Michael Le Vell has returned to Coronation Street after he was 'completely exonerated' of child sex abuse claims.
Helen Flanagan – who made her name playing Rosie Webster in the show – took to her twitter account to praise the 47-year-old actor. She tweeted: 'Micheal Le Vell strongest man I have come across. Upmost respect. (sic)'.
Kym Marsh – who portrays Michelle Connor in Coronation Street – also used the social networking site to express her joy about the charges against him being dropped. She wrote: 'Fantastic news about Michael Le Vell having all charges dropped! I hope they make as much of this news as they did about condemning him.'
