Coronation Street extra injured on set


One of the extras working on Coronation Street was rushed to hospital during filming this week after ending up with a bloody nose.

It happened when they were filming a scene featuring Todd Grimshaw, who gets attacked by a group of thugs in an upcoming episode.(*)

But the extra required medical assistance after falling face first onto the pavement, leaving blood streaming from his nose.  He was taken away in an ambulance and a stand-in was called in to replace him in the late night scenes in the city centre.

A Coronation Street spokeswoman said: “The actor in question sustained a minor injury when he fell during filming. He was taken to hospital as a precaution and is now fine and well.”

The Mirror have pictures here.

(*) I'm not condoning violence, but as it is Todd who gets beaten up, so, er... YAY!

Is it wrong for me too have felt a bit of glee upon hearing that Todd gets a proper thumping?

It probably isn't the case, but it occurred to me that Tony might have set up the attack.
