Nigel Havers to reprise his role as con-artist Lewis Archer on 'Coronation Street'

Former Coronation Street star Nigel Havers is set to reprise his role as con man Lewis Archer on ITV1 soap 'Coronation Street'. The gentleman escort was last seen in August 2010 after swindling Audrey Roberts (Sue Nicholls) in order to pull a scam at the bookies.

Lewis left the cobbles after having a fling with Deirdre Barlow (Anne Kirkbride ) in order to pull off the scam stopping short of scamming Audrey when his conscience took over him. However, today the official website has confirmed that Nigel will be reprising his role as dastardly Lewis.

Talking about the character's return, the official website said: ''With Lewis about to return to Weatherfield, is there more heartbreak ahead for Audrey or could things finally be looking up?"
