Simon Gregson to take time off from Corrie

It's all over the news today, and ITV News has also carried the story that Simon Gregson will be taking several months off due to illness.  He won't be in the live episode next week by prior arrangement. It's too soon to know how Steve McDonald will be written out of the show.

Simon Gregson has recently been involved in a storyline about depression and has himself had similar problems in the past so was anxious to portray Steve's illness properly. It is not known if his current illness is related nor how long he will be off screen.

I was shocked this morning when I read this...I am so sorry for Simon...I am sure that having his sweet little dog with him on set helped to some degree..... Your fans will greatly miss you....

I'll miss Steve -- it's strange, but I almost feel like I grew up with him. All the best to Simon and hopes for a speedy recovery.
