Bruce likes Corrie name Les and Les.

Byline: JACK ANDREWS

EX-CORRIE favourite Bruce Jones says he is sick of being called Les Battersby.

Starstruck fans are still calling him by his layabout character's name more than 12 years after he left the soap.

Bruce said: "Les's character will never go. I sometimes say, 'My name's not Les, it's Bruce' - especially when it is just someone shouting it across the room.

"It really does get on my nerves. I just ignore it. My name is not Les."

Bruce, 66, is now set to return to our screens after in a Netflix documentary on The Yorkshire Ripper.

Bruce discovered the body of the murderer's first victim Jean Jordan on an allotment in Chorlton, Manchester, in 1977.
