Corrie wants Bruno Langley back full time

Coronation Street bosses want Bruno Langley to return to the soap on a full-time basis.Langley, 24, who plays Todd Grimshaw in the Manchester-based soap, has recently returned for 12 episodes to feature in the wedding storyline concerning his onscreen brother Jason (Ryan Thomas) and Sarah Platt (Tina O'Brien).He first appeared in the programme in 2000 and departed four years later. He has starred in Doctor Who and Dalziel And Pascoe since leaving the show.Corrie's executive producer Kieran Roberts told The Sun: "We’ve been very impressed with Bruno's performances and the writers will be coming up with ideas to bring Todd back."He’s a terrific actor and it would be great for the Grimshaws to have him back for good. There’s a lot of scope for storylines for Todd because of his history with Jason, Eileen and Sarah."Ryan Thomas backs the move to get Langley to return to the cobbles.He commented: "I talked to Bruno about this while we were making the documentary Family Album: The Grimshaws and it makes sense for him to return. He's interested in the idea. "Jason and Todd have a great bond as brothers and after all family is what Corrie is all about. Jason has got past all the gay thing now - he’s not scared of it anymore - and he wants to see more of his brother."
