Alan Bradley is a fictional character in the British soap opera "Coronation Street". He was played by Mark Eden.

He was famous for being a villain, first moving into the Street in 1986 to find his daughter, Jenny Bradley, who had run away after her mother had been hit and killed by a car. After that, he tried to trick Rita Fairclough, to whom there was an on-again, off-again attachment, into marrying him.

In 1988, he stole the deeds from Rita's house, and impersonated her dead husband Len Fairclough so he could mortgage her house. In 1989, he tried to kill her, and at the conclusion of his trial, his plea bargain resulted in his walking free that very day. He famously met his end after being hit and killed by a Blackpool tram. 26.93 million viewers watched the character meet his untimely demise in 1989. As of 2005, it it the 9th most-watched UK broadcast of all time.
