Coronation Street’s Todd Grimshaw ‘RETURNING to soap as castings take place to replace disgraced actor Bruno Langley’… after his sexual assault conviction

Coronation Street character Todd Grimshaw is ‘set for a return to the cobbles with a new actor’, after original star Bruno Langley was axed in 2017 following his sexual assault conviction.

According to the Daily Star, castings are taking place to find a new actor for the role played by Bruno on-off between 2001 and 2017.    

Doctor Who star Bruno, 37, was axed from Coronation Street in 2017 after being convicted of groping two women on a drunken night out.

The actor pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault at a hearing in November 2017, and was given a 12-month community order, including 40 days of rehabilitation activity and to submit to a curfew.

He offered a tearful apology for his actions, and has since said he is attending therapy session and alcoholic anonymous meetings.

Back in 2017, Todd was written out with viewers told he had ‘gone on the run’ after assaulting a police officer.

Todd’s return to the cobbles has apparently been hinted at several times in 2020, with his mother Eileen (played by Sue Cleaver) saying: ‘Every Mother’s Day or birthday it’s the same. I think this will be the time I hear from him but I never do of course.’

Daniel Brocklebank, who plays vicar Billy Mayhew, who had a romance with Todd, has also said he’s set to encounter ‘a blast from the past.’

A Coronation Street representative declined to comment to MailOnline.

Meanwhile, Bruno has now found work as a portrait photographer and takes home £65 for a four hour shoot.

Friends of the actor told The Mirror that he is hoping to kick-start a career as a writer after losing his acting work on the small screen.  

At the time of his conviction, Bruno told The Sunday Mirror: ‘I’ve been living way too fast for too long… My drinking had escalated. The wheels fell off. I wasn’t particularly happy… I’ve started going to see a counsellor and been attending AA meetings and that’s helped.

‘I have no excuse, no one forced me to drink to such an extreme, but it is hard to explain why I would do anything as dreadful as that. It must have been awful for those women, and I am ashamed of myself. I’m truly sorry.

‘I sincerely apologise to the women, from the bottom of my heart. I promise I will never do anything like that again’, he added at the time.
