Who did Neil Bell play in Coronation Street?

Coronation Street fans might also know Neil for playing multiple roles in the ITV soap.

In 2001 and 2008 he appeared in an episode of Corrie as two separate characters.

Three years later in 2011, the star played Billy Matheson and was back again in 2020 as Todd Grimshaw’s ex-boyfriend Mick.

When Todd returned to Weatherfield, Mick turned up and told his mum Eileen that Todd owed him money.

In a very dramatic storyline, Eileen then tried to fake Todd’s death, but Mick found out the truth and threatened the family with a gun.

Gary Windass came round just in time and knocked Mick out, but the villain later returned and got revenge on Gary.

Things took a turn when Mick’s husband Erik turned up and revealed they had a daughter on the way.

Mick agreed to leave Todd alone and made his final appearance in 2021.
