CORONATION STREET ACTOR Bruno Langley has been charged with two counts of sexual assault in Manchester.

Greater Manchester Police said that Langley (34) – who plays Todd Grimshaw in Coronation Street – is due to appear at Manchester Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday 28 November.

He is charged after a woman was allegedly sexually assaulted at a music venue in Manchester.

Police received the report at about 1am on Sunday 1 October that a woman in her 30s had been sexually assaulted at a music venue on Swan Street in the Northern Quarter.

In a statement released at the weekend and carried in The Guardian, Langley said he would no longer be working on Coronation street.

“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 said he would make a full statement in due course when he was able to do so.
