Coronation Street star ‘camping out on set to avoid commute’

Coronation Street star Joe Duttine has reportedly been roughing it by sleeping in his camper van on the soap set during filming.

The 44-year-old actor – who plays window cleaner Tim Metcalfe in the ITV show – lives in Sheffield, and commutes to work at the Corrie studios in Manchester.

According to the Sun, Joe revealed to his co-stars he has been staying the night on the Weatherfield set in his VW camper van, rather than staying in a hotel.

A source told the newspaper: “In the past, Joe has used a camper van to stay in when on acting jobs away from his own home. He bought it a few years back for family holidays, which he really enjoys.

“When Joe knows he’ll be finishing filming late or starting early, he sometimes brings along the motorhome.”
