Les Dennis has signed to Coronation Street for another year, the actor said today on live TV.
Les, who plays Michael Rodwell, was interviewed on This Morning along with Oliver Farnworth, who plays Andy. Les confirmed that he's signed up to Corrie for another 12 months.
Les and Oliver are currently on a Corrie break to star in a stage show in Liverpool. You can read more on that here.
On leaving Corrie for his break, he says this about his on-screen character: "Michael kind of disappears in the next few weeks because he's going to Brighton while Les is going to do a play!"
