Coronation Street’s Alan Halsall will be taking a short break from the ITV soap.
The Tyrone Dobbs actor issued a health update on Instagram on Wednesday as the actor smiled through the pain after he shared a photo from his bed with his leg placed in a cast.
The 41 year old told fans he had ACL reconstruction surgery, whereby the torn ligament is replaced with a tissue graft in his knee.
It has since been confirmed to Express Online that the actor will be taking a short break from Weatherfield as he continues his recovery.
A Coronation Street spokesperson told Express.co.uk: “Alan will be on screen in the coming weeks as we film two months ahead, and then he’ll be taking a short break whilst he recovers.”

“I have been told the surgery went really well.”
The soap star said he was heading in the right direction but the road to recovery would be long after undergoing the surgery last Friday.
