Coronation Street star Michael Le Vell has reportedly split from his wife of 25 years.

The actor, who plays Kevin Webster in the ITV1 soap, parted with Janette Beverley a few months ago - before he was accused of sexually abusing a schoolgirl.

"It's very sad, but they are estranged and have been for a while. This police investigation comes on top of everything else. It's been the worst time of Michael's life," a source told The Sun.

"It's been a terribly stressful time for both of them. Michael has always been brilliant as a husband and dad and has never courted the celebrity lifestyle. The fact that his marriage is on the rocks has come as a complete shock.

"Right now his mind is all over the place. He has co-operated fully with the police and will continue to do so until his innocence is proved. It's been the worst time of his life - but everything is out of his hands at the moment."

Beverley starred alongside Le Vell in Coronation Street when she played a character called Elaine Pollard in 1984.

Le Vell has vowed to clear his name after being arrested following the report of a historical offence. He recently returned to the Coronation Street set. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
