Coronation Street star 'fuming' as Jack P Shepherd lets slip show secret

Coronation Street's Jack P Shepherd has given fans a behind the scenes insight on the set of Coronation Street.

The actor is renowned for his role as David Platt on the long-running soap. Jack joined the cast in 2000 and has portrayed the character through some of the show's most dramatic storylines.

David tormented his family throughout his first decade on the show and served time in a Young Offenders institute after he pushed his mum, Gail Platt, down the stairs. The actor has reminisced on his character's troubled teenage period today as he posed on the staircase of Gail's home at 8 Coronation Street.

Jack shared the snap with his 389,000 Instagram followers alongside the caption: "Misspent youth was had on this staircase."

David has since married Shona Turner on the show - and the character has matured over the years as his storylines now focus on trying to keep Max Turner on the right path. His onscreen son is played by Paddy Bever and the actor took to the comments to blast his co-star for ruining a behind the scenes secret.

Jack's snap shows the Corrie set finishes at the top of the staircase and Paddy aimed fire at his onscreen dad for spoiling the illusion. He joked: "Fuming. Just found out there’s no upstairs."

Jamie Kenna, who played Phill Whittaker, added: "the house not real?!?!"

Other fans took to the comments to comment on the reveal.

Sally said: "Why did I think they were actual, real houses.... ruined it now!"

Lee posted: "So there’s no upstairs??"

Sharlene added: "This is up there with the disappointment I felt when I found out the washing machines in the laundrette in EastEnders aren’t real, and someone actually stands behind the wall manually turning them round."

May commented: "Can't believe people think these are real houses!"

Katie posted: "We always say 'why is Max going upstairs? There’s nothing up there!' We did the Corrie tour a few years ago "

Rosey said: "Some people think there’s actually a bedroom up there. Hilarious"
