The actor will not appear in Coronation Street until the court case is adjourned.

An ITV spokesman said: “Given the serious nature of these charges, Michael Le Vell will not be appearing in Coronation Street pending the outcome of legal proceedings. It would not be appropriate for us to comment further at this time.”

Michael Le Vell who has played Kevin Webster in English soap, Coronation Street since 1983 has been charged with the assault of a child and sexual activity with children. The acts were believed to have been committed between 2001 and 2010.

The father of two was earlier accused of the sexual offences in September of 2011, vigorously denying the allegations at the time. In January 2012, the case was thrown out due to insufficient evidence.

On Thursday, Alison Levitt QC, Principal Legal Advisor to the Director of Public Prosecutions said: “I have very carefully reviewed the evidence in this case and I have concluded that there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest to charge Michael Robert Turner with a number of sexual offences.”

“I have authorised Greater Manchester Police to charge Mr Turner with nineteen offences, including the rape of a child.”

Mr Le Vell is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday, February 27.

  1. These are the ones being CAUGHT. Watch a documentary called “Sun, Sea and Satan”. The guy that was abused was mocked, saying he is a crackpot but just think about what has been all over the press recently?. Our safe as nails TV personalities sure fooled us all didn’t they?. How many more have smiled and given us false perceptions that we for some reason absorbed quite happily?. It’s sickening, rotten to the core and it’s a reason we need to give up on the destruction of our morality through television breaking the boundaries it should never have touched.

  2. Hung drawn and quartered already ?
    who will be next Laural and Hardy ?

  3. celebrities seem to think because they are famous they can do whatever they like

  4. Innocent till proven guilty
