Coronation Street’s Colson Smith’s neighbours call him an ‘inconsiderate a**e’

Colson Smith has revealed he was the subject of online abuse from other residents where he lives, leaving him ‘petrified’ to leave his flat.

The Coronation Street actor, 22, who lives with his co-star Ben Price, 48, says his neighbours called him an ‘inconsiderate a**e’ after he messed up the recycling by accident. 

 Colson, who plays Craig Tinker on the soap, explained how he wound up his neighbours: ‘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’, he said on the Sofa Cinema Club podcast. 

He continued: ‘I feel like knocking on everyone’s door and apologising. By the bins we saw two empty boxes that weren’t in the recycling bin and I said, “Ben, they’re my 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.

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

‘I’d filled up the cardboard box with rubbish and used the box itself as a bin and then chucked it in the bin. I thought it was [alright].’

Colson revealed that he had come across one of his neighbours calling him out on Facebook after his rubbish faux-pas. 

He added: ‘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**e that’s ruined it for everyone else”. That’s me.

‘My mum said I should do what I did this week – basically use two black bin bags. I had to put all the polystyrene balls in one bag, all the side pieces and ice packs in one pack and fold the boxes down.

‘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.’

There’s nothing like using the wrong bin to start beef with your neighbours after all.
