Georgia Taylor felt "vulnerable" after an exchange with a fan who branded her "rude" for declining a selfie while she was at the doctor's.
The 'Coronation Street' star blasted a supporter yesterday (03.04.18) after they approached her for a picture while she was sitting in a surgery, and she has now admitted she felt "uncomfortable" about the request, and claimed the supporter hinted she might write about their conversation on Facebook.
She tweeted: "It was less about being asked for a selfie, and more about the reaction when I politely declined. I was clearly uncomfortable but was called rude and she said something about "posting this on Facebook". I never usually say no to anyone but I felt vulnerable (sic)"
Georgia - who plays Toyah Battersby in the ITV soap - has reassured fans she is "perfectly well" after revealing she was at the doctor's yesterday, and told supporters she was only there for a "routine thing".
She wrote: "Well thank you all so much for your replies to #selfiegate You've cheered me up no end And for those asking, I'm perfectly well thank you. Was just a routine thing ( but aggrieved Bristolian didn't know that) Big love xxx (sic)"
Georgia was inundated with messages of support from several of her 'Corrie' actors and a number of other stars, including comedienne Shappi Khorsandi, who revealed someone once asked her for a selfie at a funeral.
The 38-year-old actress replied: "Hey don't sweat it babes. They've probably got a Snapchat filter that'll airbrush your tears away The woman in question did say "well we could've gone outside for it!" xx (sic)"
Georgia hit out at the mystery supporter yesterday, blasting the "completely inappropriate" request.
She wrote on Twitter: "Since when was it deemed acceptable to ask for selfies in the doctors reception? You have no idea what I'm here for and it's completely inappropriate, but apparently I'M the 'rude' one for saying no... (sic)"
