Coronation Street star Sam Aston’s wife claims she was ‘groped while shopping’


Coronation Street star Sam Aston's wife Briony has revealed on social media that she was groped in a shop.

The yoga teacher spoke out after the incident in a TK Maxx store, near her home in Rawtenstall, Lancashire.

Sharing the details of what happened on Instagram , Briony detailed how a stranger 'pushed himself against her' and 'groped' her before she followed him outside and got him to confess and apologise on video, as well as photographing the stranger's car number plate, in case she needed it as evidence in the future.

Briony married Corrie star Sam, who plays Chesney in the Weatherfield, told her Instagram followers about the traumatic ordeal.

She wrote: “Yesterday in TKMaxx Rawtenstall a man completely disrespected my personal space.

"He walked in front of me so close I could have smelt him. I moved away and pretended to be looking at the plants on the shelf when he brushed past me from behind and something of his touched my buttock.

“It could have been the poke of a finger or light press of a hand. I jolted away and raced to another aisle. He then followed me to various aisles in the store and kept smiling at me.

"I told him, “You’re making me feel very uncomfortable,” to which he replied, “I’m sorry,” in the most patronising way, in a way – I believe -an innocent man wouldn’t have said.

“Last night I went through the stages of fear, upset, anger and disbelief. Now I’m feeling curious.

"Curious as to why someone thinks that following and touching someone else without consent is OK.

"Curious if he thinks he’s got away with it. Curious if he realises how much he underestimated me.

“Luckily I managed to record his creepy 'apology' on my phone and his car registration.

"I wonder if his partner or kids or friends or colleagues know what kind of person he is.

"I wonder if he knows what kind of person I am. I wonder if by some slim chance he’s reading this and if so, I hope his roots can feel my thunder.”

There was shock among her followers, with one commenting: "Omg that's awful… nobody should have to put up with that."
