CORONATION Street fans were left squirming as Tim Metcalfe made a very awkward sex blunder.
The couple – who are played by actors Sally Dynevor and Joe Duttine in the ITV soap – have been desperate to reignite the passion in the bedroom after Tim’s heart op.
On Wednesday’s episode, the couple were excited to seek advice from a sex therapist.
But Tim suffered a huge blunder when he accidentally opened up about his sex life to a charity worker from a donkey sanctuary.
The taxi driver bumped into the woman on the street and assumed she was the sex therapist.
He welcomed her into the house while he waited for his wife Sally.

Convinced she was medical expert Trina, Tim began discussing his bedroom antics with the stranger.
Charity rep Barbara asked Tim how he felt about donkey’s, but he got the wrong end of the stick and thought it was a sex act.
He explained: “Donkeys? Well, this has got very weird very fast.
“Listen Barbara, I don’t mind talking but maybe we should wait until my wife gets back? She’s a big part in this after all.”
The charity worker joked that Sally wore the trousers and was the “boss” in the household.
But Tim assured her that they were both equal when it came to the bedroom activities.
He replied: “Yes but not in the bedroom, not all the time. I mean we take it in turns, not in a Fifty Shades kind of way, neither of us are into that.
“We’ve tried it, we’ve tried a bit of everything to be honest with you but we’d be up for experimentation if you think that’s a good thing? Well, nothing’s off limits fantasy-wise.”
Sally then walked through the door as she declared: “The sex therapist is here!”
It then dawned on Barbara that she had been confused for someone else.
Sally added: “Trina the sex therapist is just parking up.”
Tim was left red-faced as he tried to make light of the situation and offered their guest a chocolate finger.
Viewers were left watching through their fingers at the awkward scene.
One wrote: “I cannot cope. Tim + donkeys + charity fundraiser [crying emojis, laughing emoji] #Corrie.”
Another posted: “Can always trust Tim and Sally to make things awkward. #CoronationStreet”
“#Corrie Tim asking the donkey charity worker is she wants a chocolate biscuit…classic.”
