Bruno Langley has been charged with sexually assaulting two women – both on the same night.
The former Coronation Street actor faced an accusation from a woman in her 30s, who claimed he inappropriately touched her at a music venue on Swan Street, in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, and another lady in her 20s has now come forward to claim he assaulted her on the same night, October 1.
Bruno is due to appear at Manchester Magistrates Court on November 28.
A spokesman for the Crown Prosecution Service told Mirror Online: “The CPS authorised Greater Manchester Police on 29 October to charge Bruno Langley with two offences of sexual assault on a female on 1 October 2017.
“The charges relate to two complainants. He has been bailed to appear before Manchester City Magistrates Court on 28 November 2017.”
Following his arrest, the 34-year-old star announced he had quit his role as Todd Grimshaw in the ITV soap, and thanked the cast and crew for working with him over the past 17 years.
He said: “Sadly, I will no longer be working on Coronation Street.
“Acting on the show has been the fulfilment of a personal dream. Playing the role of Todd Grimshaw since I was 17 years old has been a huge part of my life, and an absolute honour.
“I would like to thank all of my friends who work on the show for their love, friendship and support during this extremely difficult period.”
While a show spokesperson has confirmed Bruno is “no longer contracted to Coronation Street”, it’s believed he will appear as Todd on screen until Christmas Eve because those scenes have already been filmed.
A source recently told Manchester Evening News: “Scenes featuring Bruno will continue to be screened until December 24. These were filmed before our inquiry started. Subsequent storylines beyond this point have been rewritten.”
