    Amelia left the show a year later, but Phil continued on the show until 1988, when his character was killed off.

    His character, Des, died from a heart attack in hospital, where he was recovering from a cruel assault.

    After nine years on the cobbles, he then took on the role of David Buckley in ITV’s Where The Heart Is.

    He also appeared in a ‘Coronation Street Special’ of Celebrity Come Dine with Me in 2010.

    The Channel 4 reality TV episode also featured Julie Goodyear, 79 (who played Bet Lynch on the soap), Ken Morley, 78, (Reg Holdsworth) and Tupele Dorgu, 43 (Kelly Crabtree).

    In 2012, Middlemiss declared himself bankrupt which at the time he blamed on financial difficulty spiralling from a film which he was directing in Africa grounding to a halt after three years in the country.
