Coronation Street star Charlie Condou sparks mystery with tweet about ‘nastiest celeb’

Fans have begged him to name names!

Coronation Street star Charlie Condou has revealed the nastiest celebrity he’s ever met was one he had to work with for a long time.

The actor played Marcus Dent in the ITV soap between 2007 and 2014 – although nothing suggests the nasty celeb was a Corrie employee.

Charlie is a well-known social media user and kicked off a conversation between his followers about the nicest – and nastiest – celebs they’ve had to deal with.

What did Charlie Condou say?

He named his Good co-star Viggo Mortensen as the nicest, but wouldn’t be drawn on the nastiest.

He posted: “Who’s the nicest celeb you’ve met? And who’s the nastiest?

Nicest – Viggo Mortensen was the absolute best when I worked with him.

Mystery surrounds the post because Charlie wouldn’t be drawn on naming who it is.

Even when people begged he stayed silent.

“I worked as a waiter for a month or so and people recognised me all the time,” he said.

“Somebody said to me: ‘Ooh, aren’t you embarrassed?’ I thought, no, because I don’t really consider being a waiter a less of a job than being an actor.

“You get paid less and it’s harder work but there’s nothing about it that’s inferior.”
