Actor Les Dennis is quitting Coronation Street and is preparing for a dramatic exit storyline.

Dennis, who has played Michael Rodwell in the ITV soap since 2014, said he would "treasure" his stint on the show, but added it was the right time to go.

The 62-year-old explained: "As a lifelong fan of the show, playing Michael Rodwell in Coronation Street has been a dream come true.

"Becoming part of the ITV Coronation Street family has been a wonderful experience, and my decision was a hard one."

Show producer Kate Oates added: "We have worked on giving him a great story to ensure a fantastic and dramatic end to his time on the street."
