Bruno, who played Todd Grimshaw in the soap, appeared at Manchester Magistrates Court on the morning on November 28 to make his plea.

According to The Mirror, the 34 year old has now been sentenced by the court, and was handed a 12-month community order. He was also handed 40 days of rehabilitation activity as part of the order. 

Langley will also be subjected to a 12-week monitored curfew, and must wear an electronic tag.

The soap actor must sign the sex offenders’ register for five years and pay £250 in compensation to each victim. He wept in the dock as he heard the sentence. 

The actor, who played Todd Grimshaw in the ITV soap, admitted to assaulting a woman in her 30s, and another woman in her 20s, at a music venue in the city, on October 1.

The Manchester Evening News report he admitted to grabbing a woman’s crotch, while at Band on the Wall. Langley then grabbed a second woman ‘forcefully’ in an ‘intimate place’, the court heard.

After speaking to Probation services, the district judge decided to sentence Langley within the magistrates’ court, rather than to send to crown court for a different date.

The judge told him: “On that night your conduct was quite disgraceful.

“You now seem to accept you have a problem with alcohol.”

Langley, who is no longer in the ITV soap, was described as being a “man who has alcohol issues” by his lawyer, who argued that he was of “good character” with no previous convictions. 

Bruno played the first openly gay character on the ITV soap, and made his debut as Todd Grimshaw back in 2001.

He left the soap after the first allegation went public, releasing a statement before he was charged.

It read: “Sadly, I will no longer be working on Coronation Street. Acting on the show has been the fulfilment of a personal dream.

“Playing the role of Todd Grimshaw since I was 17 years old has been a huge part of my life, and an absolute honour.

“I would like to thank all of my friends who work on the show for their love, friendship and support during this extremely difficult period.”
