Michael Le Vell is eager to get back to work on 'Coronation Street' after taking a break from the soap to deal with his alcoholism
Michael Le Vell can't wait to get back to work on 'Coronation Street'.
The troubled soap star, who took a break from the show in March after admitting to using cocaine as he awaited trial for child abuse allegations, has revealed he will reprise his role as mechanic Kevin Webster in a "few weeks" and looks forward to reuniting with his cast mates.
He wrote on his Facebook page earlier this week: "Hi all, sorry not been on here for ages but ive had a few things to sort out. But im back now and im back to work in a few weeks, im so looking forward to getting back to the job i love and all the people there who are like my second family i love them all.
"And thank you all for the great support you have given me over some very hard times for me and my family."
The 49-year-old star is expected to return to screens in September after completing a three-week stint in rehabilitation for alcoholism earlier this year.
The actor was first written out of the soap last year pending the outcome of his trial and returned after being cleared of all charges in September.
However, his comeback was short-lived as Michael decided to seek help after meeting with 'Corrie' bosses over his cocaine admission.
