Coronation Street actor Michael Le Vell declared bankrupt

Coronation Street actor Michael Le Vell has been declared bankrupt.

The soap star, 53, has played garage mechanic Kevin Webster for three-and-a-half decades.

He was declared bankrupt on January 8 under his birth name, Michael Robert Turner, with the order updated last week to reflect his stage name.

Le Vell first joined Coronation Street in 1983 and quickly endeared himself to fans, who have followed the trials and tribulations of Kevin, from Brian Tilsley’s apprentice mechanic through to his stormy marriage to Sally, played by Sally Dynevor.

In 2013 Le Vell was cleared of child abuse charges at Manchester Crown Court.
