Coronation Street’s Sally Carman has revealed the hilarious reason she’d happily ‘never work’ with her co-star and fiancé Joe Duttine again.
The actress, who plays the popular ITV soap’s Abi Franklin, says acting opposite Joe, who stars as Tim Metcalfe, is too difficult because he continuously makes her laugh.
Sally, 40, admitted: “I don’t work with him that much and I really don’t want to work with him. No! I never want to work with him ever again. I just can’t do it!”
In the interview with the Daily Star, Sally added: “It’s because he makes me laugh, it’s horrendous.”

She continued: “He’s the funniest man I’ve ever met, to the point where I get sweaty and everyone’s like, ‘ugh, can you just get on with it?’”
However, when they’re not filming scenes on the Corrie cobbles, the couple, who got engaged during last year’s lockdown, couldn’t be happier.
Opening up about their romance in an interview earlier this year, Sally explained meeting Joe at work had been the biggest blessing.
She said: “Coronation Street has completely changed my life, I feel really settled.”
Sally continued: “I’ve got myself a fiancé, I’ve moved house, and I’ve got a family and brilliant friends.”
Meanwhile, Sally recently teased some explosive Coronation Street stunt scenes which will leave diehard fans on the edge of their seats – and one cobbles resident dead.
Speaking backstage at the National Television Awards after Corrie won three awards, Sally said: “It’s going to be so big it will rival the tram crash.”
Remaining tight-lipped about the identity of who will be bowing out of the soap when the scenes air, she said: “All I’m saying is it’s going to be fantastic and amazing.”
Elsewhere, the soap’s boss Iain MacLeod revealed the epic storyline would centre on the street’s sinkhole, which appeared in the Platt’s back garden earlier this year.
He explained to the Daily Star: “We have a big stunt planned that will centre around the sinkhole in the Platt family’s back garden.”
“And that will result in a death. Deaths only really work if it’s somebody that you really care about and it’s going to be somebody that viewers know and love.”
“It is going to be big. There will be loads of spectacle. It’s going to be cinematic.”
