Bruce Jones (born 24 January 1953) is an English actor, best known for his role as cab driver Les Battersby-Brown in Coronation Street. He left the role in 2007. His real name is Ian Roy Jones, but he took the name of his father for professional purposes.

Jones was born to Bruce and Irene Jones in Collyhurst. He was brought up in a typical working class household before he went to live with his grandmother in Wales where he joined his school drama group at the age of eleven and dreamt of becoming an actor.

On the morning of 9 October 1977, Jones made a gruesome discovery that would have a profound effect on his life. Whilst working with a friend on an allotment in Moss Side, Manchester, Jones discovered the mutilated body of 20 year old prostitute Jean Jordan - a victim of The Yorkshire Ripper, Peter Sutcliffe.
