No Coronation Street return for Les Battersby

In the last week or so there's been an online petition by a fan of Bruce Jones to get him back onto Coronation Street as Les Battersby.

Coronation Street Producer Steve Frost sacked Bruce Jones from the show in 2007. Bruce was sacked after allegations of a foul-mouthed rant against his Corrie cast mates. In the statement issued by ITV at the time, it said: "The character of Les will not be seen back on screen".

In Bruce Jones' autobiography 'Les Battersby and Me' he claims he was set up by two News of the World journalists after they conned him into discussions about possible work in Dubai. 

A spokeswoman for the soap told the Daily Post: “There are currently no plans to bring back the character of Les Battersby.”

That is too bad.....Leanne certainly could do with a member of her family to return to the cobbles...she really has no one to turn to for moral support these days...especially with Simon being a nasty little son....

Janice or Toyah would be great returns...or maybe a 'new' family member to be written in ??

Les, last of the great nut jobs! Bring him back.

Bruce Jones is a troll. It was probably him who was promoting the petition - his own #1 fan!

Strange this petition should suddenly appear, just after he announced he was living on the dole and has no money.
