Former star of Coronation Street, Bruno Langley, has admitted sexual assault against two women in a Manchester music venue. The assaults happened at popular venue Band on the Wall on 1st October. He had already resigned from his Coronation Street role once the serious allegations came to light.
The assaults were egregious. The actor was intoxicated at the time, and assaulted one woman in front of her husband. When his victim visited the toilet, she met another woman who had also been attacked.
The assaults come at a time when Britain and America are facing the consequences of decades of varied abuse by men in the entertainment industry.
