Schmeichel Update

(News item edited to remove spoilers.)

Corrie fans can today breathe a deep sigh of relief after Schmeichel won his battle for life.

The loveable 16-month-old Great Dane was feared to be on his way out after contracting Wobbler's Syndrome.

But an operation to save the mutt's life has proved successful.

The news was met with tears of joy from real-life owner Ann Lutt and the dog's Coronation Street co-star Sam Aston, who plays Schmeichel's screen master Chesney Brown.

Schmeichel's five-year-old cousin Magnum has been covering for the poor canine but it now looks as though the show favourite, named after former Manchester United keeper Peter Schmeichel, could return in the near future.

"We were all really worried about him and miss him loads, " the 12-year-old Sam said.

"We want him back as soon as possible. We've been told his treatment has gone really well which is great news."

A Street insider added to the Daily Star: "We are hoping Schmeichel will be able to make a comeback in September."
