Coronation Street star Sam Aston has addressed whether he could quit his role as Chesney after 19-years on the long-running ITV soap.

The 28-year-old first appeared on the cobbles in 2003 and won the Best Newcomer at the National Television Awards a year later.

Aston appeared on Tuesday’s instalment of Loose Women alongside wife Briony Gardner where he was quizzed on his future.

Loose Women panellist Janet Street-Porter asked: “Is there any chance you could suddenly branch out and be somebody else or is that character and you so closely intertwined now?”

Sam replied: “I’ve played him for so long, but I’ve been lucky, because I’ve had so many storylines over the years that they always test you and it’s a new thing to sink your teeth into.

“So, I’ve not really entertained the idea right now. I don’t know, maybe not.”

Sam married his childhood sweetheart, Briony, in 2019 and the couple welcomed their first son, Sonny James into the world a year later.

The couple are now expecting their second child.

Coronation Street airs on ITV1 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
