Coronation Street fans have begged bosses to make DS Swain a permanent character on the soap.

The police officer, played by Victoria Meyer, has cropped up several times in recent weeks as she became the lead investigator in Stephen Reid's (Todd Boyce) death. During Monday's episode (November 20) of the ITV soap, DS Swain arrived once again and arrested Amy Barlow (Elle Mulvaney) for kidnapping Dan.

Her presence was welcomed with open arms amongst fans, who voiced hopes of the character becoming a regular resident on the Cobbles. Taking to social media, one penned: "I hope we see more of DS Swain."

Amy revealed she was raped by a man like Dan and wants to prevent it from happening to anyone else. Afterwards, Amy began flirting with Dan as he attempted to spike her too.

What he didn't realise was Amy had switched their drinks. The next day, DS Swain arrived and revealed Dan almost died, but had woken up and accused Amy of kidnapping him.
