Coronation Street’s Michael Le Vell splits from lover – then heads to the pub

Corrie star Michael Le Vell split with his lover today – then headed to the pub.

The actor loaded the boot of his car outside the home he shared with Louise Gibbons just a week after he was arrested over a
domestic incident.

Le Vell, 53, who has stayed for the last few days in a £70-a-night Holiday Inn, collected his belongings while his fiancee Louise was away.

The star who plays mechanic Kevin Webster made several trips to a house nearby in Timperley, Cheshire.

Hours later he joined pals in a local pub.

Last week it emerged that the star fell down the stairs following an argument with someone else in Louise’s house.

He was taken to hospital by police and later arrested although no further action was taken.

This morning he loaded his bags and a large black suitcase in the boot of his Mercedes on the drive outside Louise’s house before heading off.

It is believed Le Vell has found another property several miles down the road.

Then later in the afternoon he joined pals in the pub where he enjoyed a couple of pints. Earlier in the week he stayed at a Holiday Inn not far from the ITV studios where Corrie is filmed.

He also went to The Alchemist bar in Salford’s Media City with several co-stars – including on-screen daughter Brooke Vincent – to enjoy a drink in the bank holiday sunshine.

Le Vell, who has been in Coronation Street for 35 years, has endured a difficult time in recent years.

He was cleared of child sex abuse allegations, has battled alcoholism and been declared bankrupt.

He popped the question to Louise, whom he met four years ago, after he said she had helped him turn life around.

A source said: “Clearly things are not good at the moment. He has been to-ing and fro-ing all week and he has turned up at this other place with bags.

“It doesn’t bode well. He has been done this road before.

“Let’s hope he can sort things out.”

Less than two weeks ago police were called to the home Le Vell shared with Louise, 42, and he was later arrested on suspicion of assault. She is said to have been at the house when he fell down a flight of stairs as he argued with somebody else at the property.

The actor was taken to hospital by officers and then spent the night at a Manchester police station before being released without charge.

Police said they treated it as a domestic incident and were not taking any further action.

Le Vell described it as a “silly row” that got out of hand.

After his latest arrest it was claimed he was on “very thin ice” after he missed a day of filming and could be facing the sack from his £250,000-a-year job.

But a Corrie source said: “Michael only missed one day of filming when he had only one scene to record.

“The scene was filmed without him as Coronation Street adapts to these occasions so his absence didn’t affect his fellow cast or crew. It’s also not true to say he’s ‘on very thin ice’ or that his role is in jeopardy.

“Michael has been filming with us this week as normal.”

In March it emerged Le Vell had been declared bankrupt owing a six-figure legal bill.

Today a spokesman for Coronation Street declined to comment.
