Rob Mallard health: Actor’s growing health fear ‘It could be quite debilitating’ 1

Rob Mallard, 27, joined the cast of Coronation Street in 2016, being the third actor to play the role of Daniel Osbourne. The youngster quickly proved his raw talent in the role, even bagging himself the “Best Newcomer” prize at The British Soap Awards for his convincing portrayal. Rob seemed to have the world at this feet, however, behind closed doors the actor was suffering from a health condition that was beginning to become more and more difficult to hide.

Rob said: “My solution has been to hide and manage. Because of the job that I’m in, it can have a detrimental effect on my ability to get cast.

“And then it was exposed on TV. I was embarrassed and then angry.

“But then I started getting messages saying, ‘Me too’.”
