Coronation Street veteran Simon Gregson has been warned by the soap’s bosses to “be on his best behaviour”, according to reports.
The I’m A Celebrity star, 47 – who was the runner up on last year’s show– is thought to have been quizzed by police last week after a brawl broke out near Aintree racecourse.
In addition to this, Simon was reportedly asked to leave a club earlier this month after he danced topless on a table at his co-star Alexandra Mardell’s leaving do.
In light of his recent behaviour, Simon has allegedly been told to be “on his best behaviour” for the foreseeable future.
“Simon is one of Corrie’s longest-serving stars and is loved on set, but that doesn’t mean he has carte blanche to behave however he likes,” a source told The Sun.
“Bosses have told Simon his recent behaviour is not ok and it’s not a good look for the soap.
“They’ve warned him to clean up his act. Simon apologised and told them he’d be on his best behaviour from now on.”

Snaps taken on Friday appeared to show the 47 year old sitting in the back of a police van speaking to officers, as per The Mirror.
Confirming that a brawl took place by the racecourse, police told us: “We can confirm that Merseyside Police were in attendance at the Rocking Horse pub on Grand National Avenue, Aintree on Friday 8 April.
“At around 9.20pm we received a report two men were involved in an altercation inside the pub.
“No injuries were reported and the victim declined to make a formal complaint to police. Enquiries into the incident are ongoing.”
Simon first joined the cast of Coronation Street in 1989, and has gone on to become a fan favourite on the cobbles, but recently called for his character to leave Weatherfield.
In light of the ongoing drama with his on-screen daughter Amy Barlow, the actor told us: “My advice [for Steve] would be to go on holiday for a very long time and have a break. I think what he has to do is just watch it from the wings and be there for Amy if needs be. That’s the only thing he can do.”
