Corrie’s Charlie Lawson says he ‘almost chinned’ male airport security worker

Corrie star Charlie Lawson slams airport security

Former Coronation Street actor has slammed a male airport security worker for “touching his genitals” while patting him down. The 64-year-old said he almost got into a physical altercation with the worker for being overzealous while carrying out routine inspections.

Charlie took to Instagram to share the incident with his 25,000 followers in a short clip on his feed. He explained: “This happens to me quite a few times because people recognise ya, but I very nearly chinned somebody today.

“I said to that boy, ‘If you touch me there again son, you’ll know all about it’. He accused me of being difficult, I said, ‘No I don’t, but I don’t like you touching my genitals.” The ITV star said that he was subjected to X-ray machines but insisted that the patting down was “intrusive and bang out of order, to be quite frank”.

Clearly frustrated with the situation, the television star went on to refer to the security staff as a “little pr**k,” before signing off. He captioned the post: “I’ve lived with intense security and body searches all my life, but it’s getting a wee bit much these days. Just on occasions.”

Charlie’s followers rushed to the comments section to share their views on the situation at hand. One Instagram user wrote: “Well done for keeping calm. I don’t think I would have,” while another person said: “Well done for keeping the composure.”

A third fan added: “Love your posts. Somebody who’s not afraid to speak their mind.”

While a fourth expressed: “Love the way you tell it how it is spot on.”

The actor got married to partner Debbie Stanley in October and close friend Eamonn Holmes officiated the ceremony.

Charlie and Debbie, 59, have been in a relationship with one another for the past two decades before tying the knot.

The Jim McDonald star admitted he couldn’t be more thrilled that his pal Eamonn Holmes was in attendance.

“We actually legally got married at Macclesfield Registration Office two weeks before the proper wedding, with just three witnesses, so Eamonn could do the service,” he told OK!
