Soap star Will Mellor has insisted he's set to stick around on the cobbles
Will Mellor insists he won't be easy to get rid of from 'Coronation Street'.
The 45-year-old actor plays the villainous Harvey in the ITV soap, but after his character was arrested on the show, Will rubbished the suggestion it might be the last fans see of him on the cobbles.
Will wrote on Twitter on Wednesday night (07.04.21): "Thanks for all your comments on @itvcorrie tonight! [thumbs up emoji] (sic)"
In response, one of Will's followers asked him: "Is it your last appearance kidda ? #SpoilerAlert (sic)"
But Will – who has previously starred in shows such as 'Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps' and 'Hollyoaks' – quickly shot down the idea.
He wrote in response: "Can’t get rid of me that easy!!! [winking emoji] (sic)"
Last month, Will revealed that himself and Ralf Little want to become a "late-night Ant and Dec".
The actor and Ralf, 41 – who previously starred together in 'Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps' – dream of turning their podcast into a late-night chat show.
Speaking about their ambitions, Will explained: "We’re trying to expand the podcast onto TV, our own chat show with a pub and a band. It will be like a grown-up, late-night Ant and Dec. With a few beers!"
Will's dad, Bill, passed away in April last year, and the actor admits that his death has given him a new perspective on his life and his career.
He explained: "After losing my dad I want to be positive, do whatever comes my way, have some fun experiences and not worry about what anyone else thinks. I want to make him proud."
And after joining the cast of 'Coronation Street', Will can't wait to see what the rest of 2021 has to offer.
He said: "This year has started off well with 'Corrie', so let’s see what else happens!"
