Corrie legend Johnny Briggs’s daughter 'stunned' at being left out of £550,000 will

CORRIE legend Johnny Briggs’s daughter said last night she is “stunned and heartbroken” at being left out of his £550,000 will.

Johnny, who died aged 85 in February, is said to have disowned drug user Karen after she gave her then 14-year-old daughter Class A narcotics.

His estate — plus US assets including a home in Florida — was split between his five other children instead

But Karen, 55, told The Sun she is now clean and that they made up in her dad’s final years.

Fighting back tears, she said: “He told me in 2018 that he wanted to give me some money but said, ‘If you put it up your nose or in your arm, how can I live with myself?

"But when I’m dead it won’t matter.’

“That’s when I last saw him, but we spoke on the phone regularly.”

She blamed family disputes for being snubbed in the will.

Twice-divorced Johnny played businessman Mike Baldwin for 30 years, earning £200,000 a year before leaving the soap in 2006.
