Coronation Street producers are keen for actor Bruno Langley to return to the soap permanently, according to The Sun.

Langley – who played Todd Grimshaw – is back for 12 episodes to act as best man at the wedding of Sarah Platt to his screen brother Jason.

However, show bosses are so impressed with his performance that they are now said to be thinking of ways of bringing him back to Weatherfield on a permanent basis.

“He’s a great actor and it would be great for the Grimshaws to have him back for good,” executive producer Kieran Roberts told the paper.

“There’s a lot of scope for storylines with Todd because of his history with Jason, Eileen and Sarah.”

The actor played Todd for four years, leaving in 2004 after a storyline in which Sarah lost their baby after discovering he was gay. Since then he’s been seen on the small screen in Doctor Who and Dalziel and Pascoe.

The idea of bringing him back to the show also has the seal of approval from Ryan Thomas, who plays Jason.

“I talked to Bruno about this while we were making the documentary Family Album: The Grimshaws and it makes sense for him to return. He’s interested in the idea,” he said.

“Jason and Todd have a great bond as brothers and after all family is what Corrie is all about.”
