Jack P. Shepherd has praised Paula Lane for her "brilliant" "Kinky Boots" show after the pair enjoyed a Platt family reunion.

The 30-year-old star - who plays David Platt on the ITV soap - reunited with his former on-screen wife (Kylie Platt) this week when he and his fellow cobbles family, Tina O'Brien (Sarah Platt), Lucy Fallon (Bethany Platt) and Ben Price (Nick Tilsley) went to see a performance of Paula's latest production at the Manchester Opera House.

Jack shared a snap of the pair together, and he captioned the image: "Platts on mass! Went to see Paula, in her kinky boots tour at the opera house in Manchester, wow, what a brilliant show, you made us all proud! (sic)"

Paula - whose character Kylie was killed off in 2016 - also appeared to be delighted at the reunion, and took to Instagram to share the same picture.

She wrote: "Love never dies"

Paula recently admitted she looks back fondly on her time in Weatherfield, and made some "friends for life" on the show.

She said: "I have really warm memories of my time on "Corrie". I met some friends for life on that show and learnt a lot about myself and my craft. I watched myself grow as an actress. I became a mother on that show too, of course, and I love the rest of the characters. I love them a lot."

The star - who plays Lauren in the musical production - admitted appearing in "Kinky Boots" is quite different to being on the cobbles, and she loves performing in front of a live audience.

She said: "Being in "Kinky Boots" is very different to being on "The Street", of course. There's different pressures in different ways. With "Corrie", it was a quick fire day then go home and learn lines. With this, you have to make sure it's polished to perfection.

"There's advantages and disadvantages of both. I guess the biggest advantage of theatre is the live audience. By the end of each show, the audience are on their feet and that's a thrill."
