Coronation Street actor Maximus Evans has been praised for his performance as a villain on the cobbles but the star has made the surprising move of returning to drama school. 

Maximus has played Corey Brent on the ITV soap for more than two years but will be bowing out soon with Abi Franklin (Sally Carman) set out to kill his character for murdering her son Seb (Harry Visinoni). 

In a teaser of what’s to come, Maximus finds himself on the backfoot as he gets caught up in the perfect storm of Abi’s vengeance, a storm and a sinkhole. 

During his appearance on Monday’s Good Morning Britain, Maximus remained coy about his departure, only to say that he ‘has filmed an ending’. 

He recalled of the epic stunt: ‘It was a very cold week on set, me and Sally Carman were down in a sinkhole all week. It was just a lot going on I think, that’s why it’s the biggest event that’s happened since the tram crash. It was great to film and a good experience. 

‘I literally didn’t know what to expect, we’re literally doing about four scenes back to back.’

Maximus revealed he was originally only booked in to appear in two episodes but his brief stint turned into a two-year contract. 

‘I was supposed to be a date for Asha and now I’m a murderer, I didn’t expect that at all,’ he told Richard Madeley and Ranvir Singh. 

When asked what’s next on the cards, Maximus shocked the hosts by revealing: ‘I’ve actually started a drama school, I’m at Guildhall currently. I wanted to train beforehand. 

‘I wanted to get my degree beforehand and now I’ve gone back to get it and I want to further my training.’ 

An impressed Richard remarked: ‘It’s clearly not gone to your head. 

‘Good for you. You’re a good bloke, nice to see you. And you’re not a villain.’ 

Meanwhile, Ranvir was particularly taken by Maximus’ name and told him: ‘Great name, sounds like a Hollywood name, don’t you think? It’s got Hollywood written all over it.’ 

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am, while Coronation Street airs weeknights on ITV.
