Tyrone Sylvester Dobbs is a fictional character in the UK television ITV soap opera, Coronation Streetmarker. Portrayed by Alan Halsall, the character first appeared onscreen during the episode airing on November 30, 1998.



During an interview with Alan Halsall, the actor revealed that he likes characters to develop in different ways. Halsall stated he enjoys the experience of the characters various relationships, especially as it differs with each one, notably his characters partnership with Molly's auntie Pam. The actor confirmed that he was pleased to see Tyrone involved in more storylines, feeling that his character was underused for a long period of time. He also claimed interest in the aspect of a wedding. Alan Halsall contradicted statements that Tyrone and Molly were the new Jack and Vera, claiming it impossible for him to fill. The actor revealed that he would be pleased to see Margi Clarke as Tyrone's on-screen mother full-time on the show.


The character arrived on Coronation Street with his mother, Jackie, in 1998. Upon his arrival, it became clear Tyrone had been in minor trouble with the police. He was employed by Curly Watts collecting trolleys at a supermarket, however, lost his job when he accidentally pushed a trolley into the area manager's new car. Following this, Tyrone trained as an apprentice mechanic at Kevin Webster's garage. After his mother abandoned him, Tyrone moved into Jack and Vera Duckworth's bed and breakfast establishment, adopting a greyhound, Monica.

Whilst seeking a partner for Monica, Tyrone met and began dating Maria Sutherland, a dog-breeder, and they eventually became engaged. Fiz Brown, however, attempted to come between them. Having ended his relationship with Maria, Tyrone found himself better suited with kennel maid Molly Compton. Whilst they accompanied Jack and Vera at Number 9, they planned to move out, but resorted to buying the property when Jack and Vera decided to move to Blackpoolmarker. Vera, however, died of heart failure in 2008. Jack continued to live at Number 9, and the family atmosphere was soon enhanced with the arrival of Molly's aunt, Pam Hobsworth.

Jack, in an attempt to encourage Tyrone to propose to Molly, gave him Vera's engagement ring. Tyrone booked a table at a fancy restaurant, but was upstaged by a much flashier proposal before he could pop the question. Several days later, Pam suggested Tyrone put a ring in a decorative egg which also had a voice recorder. When Tyrone opened the egg at Rover's, instead of a recording asking Molly to marry him, the voice was Kirk Sutherland asking how it worked. Tyrone ran out in shame. Jack and Kirk followed, and Jack told him the moments that didn't go as planned were often happier than the moments which did. Tyrone decided to try again, and returned to find a burger van decorated in Christmas lights and with a table in front. When Tyrone opened the egg to propose, Molly opened an egg of her own, with a recording of her saying, "Of course, you great nana."

The following month, Tyrone decided to visit his mother. They discovered Jackie was still £1,000 in debt and owed his dad's friend money. Tyrone and Molly decided to help, much to their despair as they planned to use it for Molly's wedding dress. Tyrone subsequently told Jackie that she wasn't invited to the wedding.

Tyrone's job was later in jeopardy with Tony Gordon's attempts to sabotage Kevin's business. As a result of this Tyrone decided to earn some extra cash by volunteering to test out products for a medical research company. Kevin then asked him to buy half the business, Tyrone later agreed and they are now co-owners. So the garage can stay open for business. Tyrone began selling knock-off merchandise with Pam, in order to afford to give Molly her preferred wedding.

On his stag night, Tyrone was roped into selling merchandise for Pam. Tyrone and Molly were married on January 12, 2009 after Tyrone had been arrested and hand-cuffed by 'Dave' in a pub en-route to the wedding. He arrived, albeit late, at the church but fainted soon after exchanging vows. He later found out that the police officer who had 'arrested' him was none other than Pam's ex, who had Jack, Kirk and Tyrone fooled into believing he was a real police officer. Nonetheless, the trio paid up to 'release' Tyrone under the pretext that Tyrone would have to hand himself in at a police station after the wedding ceremony.

Following their wedding, Jackie forced the couple to allow her to stay, offered to help Liz McDonald with the evening's work, and stole the couples honeymoon tickets. Pam then suggested they go to Blackpool instead, much to Tyrone's enthusiasm, but Molly's dismay.

In 2009, Molly embarked on an affair with Kevin. In 2010, Molly is to become pregnant, unsure as to whether the baby belongs to Tyrone or Kevin, who considers ending his affair due to Sally's cancer.
