Coronation Street actor, Chris Fountain, says he is deeply ashamed of his rap video which he recorded a year ago and features violent language and references to rape.
The Bradford-born actor has been suspended from the soap after the video emerged online.
Here is an excerpt from the video which has been censored. ITV Calendar has chosen not to publish the entire recording, as some of the language is deemed too offensive. You may find some of the following content disturbing.
