Nigel Havers staying on the Street?
Nigel Havers plays Lewis Archer in Coronation Street
Coronation Street bosses are reportedly considering signing up Nigel Havers as a full-time member of the cast.
The 62-year-old made a cameo as charming conman Lewis Archer in 2010, who played Rita Sullivan and Audrey Roberts off against each other in a bid to steal their cash. Nigel is currently making a second guest appearance as Lewis, who is back on the Street and who has promised Audrey that he is a changed man and his feelings for her are real.
The Sun reports that Corrie bosses are thinking about signing up Nigel full time so that Lewis and Audrey can settle down together.
However, Nigel has apparently signed up to star in Jack And The Beanstalk for six weeks in December. This would mean Lewis would have to be written out of the soap while Nigel goes off to do panto.
Audrey has just suffered a heart attack but Lewis has been there to support her through it, helping convince her family that he really has changed.
