Darryl Morton is portrayed by former Grange Hill actor Jonathan Dixon.



Darryl first appeared onscreen 18th March 2007. He lived in the shed of the garden of No. 6. He has been in trouble with the law for several motoring offences, and was horrified when twin sister Mel said she planned to join the police. Soon after his arrival he struck up a close friendship with next door neighbour David Platt (Ironically his real life childhood friend).

On 16th September 2007, Darryl's friend Stig asked him to look after some ecstasy tablets. Afraid that his dad would find them, he asked David Platt to look after them, but he hid them in one of his neice's dolls. However, when Bethany swallowed one, David decided to protect his friend and bailed Darryl out by taking the blame for possession. The storyline also received some criticism. After a brief flirtation in the Rovers with barmaid Lauren Wilson, Darryl began dating her. After a few dates of playing hard to get, they began seeing each other on a more regular basis. He often paid for their dates and drinks, even though Mel told him that his money was the only reason she was interested. Their involvement with each other came to an end when Lauren became angry with him having no money, and said they were never an item. Jerry collapsed on 27th August 2008 and went into care on 31st August, where Darryl and the rest of the family were told that Jerry was still alive and has a high chance of staying that way, but also that he may die. Amber Kalirai seems to have become close to Darryl.

His dad Jerry left coronation street to go to Spain, but Darryl stayed behind to run the shop with Teresa.

Darryl started going out with Amber, but they where caught in bed together by Amber's dad Dev on 17th October 2009 and Dev threw him out.

In September 2009, Dev paid Darryl to stay away from Amber and go to Spain to live with his dad. Darryl agreed, but got rid of the cheque after changing his mind, but thanks to his mum Teresa, she told Amber, who left to go back to University.

On the 16th October 2009, Darryl decided to go to Spain, so left the street.

Miscellaneous information

Darryl is the less serious-minded of the Morton twins, Darryl can be just plain daft, lazy and is closest to his twin sister Mel. In the interview with Digitalspy Jonathan went on to confirm this, speaking of his character he said: I don't think he's really that snidey and dark. Just your classic teenage lazy boy... He's mainly close to Mel, his twin sister, they're very close, as much as they do get down each others' necks.

Darryl was supposed to be leaving with the rest of the Morton clan. However, in a recent interview with the Liverpool Echo, Michael Starke who plays his father Jerry revealed they had kept his character on as "his character links in with David Platt".

Behind the scenes

During the casting for Darryl Morton different actors were called in for auditions for the role. Jonathan Dixon revealed in an interview with Digital Spy that he was called back through five stages of auditioning and eventually got down to the last two where he had to audition against a long term friend. During each stage of audtioning the hopefuls had to audition as sets of twins. Jonathan continually met fellow cast member Emma Edmondson who plays his onscreen sister Mel Morton. In the final audtion the two were paired up, and went on to be cast as twins Mel and Darryl.

After Darryl's he was in the background, and not much known about him. There was question about his and the rest of his family's popularity with the viewing public. In April 2007 it was announced that the character would be involved in a heavy marijuana smoking scene with Vernon Tomlin. It caused controversy, and the soap's executive producer Kieran Roberts stated that: "Not all stories are to the taste of all our viewers. But the vast majority of the time we get it right. We do not set out to shock and sensationalise. Although the scene didn't air eventually, there was a milder scene at the Morton's housewarming party where Vernon took on a mellow disposition after smoking a joint Darryl gave him.
