'I still miss Ashley Peacock'

It's been six years since Steven Arnold left Coronation Street, but the actor admits he still misses his much-loved character Ashley Peacock.

The actor played the loveable butcher's son for 15 years until he perished in a tram crash inferno in 2010.

Steven is set to take centre stage in new play Broken Strings, but he admits he'll always think fondly of his long-term character.

''I'll always have a special place in my heart because I played him for so long,'' Steven said.
