Andy, 39, has been offered a new deal to continue featuring on the serial drama for another twelve months.

He was delighted and took to his Instagram stories to share the news with his fans.

Whyment relaxed in his hot tub and raised a glass of Bacardi and Coke.

He said: “Good evening guys, in the lazy spa, 40 degrees, Bacardi diet coke, celebrating that I’ve been offered a new contract at Coronation Street.”

“The I’m A Celeb runner-up beamed as he concluded his message with: “It makes me really happy, so cheers.”

Fans will remember Andy saying on last year’s I’m A Celebrity how much he enjoyed a Bacardi and coke, so it’s no surprise he chose the beverage as his celebration drink.

Andy’s alter-ego Kirk has been leaving fans in stitches since 2000 and they will be delighted with the news that he will continue to put a smile on their faces.

He is man with a good heart but the ditsy character has been pushed around quite a bit during his time in Weatherfield, especially by women.

Andy will continue to make fans laugh playing Kirk for another year at least

In 2007, ex-girlfriend Fiz answered his proposal by dumping him, while while another old flame Julie Carp never took him seriously.

He hasn’t always had it easy work-wise either, as after working at the now defunct Elliott & Son butchers, he was on the dole for two years.

Things got better for the happy-go-lucky Kirk when he was taken on at Underworld as a driver and packer, and has been happily married to Beth Tinker for five years.

The star was on set yesterday and gave fans a glimpse of character Kirk Sutherland’s stomping ground.

The actor, took to his Instagram Stories for a less than glam shot showing him shooting scenes in the pouring rain.

The ITV soap’s Manchester set, in Salford Quays, was sodden with the cobbles soaking wet.

Andy, who was filming wearing a blue T-Shirt, held the camera to his face and captioned the shot: “Rainy day in Weatherfield,” complete with three rainy Emoji icons.
