Ashley Barker played two roles in Coronation Street: in February 1981 he appeared in the small role of Terry, a thuggish lorry driver who caused trouble in Jim's Cafe when he groped Sandra Webb and in December 1998 he returned as the far more respectable Andrew Yorke, a hospital manager at Weatherfield General and Martin Platt's boss, the character appearing intermittently until March 1999.
