Ex-Corrie star Charlie Condou is flogging his old clothes to fans online as Covid halts his acting work

EX-CORRIE star Charlie Coundou has started flogging his old clothes online after the coronavirus pandemic affected his job.

The 48-year-old actor – who played Marcus Dent on the ITV soap from 2007 to 2014 – has made a Depop account to try and get rid of his unwanted clobber.

Covid-19 has left a lot of people out of work over the past year and one of those affected has been Charlie – but he's found the perfect way to get a bit of extra cash in the bank.

Social shopping app Depop is a great way to get rid of unwanted items as you can also make a bit of money too.

Earlier this month the star shared a link to his new account and told his 156.6k followers: "Making use of my abundance of free time, I'm clearing out my wardrobe."

Charlie currently has 14 followers on his account, which boasts a range of snazzy jumpers up for sale.

His lowest priced item is an A.P.C sweatshirt selling for £23 and his most expensive piece is a brand new Ralph Lauren jumper worth £80.

Charlie has also put two of his vintage Dior sweaters up for sale too.

Hopefully the soap star will follow in the same footsteps as Towie's Lucy Mecklenburgh, Strictly's Katya Jones and Katie Price – who are all making a small fortune on the app.

Charlie's new business venture comes after he shared his fears that he may be suffering from "long covid".

The actor contracted the deadly bug last year and has still been suffering from some nasty symptoms.

He tweeted: "I’ve been suffering from something that is looking more and more like long Covid since October.

“But since Christmas Eve I’ve had incredible pain in my arm and have lost the use of my thumb/forefinger."

Last month Charlie also sparked a showbiz guessing game by claiming a cast member he worked closely with was the "nastiest celebrity" he’s ever met.
