Andy Whyment: 'I'll stay at Corrie forever'

By
Dancing On Ice contestant Andy Whyment has revealed that he wants to stay in Coronation Street for as long as possible.

The actor admitted that he loves playing Kirk Sutherland in the ITV1 soap and confessed he has no plans to continue skating once the competition ends

"I have been acting since I was eight. But with Corrie I will stay there as long as they will have me. I am into my 11th year and it is a great show. I would love it to be a job for life," Whyment told The Mirror.

"I have got so many close friends there, it is 25 minutes from where I live so I am home every night. It is a fantastic job. I have always loved playing Kirk.

"When Dancing finishes I won't carry on skating much. It would be nice if the kids [son Thomas, three, and one-year-old daughter Hollie] wanted to go, I could show them a few tricks, but I am not an amazing skater, even though I have come on leaps and bounds."

He added that he is doing a "Grease tune" on this week's Dancing On Ice, teasing that the wardrobe department may give him a wig to look like John Travolta.
