Former Coronation Street star Sean Ward has explained how he's lost all his belongings and can't get work after voicing his views on the coronavirus.
The 33-year-old actor claims he had to give up his four bedroom house before putting all of his items into storage after spending his savings airing his anti-vaxx views.
In a lengthy post on Instagram, he wrote: "So 2 years ago after a long deliberation I decided I could no longer stay quiet.
"I raised my head from the trenches and joined the ranks that many would consider conspiracy theorists and tin foil hat wearing fools."
He went on to say: "I traveled from Manchester to London for over a year every month. Spending all my savings on supporting the movement and protests meeting some of the most incredible people.
"However, no one really knows how much this has effected me and I want to try and explain just a little of the things I've gone through."
He continued: "Firstly the work dried up. NO ONE would hire me. Whether in front of or behind the camera, all my usual ways of making money just stopped, eventually I couldn't afford my rent.
"So I gave up my 4 bed house and moved onto my friend's couch. I had to put all my belongings into storage.
"After a while I couldn't afford to pay the storage bill and after 4 weeks of missing the payments - equating to about £500 - Safe store UK sold all belongings. My sofa, my bed frame, my office equipment, desk, chair, wardrobes, mirrors, all my coats and clothes and my projector.
"Everything to fill a full family house. My whole life was in that storage unit. I lost it all. I was devastated but I couldn’t ask anyone for help because it was my choice to speak out.
"Luckily I got my mattress out in time and I’ve been sleeping on that in a friend’s spare room for over a year now. He has given me a safe space when I really needed it."
He explained: "I haven't paid any rent to this man. And it makes me extremely tearful when I think how amazing that actually is."
