Los Angeles, Feb 21 (THAINDIAN NEWS) For the first time after so many years, Sherrie Hewson has spoken about an incident that she suffered on the show, Coronation Street.

In her new autobiography Sherrie writes about an unnamed male cast member who she believed had deep seated hatred for her. She recalled that the hatred at a point turned nasty when the man attacked her at a canteen.

In the book Sherrie narrates that the man walked up to her and shouted at her that she (Sherrie) has been spreading false rumors about him. When she replied that she has not, the man got physical and held her by the throat against the wall. She revealed that she was not able to speak or fight back because the man was much stronger.

Fortunately the man got his hands off her and turned all pleasant when someone walked into the canteen.

The 60-year-old has been off the soap for 14 years now. She claims that she was too scared then to talk about the event.

Sherrie believes that the man’s hatred for her might have been due to the fact that she declined the man’s romantic advances towards her.
