British soap star Michael Le Vell has returned home after spending three weeks in a rehabilitation facility to deal with his personal problems.

The Coronation Street actor checked himself in to The Priory clinic near Manchester, England last month (Mar14) to seek professional help, and he looked happy and healthy as he was photographed arriving back at his house in Cheshire, England on Monday (21Apr14).

Le Vell had reportedly received treatment for alcoholism after taking time out of his longrunning role as mechanic Kevin Webster on Coronation Street.

He had previously admitted to taking cocaine in the run up to his child sex abuse trial last year (13), when he was cleared of all charges.
