently reprised his role as evil loan shark Rick, targeting Gary Windass – who owes him thousands of pounds.
He will also be seen trying to force Gary into conning the elderly out of their life savings in a bid to make some fast cash.
Soap villain Rick made his first appearance on the cobbles in 2009, joining the soap to torment Joe McIntyre and threatening the character’s daughter.
He returned in 2012, this time targeting Tommy Duckworth and kidnapping Rita Tanner on her wedding day.
Meanwhile, Matt plays famous Weatherfield County footballer Tommy, who has made regular appearances in the show since 2016 when he hired Michelle Connor as his wedding planner, leaving her then-husband Steve McDonald starstruck.
He also made an appearance for Jack Webster’s harrowing sepsis storyline, and even featured as a VIP guest at the opening of David Platt and Nick Tilsley’s barber shop earlier this year.
Matt previously played Joe Spencer in Channel 4’s Hollyoaks.
As of yet, the siblings haven’t been seen together in the show – but that might change with Greg’s latest stint.
Greg previously stunned Corrie fans when he shared a photo of himself with Matt at his wedding to his Instagram page.
