Coronation Street's Jack P Shepherd posts special behind-the-scenes tribute to two soap legends

Coronation Street star Jack P Shepherd left fans emotional as he posted a sweet snap of a special behind-the-scenes tribute to two of the soap's legends. The actor, who is known for playing David Platt, shared a snap online alongside his co-star Julia Goulding.

The pair took a video in an elevator mirror and, as the door closed, Jack and Vera Duckworth's faces appeared plastered on the door, reports Manchester Evening News. The iconic soap couple, played by the late Bill Tarmey and Liz Dawn, were both puckering up so when the doors closed, the pair were sharing a kiss.

As the full picture appeared, Julia, who stars as David's wife Shona on the cobbles, could be heard sweetly saying: "Aww." Posting the clip, Jack captioned it: "Icons." alongside a duck emoji.

In response to the post, Tina O'Brien, who plays Sarah Barlow posted flame and love heart eyes emojis. Abi Webster actress Sally Carman-Duttine replied: "Love this." With Andy Whyment, who is known for playing Kirk Sutherland, writing: "Legends," with a red heart.

And fans were also quick to gush over the sweet addition to what appeared to be part of the soap's Salford-based building. @autotails_adventures said: "These two were Corrie, the best couple next to Stan and Hilda loved them."

@eugenemcgillan said: "Wow that’s class." @whatthaonabout commented: "Beautiful! There will never be a better couple in a soap."

@vegasbroad shared: "This is fabulous. I miss them both." @sandrabeatty replied: "Seriously the best thing I’ve seen in a long time!!"
