But Charlie, who played midwife Marcus Dent in the ITV show, was more coy when discussing the ‘nastiest’ celebrity he has ever met, only saying that he had worked with the culprit for a ‘long time’.

He penned: ‘Taking my cue from @BridgLondon, who’s the nicest celeb you’ve met?  And who’s the nastiest?

‘Nicest – Viggo Mortensen was the absolute best when I worked with him. 

‘Nastiest – someone I had to work with closely for a long time …..’

Vicky Entwistle, who plays Janice Battersby on the Manchester-based soap, responded to his tweet, writing: ‘I know! X’

While other fans began speculating who they thought the ‘nasty’ celebrity, with many guessing that it was one of Charlie’s former Coronation Street co-stars. 

Some followers even posted pictures of Antony Cotton, who starred as Charlie’s on-screen love interest Sean Tully in the long-running soap opera.

Despite the ongoing speculation, Charlie has remained tight-lipped and neither confirmed nor denied who he was referring to.

It has previously been reported that the on-screen lovers did not see eye-to-eye during their stint together on Coronation Street.

In 2013, it appeared that there was a feud between the co-stars after Charlie allegedly criticised the amount Antony posted pictures of his food on social media.

However, Charlie had denied that his comments were actually directed at Antony after the news broke of tensions between the two soap stars. 

A source told The Mirror of an apparent feud at the time, saying: ‘It is an open secret that Antony and Charlie do not see eye to eye. 

‘There is a real divide throughout the cast and crew, with some people Team Condou and some Team Cotton. 

‘They are both very different people and simply rub each other up the wrong way.‘

Charlie played Marcus Dent on the ITV show from 2007–08 and 2011–2014, until he left to spend more time with his family who resided in North London.

His character had several dramatic storylines, including on-screen romances with Sean Tully (Antony Cotton), Maria Connor (Samia Longchambon) and Todd Grimshaw (Bruno Langley).

Last year, Charlie told Lorraine Kelly about his decision to leave Coronation Street, saying: ‘My time on Corrie was fantastic but being in Manchester was really difficult, my family and my kids are down here and I wasn’t getting to see them, that’s why I left.’

Charlie raises his two children Georgia, ten, and Hal, seven, who were born with the help of his friend Catherine Kanter, with his husband Cameron Laux.

Georgia and Hal were born following IVF treatment and the siblings split their time between Charlie and Cameron and their mother, who lives nearby. 

Charlie told Lorraine: ‘There were no gay people having kids when I was growing up. It was nice I was out here talking about it. It’s changed now. 

‘Younger generations of gay men and women and the transgender community becoming parents and I think it’s fantastic.’

Charlie also spoke about how he took up work as a waiter after leaving Coronation Street to support his children and pay his mortgage. 

The star, who became a household name with his long-running portrayal of midwife Marcus Dent, had to take the job after acting work dried up.
