Dennis has held down the role of Michael Rodwell on the ITV soap for just over two years.
‘Coronation Street’ actor Les Dennis has announced that he’s quitting the long-running ITV soap, and promises that his character Michael Rodwell is being set up for a “very dramatic exit” later this year.
The 62 year old actor and former ‘Family Fortunes’ presenter joined the popular soap in 2014, playing the incompetent burglar, who won the heart of his victim Gail, whom he later married. With his character’s departure, fans are speculating whether his long-standing feud with Pat Phelan will end up in murder, or whether the door will be left open for a future return.
