Coronation Street star Joe Duttine has revealed he gets insulted by fans over the Geoff and Yasmeen storyline.

Eventually Tim saw Geoff’s true colours when he discovered a video of Geoff abusing his wife Yasmeen by screaming in her face and insulting her.
However actor Joe Duttine has revealed that fans have insulted him over Tim taking so long to his his dad’s nasty side.
As reported in the Metro, Joe said: “I’ve literally had people calling me thick and all sorts on the street.
“I was filling my car up the other day and someone shouted ‘Oi Tim you thick [bleep]. This storyline has reached so many people and everyone wanted Tim to realise what is going on.
“The reaction on social media once he found out was brilliant and it was great to get feedback that people enjoyed the episodes. It’s good to know that people think you are doing a good job, it gave me a real lift and it’s very much appreciated.”
