Corrie's Todd Grimshaw returning with new face after Bruno Langley axe

Coronation Street’s Todd Grimshaw is making a sensational return to Weatherfield – with a brand new face.

Castings are already taking place to find a new actor for the role originally played by Bruno Langley.

He was axed from the soap in 2017 after being convicted of sexually assaulting two women in a bar in Manchester.

Following the case, ITV cancelled his contract and his popular character was written out of the show.

It was a major blow for Bruno, 37, who had played Todd on and off in the soap since 2001.

Viewers were told his character had “gone on the run” after assaulting a police officer.

Now, TV chiefs have decided to bring him back but with a new actor playing the role.

In recent months, there have been a few hints that Todd might be on the way back.

His mum Eileen (Sue Cleaver) told Fiz earlier this year: “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.”

And actor Daniel Brocklebank – whose character vicar Billy Mayhew had a gay relationship with Todd – teased how he is set to come face to face with “a blast from the past”.

Meanwhile, Bruno is now working as a professional portrait photographer and said of his new career: “I’m really happy being creative in this way.

“I’ve been taking time out to catch my breath, reassess what is important to me and to make myself a better person.”

Coronation Street is currently airing Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm on ITV
