Corrie star self-isolating over coronavirus fears able to return to work

The Corrie actor who self isolated after returning from a Coronavirus-hit country has been given the green-light to return to work, Mirror Online can reveal.

We told yesterday how the star self isolated after coming back from holiday on the advice of medics. But after speaking to health professionals this morning the actor, who never displayed any symptoms, has been cleared to return to the Cobbles.

A Corrie spokeswoman said: “The Coronation Street cast member referred to in reports this morning has been advised by health professionals that they are not required to self isolate, following this advice they will be returning to work when they are next scheduled to film.

"The initial personal decision was taken as a precautionary measure."

A source added: “The initial decision to stay away from work was taken on return from holiday whilst inquiries were made about the regions the cast member had visited during their trip.

"Following those investigations this advice has now been given freeing them up to return to work when next called.”

The actor had been advised to rest at home for two-weeks following a holiday abroad to an affected area.

The isolation period has meant writers have had to re-write some scenes but insiders say the disruption has so far been “minimal”.

A source previously revealed: "The actor spoke to health professionals after coming back home.

"They aren’t displaying any symptoms but were advised to self-isolate as a precautionary measure because of where they had been.

“We film six to eight weeks in advance so there has been room for manoeuvre.

"We’ve only had to write them out of a couple of scenes, while others can be shifted to the future.”

ITV chief Carolyn McCall said the channel had drawn up a “contingency plan by program genre”.
