    The Daily Star ran a front page splash under the headline "Corrie Star's Shock Secret Love Children". The story detailed the two children he had fathered with a female friend, who the pair raise alongside his partner Cameron Laux. In fact, Condou is one of the UK's most prominent advocates for gay parenting and writes regular columns for The Guardian about their arrangement.

    He saw the funny side.
