CORONATION Street star Mikey North has revealed his sleepwalking nightmare after he once woke in the street with his duvet.
The soap actor, 31, spoke about suffering from the sleep condition – which sees people walk and perform other complex tasks while asleep – on Lorraine earlier today.
Speaking to stand-in host Rochelle Humes, Mikey – who plays character Gary Windass – said: “I’m a really bad sleep walker. Horrendous sleep walker.
He continued: “I’ve been known to leave the house.
“I’ve been known to try and let myself in next door in my pants.
“I’ve woken up on the street with my duvet.
“So if you live on my street watch out. I’m coming for you next.”
Rochelle joked: “We’re apologising now if you live on his street.
Mikey was on the programme to discuss his appearance on the new All Star Driving School.
It comes after he took a two-month break from set to “de-Windass”.
Mikey, who plays Gary Windass, has been given some time off following a dramatic year of intense storylines, including his character’s kidnapping of evil Pat Phelan.
Speaking to What’s On TV magazine, Mikey revealed: “I’ve got about two months off now.
“I’m going to go away and de-Windass for a bit, and then come back and see what’s next.”
Mikey has played Gary in Corrie for more than a decade.
His character was recently left stunned when Nicole Rubinstein announced she was leaving Weatherfield and taking their newborn son Zack with her.
