Corrie actor leaves soap after internal inquiry
Coronation Street actor Bruno Langley is no longer a member of the cast following allegations of inappropriate behaviour towards a woman in a Manchester nightclub.
A spokesperson for ITV confirmed Langley, who has played Todd Grimshaw on and off since 2001, was no longer contracted to the long-running soap.
The 34-year-old, who played the show’s first openly gay character, has reportedly denied any wrongdoing.
Langley said in a statement: “Sadly, I will no longer be working on Coronation Street. Acting on the show has been the fulfilment of a personal dream.
“Playing the role of Todd Grimshaw since I was 17 years old has been a huge part of my life, and an absolute honour.
“I would like to thank all of my friends who work on the show for their love, friendship and support during this extremely difficult period.”
He added: “I will make a further statement in due course, and when I am able to do so.”
The actor’s contract ended on Thursday after an internal inquiry over the claim made by the woman, according to a source.
Langley appeared in the soap for three years from 2001 before leaving and occasionally appearing in the show until he returned as a regular once more in 2013.
The actor has also appeared in Doctor Who, Dalziel and Pascoe and in theatre productions such as Calendar Girls and The Mousetrap.
