Former Coronation Street star Charlie Condou is flogging off his old clothes online – after his new play was postponed `again’.
The actor, who played hospital sonographer Marcus Dent in the ITV soap for seven years, told fans he really would like a job’ and will accept anything’.
Charlie, 48, who was doctor Ben Sherwood in Holby City, had been looking forward to a return to theatre work when the coronavirus hit last year (2020).
Since then his play has been put on hold.
While many TV shows – including Corrie – have managed to continue filming with social distancing measures in place most theatres across the UK have remained closed.
They are likely to stay shut until summer as the virus is known to spread quicker indoors.
Dad-of-two Charlie is now flogging off his wardrobe on second-hand designer clothing site website Depop.
He is advertising five sweaters for £245. The most expensive is a `brand new never worn Ralph Lauren 100% cashmere jumper in electric blue’ which the star is selling for £80.
