Former Coronation Street actor Sean Ward has shared how his anti-vax views have led to him becoming homeless after being unable to secure enough work.
Sean, 33, shared how he has ended up giving up his four bedroom house and putting his things in storage after he couldn’t get enough work and once he couldn’t pay the storage bill either, his things ended up being sold.
The star says he is now sleeping on a mattress on the floor in the spare room of a friend.
Actor Seans posted some photos of himself attending an anti-vax protest earlier this year, and has since shared on Instagram how he has lost almost everything due to his beliefs.
In a text post, he explained to fans: “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 the rent.
“So I gave up my 4 bed house and move 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 about 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 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. I haven’t paid any rent to this man and it makes me extremely tearful when I think how amazing that really is.”
He also revealed he couldn’t afford to run his Honda Civic motor – dubbed his “beautiful Jenny” – and it was seized by the DVLA for having no tax.
Sean added: “Was it all worth it? Yes! If I’ve saved one life then yes.”
The actor played as Callum Logan in Coronation Street from October 2014 to September 2015 and won the British Soap Award for Best Newcomer and for Best Villain for his portrayal.
During the pandemic, the star had been vocal about his views online andwas arrested in September 2021 while attending an anti-vaccination protest in London.
The TV personality was photographed outside the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), where a group of people gathered to protest against vaccinations for children.
Earlier that day, the actor took to his Instagram stories to post several clips of the protestors, over which he wrote: "Kids dont need an experimental jab PROVE US WRONG".
In another video, he shared: "So we are at the MHRA building, we've got two people inside the building…"
