Rob Hughes appeared on Coronation Street in two roles: as an unnamed Police Officer who carried out a random drugs search on David Platt and Gary Windass following a night out in January 2011, and he returned to the programme in September 2017 as a Tactical Aid Unit Officer on scene when a drugs raid was carried out at Nick's Bistro.

His only other known credit was for a 2005 episode of Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps.
