Corrie Mason star supported by famous father as he admits feeling guilty

Coronation Street newcomer Luca Toolan has admitted he felt guilty watching scenes where his character pulled a knife on someone.

The actor – whose dad is well-known DJ Mike Toolan – joined the soap as bully Mason Radcliffe in October and has already made a name for himself on the cobbles with his bullying behaviour. Recent scenes saw the situation escalate, with Mason threatening Liam Connor (Charlie Wrenshall).

Mason and his friends targeted Liam, taunting him and pushing him over as they chucked rubbish on him. When he tried to fight back, Mason stunned everyone by whipping out a knife. "Do that again!" he threatened, while holding the weapon in front of him.
