Richard Hawley, who plays Johnny Connor in Coronation Street, will be staying on the cobbles for another 12 months.
The Twitter account which is run in support of Richard Hawley today announced that Richard has signed a new contract to stay
on Corrie for another year.
It's good news for this fan. I like Johnny Connor a lot and think he adds a great deal to the show in terms of acting chops and character gravitas too.
