Heart attack for Coronation Street favourite fella

There are news reports today that one of the Coronation Street men is going to suffer a heart attack. 

If you don't want to know who it's going to be, look away now.

Looked away?

Still here?

Well, here we go with the news.

The Star reveals today that Tim Metcalfe, played by Joe Duttine, will be rushed to hospital where he receives the news he’s suffered a heart attack.

Sally then puts him on a strict diet and exercise regime. And although there will be some hilarious scenes as Sally makes Tim’s new health and fitness regime her new project, Corrie bosses are working closely with the British Heart Foundation to make sure they get storyline right.

Speaking about the storyline a Coronation Street spokesperson told the Daily Star Sunday: “Our research team and writers have been working with the British Heart Foundation looking at Tim's lifestyle choices and how the benefits of healthy eating and regular exercise impact on his health."

Praising the soap for raising awareness of the health issue, Philippa Hobson, Senior Cardiac Nurse at the British Heart Foundation, said: “Every three minutes in the UK, someone is rushed to hospital having had a heart attack. It’s great to see Coronation street raising awareness of this devastating condition, which affects so many people across the country.

“Medical research has helped us make huge strides in saving the lives of people suffering heart attacks, keeping hearts beating and blood flowing. “But the disease is far from beaten, and it’s still essential for us all to be able to recognise the signs and symptoms of a heart attack in ourselves and those around us.”
