Corrie actor Keith Duffy is to quit the soap to focus on Boyzone’s upcoming projects.

The Irish heartthrob, who plays the street’s Ciaran McCarthy, said he would not be renewing his contract when it ends in November.

Keith told The People: “I need to concentrate on being with the boys. We’ve got a lot coming up so I’ve decided they’ll take priority.?

He has only recently returned to the cobbled streets of Weatherfield after he took a long break from playing the Rovers’ barman.

The 35-year-old said the show’s bosses had tried to persuade him not to leave. He said: “I love the show so it’s been a hard decision. But I know it’s right.?

Boyzone are gearing up for a 12 date UK tour which will start early next year.
