Jack P Shepherd jokes he's appearing in Emmerdale

Share article:

Jack P. Shepherd told a fan he was appearing on "Emmerdale" last night (01.05.19) after he was mistaken for a star of the ITV soap.

The "Coronation Street" actor - who has portrayed cobbles favourite David Platt since 2000 - made a nod to the rival soap's farming heritage by joking he was going to "feed a pig some bacon" on a "great episode" of the programme.

Jack took to Instagram Stories to post a screenshot of the conversation, which began when the supporter asked: "Are you in Emmerdale tonight ? Haven't seen u in it forever (sic)"

The "Corrie" star replied: "Yes I'm on emmerdale tonight, it's a great episode, I feed a pig some bacon (sic)"

Should Jack one day appear in "Emmerdale" - which was previously called "Emmerdale Farm" - he wouldn't be the first star to swap the Manchester cobbles for the Yorkshire Dales.
