Antony Cotton, who stars as Sean Tully in 'Coronation Street', has revealed he works as a bingo caller in his spare time

'Coronation Street' star Antony Cotton moonlights as a bingo caller.

The 39-year-old actor, who's starred as Sean Tully in the ITV soap since 2003, has revealed he works in bingo halls in his spare time as a means of boosting his bank balance.

He told The Sun newspaper: "I love bingo. My character in 'Coronation Street' was a bingo caller for a while so I've done my fair share of visits to bingo halls.

"An audience is an audience - it doesn't matter if it's in a theatre or a bingo hall."

Last month, Antony caused chaos on the set of the show when he opened a cut on his head, which required medical attention.

The injury caused Antony to be written out of some planned scenes, meaning a hasty script re-write was required.

Meanwhile, another scene featuring Antony had to be pushed back to give him sufficient time for the wound to heal.

Reflecting on the injury, a source said at the time: "It was a nasty accident. One minute Antony was standing there, the next we heard him shout out.

"He was clutching his head, blood pouring through his fingers."
