Daniel Brocklebank has revealed that he has signed a new one-year deal keeping him on Coronation Street until at least the end of 2021.
The 40-year-old made his Weatherfield debut as Billy Mayhew at the end of 2014 and has since become a key character on the cobbles, tackling storylines including drugs abuse as well as homosexuality in the church.
Billy is currently heavily involved in the storyline that will see his ex-boyfriend Todd return to the street after three years on the run.
Speaking to the Daily Star about his new deal, Brocklebank said: "I have just signed up for my seventh year on Corrie. It's fantastic. It's nice to get back to some normality."
