CORONATION STREET actor Michael Le Vell is ‘absolutely dying’ today after celebrating not being found guilty of child sex offences following a trial at Manchester Crown Court.
The 48-year-old actor was hunched up around a pint of Carlsberg this morning in a Manchester bar, where he is recovering from last night.
“I’m in the bits here.” he told Waterford Whispers News reporter Paddy Browne. “I can’t remember anything past eight o’ clock.”
“Was I talking to you last night?” he asked, while peering under his hand which was keeping his forehead warm.
“Ah man, who was that chick I was with, she couldn’t have been more than……”
Mr. Le Vell then made a dash for the bar restroom, but not before knocking over several bar-stools on the way.
The great grand son of eight, from Hale, Cheshire, who has been in the ITV soap for 30 years, faced 12 charges in all – five counts of rape, three of indecent assault, two counts of sexual activity with a child and two of causing a child to engage in sexual activity.
He was found not guilty of all charges by the court, before heading out on the piss for the night.
