Corrie’s Simon Gregson plans to ‘carry on’ drinking despite battles with booze

Corrie star Simon Gregson plans to “carry on” boozing despite admitting his problems with alcohol in the past.

The actor, who has played Steve McDonald for 30 years, previously opened up about his battles with the bottle during his early days on the soap.

But yesterday the cobbles veteran worried followers on Twitter by posting: “I’ve now decided after years of drinking and making a fool of myself plus of course the health implications of such debauchery, I’m gonna carry on.”

Many fans were concerned. One wrote: “Be careful my wife was not a big drinker now she has liver cirrhosis and is on 20 tablets a day. We both gave up five years ago.”

Simon, 45, revealed back in 2014 how he struggled with his boozing in the 90s. He admitted he was “drinking to forget” as depression took hold and he received a drink-drive ban in 2007.

He said: “I didn’t like being famous. I didn’t like what came with it.”

But he revealed in 2014 he had turned his life around and is now married to Emma Gleave with three children.
