TIM Metcalfe has been keeping another health secret from his wife Sally.
But he has no other choice than to come clean next week in Coronation Street when he puts his health in danger.
After going through a harrowing triple bypass surgery, Tim's (played by Joe Duttine) intimate life with his other half Sally (Sally Dynevor) was catapulted into the spotlight as the pair were torn by Elaine's presence at No.4.
Yet when his mother finally left him and his spouse some privacy, Tim was unable to perform – a direct result from his heart operation.
The cabbie has since kept his impotence a secret from Sally.
However, the truth catches up with him in scenes due on our screens next week.

In later scenes, Tim spots Sally and Ronnie by No.1 and a huge misunderstanding with potentially terrible consequences ensues.
As mentioned above, this wouldn't be the first time Tim keeps a secret from Sally about his health.
Tim found out he was having heart problems earlier in 2022 but couldn't come clean to his wife until a few weeks had gone by.
He soon found support in the form of nurse Aggie Bailey… with Sally believing the pair were having an affair.
She eventually cornered Tim in Aggie's home and her husband collapsed on the floor after the pressure and stress became too hard for him to handle.
This time, Tim seems to have learned from his mistakes.
