It seems that barely a day goes by without news of another Coronation Street character waving goodbye to the cobbles. And this time it’s the turn of Michael Rodwell – Gail’s fifth husband!

Played by Les Dennis, Michael is rumoured to be making a dramatic exit from Weatherfield involving the soap’s evil villain Pat Phelan (played by Connor McIntyre). Oooh!

And while Les is happy to leave quietly, he is disappointed to be saying farewell to his Coronation Street family.

“Les was gutted when he found out Michael was being killed off,” a source revealed.

Will long-suffering Gail ever get a break?
