And his appearance shocked Corrie fans last night.
One wrote: "I'm sure that guy was in Emmerdale years ago #Corrie"
A second said: "Oh it’s Steve Marchant from @emmerdale from 24 years ago in @itvcorrie talking to dev #Corrie"
Another added: ""Great to see Paul Opacic in @itvcorrie, though ever since Claire King returned to @emmerdale I hoped he’d be back on there. Unfinished business surely! #corrie #emmerdale."
Viewers have been enraged by controlling Corey after he weaselled his way back in with Asha after she had her heart broken by Nina Lucas.
His dad's arrival will spell disaster for Asha as she ends up moving in with Corey with his dad footing the bill.
He'll go head to head with Dev Alahan when he buys Nick Tilsley and Leanne Battersby's apartment for the young couple to live in.
"Stefan is going to cause chaos on the cobbles this year and give Dev major headaches.
"If viewers think Corey is bad, wait to see what kind of monster created him."
Paul has already begun filming and will be seen on screen later this month.
He is best known for playing Kim Tate's husband Steve Marchant in Emmerdale from 1993 to 1999.
The actor went on to play villain Carl Costello in Hollyoaks on and off between 2010 and 2018.
