Writing on Twitter this evening (January 3), Condou told fans: "Thanks for messages today, I'm obviously very pleased to have signed my new Corrie contract. Lots of stories planned."

Condou made no comment on the main focus of The Mirror's report, which suggested that he and former on-screen partner Antony Cotton (Sean Tully) have fallen out.

A show source told the newspaper: "It is an open secret that Antony and Charlie do not see eye to eye. They are both very different people and whereas Antony is quite showbizzy, Charlie is quite quiet and down to earth. They simply rub each other up the wrong way."

A Coronation Street spokesperson today told Digital Spy that Condou and Cotton have "a great professional relationship on set" and denied rumours of a rift among the show's cast.

Condou returned to Coronation Street in 2011 and his character has recently embarked on a surprise relationship with Maria Connor (Samia Ghadie). Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
