Johnny Briggs, who played Mike Baldwin in Coronation Street, has died


Johnny Briggs, who played Mike Baldwin in Coronation Street, has sadly passed away at the age of 85.


His family said he died peacefully after "a long illness, with family by his side" and asked for privacy to "remember the wonderful times we had".

Briggs was made a MBE in the New Year's Honours in 2006, the year his character was killed off from ITV soap.

Baldwin's affair with Deidre Barlow and his feud with her husband, Ken, were a long-running ratings hit for the show.
