Bruce Jones jokes about Corrie departure
Bruce Jones joked about being sacked from Coronation Street during a stand-up routine on Saturday night.

The 54-year-old actor, who was suspended from the soap in March and eventually dropped in May, was entertaining crowds on Blackpool's North Pier.

Commenting on his departure, Bruce quipped: "Sha**ing Cilla for six years meant I needed a break." He then added that Janice (Vicky Entwistle) was the true love of his character Les Battersby, rather than manipulative Cilla (Wendi Peters).

Jones insisted that he had been offered plenty of work since leaving the Street, but confirmed that he would be willing to make a return within "four or five years". Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
