Corrie star 'delivers racist rant'

Coronation Street star Bruce Jones reportedly delivered a racist rant after spending the afternoon drinking in a Cheshire pub.

The 54-year-old actor, who plays layabout Les Battersby, is currently serving a six-week ban from the soap after allegedly making "inappropriate comments" in a public place.

Ex-policeman Chris Prodomis, 42, claims to have heard Jones rage about phone workers "not speaking English properly" after he called directory enquiries from the Royal Oak in Disley, Cheshire.

However, Jones is said to have told the Coronation Street's production team that he only drank two pints and did not make any racist remarks.
