Craig quits street for return to space

Craig Charles is quitting Coronation Street after a decade to head back into outer space with Red Dwarf, ITV has confirmed.

Charles (50), who has played Weatherfield cab company owner Lloyd Mullaney for 10 years, is to reprise his role as Lister in two new series of the cult comedy show on comedy channel Dave.

He is the latest high-profile departure from Corrie after actress Alison King, who plays Carla Connor, announced she will be taking a break from the soap for "creative reasons" next year.
