Tim Metcalfe has had the weight of the world on his shoulders recently, having hidden his heart condition for over a month.
Tim, played by Joe Duttine, didn’t want to worry his wife Sally after finding out he needed triple bypass surgery.
But after keeping her health issues a secret, she finally found out.

Sally grew suspicious of Tim’s secretive behavior and even asked him if he was having an affair.
Monday’s first episode saw Tim lying in hospital awaiting surgery, visited by his friend Kevin Webster.
Later, Tim’s wife came to visit to clear the air.
But before they could properly discuss things, Tim’s mother, Elaine, arrived, announcing that Faye had called her to tell her what was going on.
Tim was then taken to the operating theater, but many viewers spotted a problem.
Taking to Twitter, Patty Bee said: “How the hell were they allowed not one but 3 visitors without a mask in a hospital ward?
“You must have had a covid test and self-isolate before being admitted for surgery. Definitely no visitors allowed even with masks if you were having surgery #Corrie”
Craig S said, “Wait a minute, where’s your mask Sally?”
GerverLydia said: “Wait, where are the masks? And why is Tim allowing THREE visitors? #Corrie”
