Brian Packham to leave Coronation Street later this year

Comments (1)

Brian packham.jpgITV have confirmed that popular Corrie character Brian Packham will leave the soap later this year. Actor Peter Gunn, who plays hapless school headteacher Brian, has been told that his contract will not be renewed.

The Sun are quoting an ITV spokesperson as saying: "Peter will leave at the end of his current contract. The decision is purely storyline-driven. Peter is a great actor who has made the character of Brian Packham a joy to watch."

Brian arrived in the Street in 2010 and quickly established a very popular relationship with dizzy seamstress Julie Carp (Katy Cavanagh). It seems an odd move to remove such a popular character after such a short period of time, is the one of the first victims of new producer Stuart Blackburn? It would seem so.
