Andrew Lancel played Frank Foster in Coronation Street

Former Coronation Street actor Andrew Lancel has been charged with historical child sex offences, police have said.

The 42-year-old, who played Frank Foster in the ITV soap, faces five counts of indecent assault on a child under 16.

Mr Lancel, from Gateacre in Liverpool, was charged on Friday under his real name Andrew Watkinson.

Merseyside Police said he had been bailed to appear at South Sefton Magistrates' Court on 19 December.

Mr Lancel appeared in Coronation Street from January 2011 until March this year.

He is currently playing the lead role of Brian Epstein in Liverpool in the play Epstein: The Man Who Made The Beatles, and is scheduled to head the cast in the pantomime Sleeping Beauty at the city's Echo Arena.

A teenage actor from EastEnders has been arrested in connection with an alleged sex assault.

Joshua Pascoe, who plays troubled teen Ben Mitchell in the soap was questioned by detectives and released on bail.

The 16-year-old attended Wimbledon police station in South London on Thursday.

After unrelated allegations of bullying, he was suspended from stage school Italia Conti, in Islington, North London, in March.

Joshua was nominated for 'Villain of the Year' at this year's British Soap Awards but lost out to Coronation Street actor Andrew Lancel (Frank Foster).

His mother Sheree, 48 is separated from his father - Joshua lives with his father, Gary, a builder in Sutton, South London.

'His mum is distraught. He's only 16, so his arrest is very upsetting for the whole family,' a source told The Sun. ... sault.html
