ITV Coronation Street's Phill tries to win Fiz back after huge wedding twist

Phill Whittaker will be stuck in denial after being jilted at the alter on Coronation Street.

Next week, the heartbroken character, played by Jamie Kenna, will try his best to win back the affections of Fiz Stape (Jennie McAlpine). Last night’s shock episode saw Phill dumped at his wedding reception, after marrying the woman of his dreams, while Fiz ran back into the arms of ex Tyrone (Alan Halsall).

It came after Tyrone announced that he still had feelings for her earlier in the week and then Phill's ex, Camilla, appeared on the cobbles. However, Phill is unaware that Ty is the reason behind her change of mind during the wedding ceremony.

Phill embarks on a series of stunts to prove the depth of his love to Fiz, including a grand gesture with a Mariachi band. Phill will be suited and booted, dickie bow and all, as he tries to reignite the flame with Fiz.

Jamie Kenna who plays Phill explained: "I think love is blind and love can make us do very, very out of character things. So he goes through pretty much a full wardrobe of dress up clothes in an attempt to create certain scenarios to win her back! He just tries every single thing romantically he can think of but from the outside looking in it's kind of painful and cringe worthy to watch bless him.”

Talking about the downfall of the relationship, the actor said: "It’s absolutely devastating, the whole pack of cards comes tumbling down. It’s his perfect day, with his perfect woman, it’s the moment he’s been waiting for his entire life.

"He’s got his grandmother's ring, whose dying wish was for him to give it to someone he loves, which he does. They’ve had their ups and downs, they’ve got over the sabotage going on but they’ve finally made it down the aisle.

"She looked him in the eyes, there was a little stumble at the wedding but it’s all good, they’ve got over everything as far as he’s concerned. So it’s utter shock."

He added: "That being said he's not stupid. I think he senses throughout the day that something's maybe not quite right, so when Fiz turns round and says she needs to speak to him, I think he knows. But it's just utter devastation, there's no other word for it, his world implodes."
