Coronation Street star, Claire King, has been sacked after making controversial comments
Coronation Street star, Claire King, has reportedly been sacked after making controversial comments.
The star is a spokesperson for Smart Energy and has been “relieved” of her duties after saying that she would consider assisted suicide if she was a ‘burden’ to friends as she aged.
According to Ok!Magazine, the star who plays Erica Holyroyd in Coronation street has been fired from her role. However, she has not confirmed the rumours.
King who has recently been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, said in the interview that carers have been let down by the Government and are in need of more support, understanding and money. She went on to say if she become a burden she would consider Euthanasia.
“I do worry about when I’m older and becoming a burden on people around me,” she said to The Mirror.
Adding, “I can understand why people choose assisted dying – and it’s getting to the point where I would consider it myself. I’m not going to be hurting any offspring as I haven’t got any.
“Most of my family will be gone. It’s not a selfish thing. It’s a decision at a certain age, when you’re becoming a burden to others.”
