Talking about leaving the soap after 10 years of playing Lloyd, Craig says: ‘I don’t really want to leave. I have had a fantastic time on Corrie but I can’t keep asking for time off. Coronation Street will go on but they wouldn’t make another Red Dwarf without me. I can’t let the other lads down.’
He says he'll miss his on-screen cabbie partner Steve McDonald, played by Simon Gregson. 'I’m going to miss Simon so much," he says. And he says that he doesn't yet know how Lloyd will leave the show. ‘I don’t think they are going to kill me off. I don’t know. I hope not.’
Craig also talks about the death of his brother while he was in the Celebrity Jungle last year; the false accusation of rape and his past cocaine addiction.
It's a hard-hitting interview, well worth a read, and it's here.
