Bruno Langley seeking help for alcohol issues

Share article:

"Coronation Street" actor Bruno Langley is seeking help for alcohol addiction after being sacked for sexually assaulting two women on a night out.

The 34-year-old former soap star pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault in court last month and has now opened up about how "ashamed" he feels and said he is getting help for his out of control drinking.

He told the Sunday Mirror: "I have no excuse, no one forced me to drink to such an extreme, but it is hard to explain why I would do anything as dreadful as that. It must have been awful for those women, and I am ashamed of myself. I'm truly sorry.

"I sincerely apologise to the women, from the bottom of my heart. I promise I will never do anything like that again.

"I accept my punishment because I know what I did was wrong. I'm not trying to attribute blame to anyone else other than myself.

"To treat women in the way I did is truly shocking. No one should be subjected to that. I was horrified when I heard what I'd done. My behaviour was dreadful. I'm so sorry for what has happened."

Bruno also claimed he has been on a "downward spiral" for some time and this has made him see how bad things had gotten.

He said: "I've been on a downward spiral for some time but only this made me realise it.

"I've been living way too fast for too long. I lost sight of what's important and it's only become apparent now.

"I wasn't particularly happy. I'm still trying to work out the reason why. I never acknowledged it as a problem until this happened. I've started going to see a counsellor and been attending AA meetings and that's helped. In fact, I started going straight away, before I was called for the meeting with ITV because I was so ashamed of my actions that night.

"I knew I needed help. It's helped me look back and realise I was drinking every day. Blackouts became normal.

"Alcohol has been a problem for at least two years. I was drinking everything - spirits, beer, wine."
