Corrie's Simon Gregson defends Dominic Cummings again but regrets drunk rant

Coronation Street’s Simon Gregson has admitted he regrets ranting about Dominic Cummings on social media after having a few drinks – but still stands by what he said.

The Steve McDonald actor faced backlash after blasting critics of the Prime Minister’s chief adviser.

‘This discussion gives me the s**ts. Family first ALWAYS. Regardless,’ he wrote.

‘People have crawled through s**t , gun fire, climbing over dead friends to be with. Put your bullst away dick Ed’s [heads] coz you’d do the same. Plus back off press 2 Mtrs k**b sucks.’

He later seemed to distance himself from the comments, writing: ‘Ok I take it back to understand that we could all ways do that. So I hold my hands up and say. BD choice of words. But. Wouldn’t you? Fine line people. Let’s not be told but imagine.’

Simon added the next day: ‘Well sober me has no idea what drunk me was going on about. Time to maybe step away from the phone.’

Many have been left outraged, after making personal sacrifices to abide by the lockdown rules, including some people who have lost loved ones, without being able to visit to say goodbye.

Metro.co.uk has contacted reps for Simon for further comment.
