Coronation Street: What happened to Bruno Langley?

Bruno made his first on-screen appearance as Todd in 2001.

He was involved in numerous storylines during his time on the cobbles. This included Todd coming out as gay, the death of his premature son and also becoming the guardian of his boyfriend Billy’s goddaughter, Summer. Todd has often been regarded as a villain on the cobbles.

He continued to play the character on and off until 2017 when Bruno was axed from the ITV soap.

The actor had pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault, which happened in Manchester’s Band On The Wall venue in October 2017.

He avoided going to prison, but he was handed a 12-month community order. He was also told he must sign the sex offenders’ register for five years and pay his two victims £250 each.

In December of the same year, Bruno announced that he was seeking help for alcohol addiction and made an apology.

What is Bruno Langley doing now?

It was reported in 2019 that Bruno was working as a portrait photographer. According to the Mirror, the former actor worked at a studio charging £65 for a four hour shoot.

Later in the year, it was reported in The Sunday Mirror that he had been employed to snap pictures of teenagers, despite being on the sex offenders’ register.

A source close to Bruno told the publication: “He’s never taken pictures of under 18s without parents’ consent.

“It’s nothing to do with the 2017 incident – it’s a standard duty of care. Parents are naturally always present.”

Bruno soon spoke out about the negative reports himself on Twitter. He confirmed that he was working as a photographer now and had also taken time out to ‘reassess what’s important to him’ and ‘make himself a better person’.
