Coronation Street actor Charlie Lawson was in tears as he opened up about suffering a stroke on stage.

Charlie, who recently returned to Corrie as Jim McDonald, was taken off stage when playing Detective Inspector Rebus in Edinburgh earlier this year.

The 59-year-old Northern Irishman suffered a mini-stroke on stage and was visibly confused.

Charlie appeared on BBC Breakfast this morning, where he revealed that he didn’t realise what had happened to him.
