The actor played three different role in the ITV soap dating all the way back to 1986 when he appeared in Coronation Street as paperboy Craig Russell.

He returned in a different role in 1989, playing Mark Casey and remained on the show until 1991. Wolfenden returned to Coronation Street a third time in 2015, this time in the role of Greig Hodge.

Fans took to the comments to gush over the iconic snap.

“Fabulous! Takes me back x,” said one fan.

A second recalled: “Watched you on the classic corries. What an 80s hunk.”

“You are still cool Stuart. The best is yet to come !” said one well-wishes, while a fourth made a dig at the star’s outfit, saying: “Double double denim! In one photo wow lol”

Actor Kevin Kennedy, who left the soap back in 2003 after a 20-year stint as bin man Curly Watts, recently made headlines after struggling with alcohol abuse since his time on the show.

The 60-year-old actor has admitted he has struggled with alcoholism throughout the early period of his fame.

Kennedy experienced a wake-up call when an attempt to go cold turkey in 1998 resulted in a huge medical emergency, which he described to The Sun as "a massive blackout-cum-stroke".

He added: "I came to in the ambulance and it scared the hell out of me.

"I knew I would die if I carried on [drinking] but, emotionally, I didn’t get it. The addiction was telling me it was normal.”

Kennedy confessed that, at the height of his addiction, he would drink a bottle of vodka on his way to set every day, followed by three bottles of wine every night.

In the wake of his collapse, he revealed his addiction to Corrie bosses and was sent to undergo a rehab programme at famous clinic The Priory.

He now credits the soap with saving his life as he marks 25 years of sobriety.

Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday on ITV at 8pm
