‘Coronation Street’ fans will be seeing more of Kevin Webster in the coming 12 months, as actor Michael Le Vell has signed a new deal, according to reports.

The Weatherfield veteran has agreed terms on a new contract, which sees his current agreement extended by soap bosses - and a huge pay increase.

The Sun reports that the actor met with ITV bosses to discuss the matter, and they were reportedly pleased with the progress he has made since returning to the show after an extended break in 2014.

During his time off, Michael went to rehab to seek help for alcohol addiction, and though he has admitted to drinking in moderation since then, a source close to the actor tells the paper that he’s “steadied that ship”.

Michael has been involved in a number of key storylines this year, and his on-screen girlfriend Anna Windass was at the centre of the October drama.

Following her burns injuries, Kevin has been doing his best to assist with her recovery.
