Ghana: Coronation Street’s Des Barnes actor Philip Middlemiss ‘is wanted by police in Ghana over £5m bribery scandal linked to the sale of three military planes’

Former Coronation Street star Philip Middlemiss is being sought by police in Ghana over an alleged £5million air bribery.

Prosecutors named the former actor among four people they would like to speak to in relation to the £50million sale of three Airbus C-295 military planes to the country.

Middlemiss famously played Coronation Street’s womanising Des Barnes for eight years in the 1990s.

He then claims to have befriended the brother of the country’s vice-president, before heading back to the UK.
