Coronation Street star Antony Cotton proved that is a heartbreaker when scoring a direct hit during a celebration.

The actor, who plays Sean Tully in the soap, joined customers and employees in Grosvenor Casino and Mecca’s bingo club in Westwood Cross to hit a giant heart-shaped piñata to mark the start of a charity venture.

Mr Cotton visited Thanet to launch a partnership between Rank, which owns the entertainment venues and the Carers Trust charity.

The clubs have already hosted fundraising events for the cause.

So far they have raised £1,108. Three out of five people will be carers at some stage in their lives and Carers Trust is the UK’s largest charity for carers.
