Coronation Street star Colson Smith has had a run in with his neighbours this week. The 22-year-old actor has angered some local residents near his flat, after failing to separate polystyrene from his cardboard boxes when putting out the recycling.

The soap star, who receives regular food deliveries each week, made his comments during an episode of the Sofa Cinema Club podcast.

He admitted that he didn’t realise that he wasn’t recycling properly, when talking to his co-stars Ben Price and Jack P Shepherd.

Colson said: “My delivery boxes I get every week I can’t recycle, because they’ve got polystyrene and ice packs in.

“I just chuck it all into one big box, recycle the other, but chuck everything else into one big box and put that in the bin.”

The Craig Tinker actor went on to say that on spotting the error, someone had correctly separated the items for him and left the empty boxes.

“Somebody had fished all my rubbish out of the boxes and left the boxes. I genuinely, hand on heart, didn’t realise I was doing something wrong,” he said.

“I think someone was peed off that it should’ve been put in the recycling bin.”

Continuing with the story, Colson added: “But now the recycling bins have been locked down so you can only put it in through the little post box, and there’s a post on Facebook of somebody ranting about the ‘inconsiderate a**ehole that’s ruined it for everyone else’. That’s me.”

After upsetting his neighbours, the actor said he was now “petrified” to leave his home.

“I’m basically walking around the flat now, from the minute I get in the lift to the minute I get out, keeping my head down.

“I’m petrified.”

The ITV star said he wanted to apologise to his neighbours for the inconvenience.
