    Default Craig Charles

    Craig Charles’ early career was influenced by his childhood on a Liverpool housing estate. His poetic social commentary led him to performing live in the company of other poets such as Roger McGough and Adrian Henri. He later joined the alternative comedy circuit which in turn led to appearances on many satirical radio and television programmes of the eighties.

    Craig can be seen in Corry at the moment!

    Got the series on Vid, gave up buying them again on DVD Brilliant fun is Red Dwarf.

    There was once a time I knew everything there was to know about it. Now sadly, I don't have the time to watch them much

    Coronation Street actor Craig Charles has been suspended from the soap after pictures of him apparently smoking crack cocaine were published in a newspaper.

    Pictures in the Daily Mirror allegedly showed the television star taking the drug in the back of a car during a journey from London to Manchester.

    A spokeswoman for Coronation Street said Charles had met producer Steve Frost to discuss the press reports and was advised of the suspension.

    The 41-year-old, who plays cabbie Lloyd Mullaney, was suspended with immediate effect pending further investigations, the spokeswoman said.

    "No immediate decision has been taken on the length of the suspension as further inquiries need to be made," she said. "Craig has no comment to make to the press at this stage," she added.

    Anything to say about this or celebrity drug taking in general?

    I feel that Corry bosses should not sack him for this, if they did, well, a lot of Professional footy players, models, fellow actors, musicians should have the same fate. Bet that would'nt happen though.

    Kate Moss seems to have come out better for it but there's no way he will.

    Those guys were fired just as the media was beginning to push the boundaries of decency and taste. Now of course the papers are full of all kinds of lowlife, Pete Dougherty especially, injecting heroin and does anyone one flicker an eye lid?

    Remember Brian Harvey getting sacked from East 17 and the troubles he has had since? Poor fella was being honest and saying he took ecstacy, of course thats nothing these days.

    Pete Doherty injects other people who are on concious, sets up his own supermodel girlfriend and has done time for burglaries and assaults. Little bit more than a junkie. But the media love him and its the only reason hes famous. If he got clean he would disappear.

    Injustice to Brian Harvey over ectasy tabs, even though i can't stand him, but likes of Liam Gallagher, Noel and Robbie Williams get praised for being honest when they admit to taking coke. Considering people tend to fight more on Coke and hug you to death when on pills.

    But is it anybodys business what a celeb does out of hours? As long as there not harming anyone? People from Doctors and Lawyers to Factory workers and call centre workers do recreational drugs, should they be fired even thought there work is not affected?

    Really should of started a new thread as its gone off topic. Do apologise.

    Yes it is 'anybodies' business if these celeb wallahs do the hard drugs. Even more so if young pups look up to these 'people'.

    Exclamation Craig Charles

    The media should be charged with promoting the use of drugs thats all we
    hear and read from them they even give all instuctions how to take them they
    are just as evil as the drug dealer,who wants to see Katie Moss backside while snorting the white line on the hard shoulder on a motorway.

    you are spot on there fergie...

    but imagine how many papers they sold...

    oh and how much ££££££ the driver of the limo got..

    It's and all too familliar senerio in this day and age media interest is off the scale and people want to know all the sordid little secrets of "The" celebrity.

    Ahh well Charles has another nail in his celebrity coffin... then again I dont think this will be too big of a problem he did bounce back after going to jail for "That" alleged rape. Even though he was cleared of all charges he could have quite easily disappeared to nothingness but he bounced back.
