I’m A Celebrity: Simon Gregson says he wants to live a healthier life

Coronation street legend Simon Gregson sparked a scene as his co-stars left by partially topless and dancing on nightclub furniture – attracting the attention of unimpressed dancers.

The 47-year-old TV actor – who has played Steve McDonald in the ITV series since 1989 – is one of many cast members in the 28-year-old Alexandra Mardell’s film.

The young actor and actress plays father and daughter onscreen – with Alexandra giving up the soap this year after making her screen debut as Emma Brooker in 2018.

But it seems Simon was the center of attention again when the Corrie members went out to Manchester in February to bring Alexandra off the field.

The scene has been shared by The Sun on Sunday shows that Simon looks a little worse when he’s in a nightclub.

Music vibrated across the packed club floor while a camera captured the soap star standing topless on top of a table.

Another man, believed to be a resister, tried in vain to coax the Corrie star down – who initially resisted.

Loud music and thrill-seeking club people make the sound difficult to decipher, however, it has been suggested that Simon shouted “f**k you” at the player.

The footage also shows the guard grabbing Simon’s naked arm as he tries to pull him to the ground, while the actor shrugs and looks displeased.

Meanwhile, a witness told The Sun that Simon was simply “swept up” with the dinner parties, saying: “Obviously he had a good night and hung out with a lot of the cast and Corrie’s crew.

“But at the end of the night, Simon clearly thought jumping up and down topless was a good idea. He’s on a piece of furniture that uses it as some kind of makeshift stage.

“The crowd laughed and cheered, with a lot of people appreciating him, and most people there saw the funny side. But some club members also shouted abuse at him, which was unnecessary. “

When Simon agreed to come down, the venue staff asked him to put his clothes back on.

He was then told to leave the venue – and the actor is said to have left without fuss.

The embarrassing scene is said to have taken place at Albert’s Schloss bar in Manchester’s Deansgate area on February 18.

The Mirror has reached out to the ITV soap actor’s representative for comment.

Meanwhile, Alexandra took to social media after the eventful night to thank her co-stars for their support and give her well wishes.

She wrote on Instagram: “Facial pain from laughing and hardly any pictures is a sign of a wild night! Can we do it again?
