Coronation Street star Ben Price has revealed that he was attacked by a goose in a terrifying attack.
The actor – who portrays Nick Tilsley on the ITV soap – explained that the goose in question started to make vicious hissing noises at him while he was out for a run, before pinning him against the wall!
‘There I am running through Trafford and there’s a goose with its chicks on the towpath,’ said Ben on the Sofa Cinema Club podcast.
‘So I turn and I’m right opposite it running and it goes: [hiss noise]’ The full hiss. And it’s big. One of those big f***ers.
‘So it took off at me, pinned me against the wall, full flap. And I’m like: “Arghh!”
‘I was thinking: “I’m not going anywhere near your babies, your chicks, I’m just running through.”
‘I tell you what, I ran. And I was a bit panicked. But of course, there’s like another 10.
‘So I can’t go back, I’m going forward and every time I go past one I’m like talking to them, saying: “No dramas, nothing here. I’m just going for a run. Please.”
‘You don’t want to upset them.
‘You don’t want to stress them out.’
Ben, 48, was at the centre of tense scenes in Corrie this week, as Nick’s son Sam Blakeman (Jude Riordan) was kidnapped by drug baron Harvey Gaskell’s (Will Mellor) thugs.
The trap – which was set in motion by scheming Sharon Bentley (Tracie Bennett) – was designed to bring Nick back to the cobbles, after he, Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) and Simon Barlow (Alex Bain) went into hiding.
