Coronation Street fans horrified as Billy actor Daniel Brocklebank shares dangerous anti-vaxx rants on Twitter
CORONATION Street fans have been left horrified after seeing actor Daniel Brocklebank share dangerous anti-vaxx rants on Twitter.
The 42-year-old – who plays vicar Billy Mayhew in the ITV soap – has retweeted misinformation, liked tweets from anti-vaxx and anti-lockdown campaigners and called for SAGE scientists to be arrested.
“I was so shocked,” a fan of the ITV soap told The Sun. “He’s always come across as a reasonable guy on social media but I’ve had to unfollow him after this.”
Another fan complained to Corrie bosses on Twitter, saying: “Isn’t it even a little bit concerning to you that Daniel Brocklebank aka vicar Billy is retweeting alt right accounts and encouraging people to ignore the mainstream media?”
Daniel, who joined Coronation Street in 2014 to play gay vicar Billy, previously took to social media to complain about the effect of the pandemic on the ITV soap, saying he found lockdown “horrific”.
ITV has been approached for comment.

Omicron is milder – especially in the vaccinated – and Brits are now learning to live with Covid.
But case numbers are still high, with thousands catching the bug every day.
For some people it won't be a mild illness – especially if they aren't fully protected from vaccines.
So even if it is mild for you, you risk passing it on to someone who might suffer more which is why it's important to get fully protected.
Last year Daniel admitted he was finding the ongoing coronavirus pandemic "tough" as the UK entered its third national lockdown.
"January can be bleak at the best of times," he wrote.
"But this year especially I know so many of us are finding it rough."
He later went on to tell his 110,000 followers on Twitter: "I’ve had enough."
