Craig Charles has revealed that he is pleased with his latest Coronation Street storyline, describing the plot as a "challenge".

The actor's character Lloyd Mullaney is about to become further embroiled in the life of lap-dancer Cheryl Gray when he discovers that she is being abused by husband Chris (Will Thorp).

Speaking to Inside Soap, Charles explained: "Lloyd has really come to see Cheryl as someone he could settle down with, and he'd always face up to a nasty bully like Chris. Lloyd's not scared of the guy - but he should be.

"Chris is set to get a job on the Street in the near future, though I can't tell you what he'll be doing. I'm looking forward to the acting challenge it'll bring - it means great fun for me storyline-wise, but certainly not for Lloyd!"

Cheryl actress Holly Quin-Ankrah also recently praised the storyline, promising that there are "so many twists and turns" ahead. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
