Coronation Street star Sally Webster, age 48, has made the following unequivocal statement in support of fellow co-star Michael le Vell who was recently arrested on a rape allegation: “I have known him for 25 years and am right behind him.”
Le Vell, age 46, was arrested following an allegation by a teenage girl that the star raped her when she was just a girl. Le Vell is currently out on bond and vehemently denies any wrong-doing in connection with the teenager. Le Vell plays “Kevin” on the popular soap opera and has been starring on the show for 28 years.
The married father of two is said to be in a “state of shock” regarding the rape charge. Two other Coronation Street co-stars, Helen Flanagan and Brooke Vincent, have similarly expressed their support for Le Vell and his integrity. Le Vell has been embroiled in this criminal drama since his arrest back on September 29.
