CORONATION Street star Sean Ward has asked fans to help fund his own documentary after revealing he’s broke following on from his anti-vax rants.
It comes after the actor, 33 – who played Callum Logan in the ITV soap between 2014 and 2015 – revealed that his controversial views left him with no job offers and no money.

Over the past two years the soap star has made it known that he doesn’t agree with how the Government have handled the pandemic.
Sean is also against getting jabbed, despite the fact that they reduce your risk of getting seriously ill or dying, reduce your risk of catching or spreading it, and gives you protection against other variants.
The actor has chosen to ignore the fact that the vaccine has so far protected 71 per cent of the UK population from severe cases of the virus.
NHS England recently revealed that the jabs have saved 127,000 lives in England alone this month.
And The Sun’s Jabs Army campaign is helping get the vital extra vaccines in Brits’ arms to ward off the need for any new restrictions.
The vaccines are safe and effective and give the best protection against the bug.
Yesterday Sean told how he had lost everything, but set up his own independent news channel with hopes of traveling the country to talk to people about their experiences.
He asked his followers to support him with his vision in any way possible.
Sean said in his Instagram rant: “If you can support me in anyway then please let me know. I want to keep supporting people.”
Since then many offered up the idea of a Go Fund Me page in the comments section.
Earlier today Sean told his 178k followers: “I am speechless. Thank you to every single one of you. I never expected such a beautiful response.
“I will think about a go fund me. I just hate the idea tbh cos it feels weird but I do want to make a documentary and like I said take the film crew to the people so I’ll think about it.
“It could be really special. I want to meet you all and hear about your personal thoughts as well. We all have a voice.”
On Wednesday Sean whinged that sharing his views have cost him his career and left him homeless.
He said on Instagram: “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.”
Sean also revealed that his teeth started to fall out because of the stress, struggled to keep weight on, and couldn’t afford to keep his car.
The Corrie star sparked controversy in August last year after joining anti-vaccine protesters massed at the Television Centre.
Just months before he shared a video rant on social media in which he told followers they shouldn’t get the Covid vaccine.
In March 2021 he attended controversial anti-lockdown protest in London.
