Since Joe Duttine began portraying Tim Metcalfe on Coronation Street in 2013, viewers have enjoyed seeing his humorous interactions with wife Sally.
Tim is known for his sense of humor, but Joe, an actor, has come clean about something more serious on social media. He has expressed profound grief in the wake of Queen Elizabeth II’s passing.
The late queen paid a visit to Manchester’s Coronation Street set in July 2021. In July 2021, Her Majesty traveled down the most well-known road in the area to mark the soap’s 60th anniversary.
Actor Bill Roache later remarked that the Queen gave you the impression that you were the “only person in her life.”
He commented on This Morning that “what was so amazing about her was this readiness to grin, and you felt she wanted to laugh, and had a beautiful chuckle.”
A number of Corrie actors have shared pictures from Her Majesty’s visit to Weatherfield as a way to honor the late Queen. Joe Duttine, though, appears to have been left out.
He published a picture of the Queen and his on-screen spouse, Sally Dynevor. Between the two, he had sketched a red stick figure.
“This is where I should have been standing if it weren’t for bloody COVID,” he captioned the picture. Fans quickly expressed their disappointment in him.
Lynda Angus commented in the comments section: “That’s sad [heart emoji],” while Jill Russell added: “Awww bless you x.” Dean Holland expressed his regret for you.
Joanne wished Joe well and said: “Sending well wishes Joe, you could not help being ill x,” while Charlotte said: “Oh this is awful x.”
