    It has been revealed that Coronation Street actor Graeme Hawley was attacked by a disgruntled fan, upset at his character's storyline.


    The 36-year-old plays teacher John Stape, who had an affair with schoolgirl Rosie Webster back in 2007. He kidnapped her and held her hostage a year later.
