Coronation Street star Simon Gregson says he’s ‘frightened to death’ about his forthcoming wedding.

The actor, who plays Steve McDonald, is getting hitched to fiancee Emma Gleave in November.

He told Closer magazine: “I’m frightened to death. I get terribly claustrophobic in a crowded room, so I’m not looking forward to it.

“Hopefully after a couple of whiskies I’ll be fine, although Emma has banned me from drinking until after the ceremony!”

Steve has had five screen weddings in the soap, most recently to feisty Becky McDonald (Katherine Kelly).

Simon said of his screen snogs with Katherine: “Long meaningful kisses are all a bit embarrassing, but when Becky jumps on Steve and madly snogs him, it’s less of a real kiss, so the missus can watch it without getting jealous.”
