The 53-year-old actor was taken to hospital by police and later questioned when officers were called to the Manchester home he shares with his partner Louise Gibbons after reports of an assault.

And Greater Manchester Police have said that they will not take any further action.

They told the Daily Mirror: "Officers attended and arrested a 53-year-old man, he was taken to hospital then taken into police custody for questioning. The man has since been released with no further action."

Michael and Louise, 42, got engaged in December, after she helped him through his battle with alcohol addiction.

Michael - who met Louise in 2014 through a mutual friend - confessed in 2013 he was an alcoholic after he was on trial for child sex abuse offenses. He was found not guilty.

In 2014, the actor announced he had stopped drinking and sought treatment for his addiction.

He signed a new 'Coronation Street' contract last year and vowed not to go back to his old ways.

However, Michael was recently declared bankrupt and it was claimed that he went broke when his finances spiralled out of control after his divorce.

The 'Coronation Street' actor - who has played Kevin Webster on the soap since 1983 - was declared bankrupt due to legal fees and failing to keep on top of his tax affairs and it has been alleged that he struggled to keep his spending under control following his 2011 split from Janette Beverley.

A source said: "She controlled the purse strings so kept him in line.

"Now he's on his own it has all spiralled out of control."
