Coronation Street's Georgia Taylor blasts 'inappropriate' selfie request

There's a time and a place!

Coronation Street actress Georgia Taylor has said it's "inappropriate" to ask her for a photo when she is awaiting an appointment with her doctor.

The 38-year-old took to Twitter to ask her followers if she was being unreasonable after the person who asked for a selfie then accused Georgia of being "rude" for refusing.

Georgia, who plays Toyah Battersby in Corrie, wrote: "Since when was it deemed acceptable to ask for selfies in the doctors reception?

"You have no idea what I'm here for and it’s completely inappropriate, but apparently I'M the 'rude' one for saying no..."

Some people should stop and think how 'rude' they are.

The soap star's friends and fans were quick to say they agreed with her viewpoint.

Hundreds commented on her tweet including some fellow celebs.

Her co-star Kym Marsh simply wrote, "Oh good god!! X," while comedian Shappi Khorsandi trumped her by saying: "I once got asked at a funeral."

She wrote: "You are quite possibly the kindest soul I know. Maybe some people should stop and think how 'rude' they are? I'll send Leanne round and that will show them rude."

Georgia replied: "Aw thanks sis. Love you. And love a bit of Battersby spirit."

The soap stars fans also rallied round to tweet their support and say she hadn't been at all rude.

One wrote: "Some people have no idea. You did right, most people (decent people) wouldn't have asked in the first place."
