John Kerr has been a writer on Coronation Street since 2009 contributing 154 scripts to date, including four double episodes as a co-writer.

Under the name of "John Sandford", he was originally an actor and was best known for appearing as Nat Simpson in Brookside from 1996 to 1997 in a memorable storyline regarding brother-sister incest. He also appeared in Grange Hill, The Bill and Doctors.
