The mother of the teenager came forward alleging the 34-year-old “attempted to pursue” her daughter at the gym and online in 2015.
The girl told The Sun: “He asked my age. It creeped me out. I walked away but he kept following.”
She told the newspaper that Bruno wrote to her on Twitter, allegedly saying: “You’re absolutely beautiful. Are you single?”

When the allegations emerged, Bruno previously released a statement saying: “Over the years as an actor I have had hundreds of people that approach me and want to speak to me, and I also get many messages through social media.
“I have no recollection of an exchange that The Sun state happened over two years ago.

“I would not have conversed with a girl in the manner The Sun alleges, if I knew she was under the age of 16. I have never been contacted by any authority about an allegation of this nature.”
It comes after Bruno Langley was sentenced for sexually assaulting two women at a night club in Manchester on October 1. He was sentenced after appearing at Manchester Magistrates Court on the morning of November 28 to make his plea.
The actor, who is no longer part of the ITV soap, was given a 12-month community order after pleading guilty to the assault and was handed 40 days of rehabilitation activity as part of the order.

Langley will be subjected to a 12-week monitored curfew, and must wear an electronic tag on top of his 12-month community order.
The soap actor must sign the sex offenders’ register for five years and pay £250 in compensation to each victim. He wept in the dock as he heard the sentence.
