Corrie viewers watched in horror as Tim seemed to amputate his own thumb while doing the dishes.

Terrified, Sally yelled to Tim to put pressure on the wound, crying, “See if you have ice, maybe they can sew it up.” “
Geoff called an ambulance and revealed that his son had “amputated his own thumb” while Yasmeen was looking for him in the sink.
Tim said, “I can’t live without my thumb. I can’t hold anything. “
Just when the desperate situation got out of hand, Tim raised his thumb from under the towel and confessed, “Oh, there it is. “
Giggling Tim and Geoff revealed that they played an April prank on their wives.
