Coronation Street star, Jack P Shepherd, has caused a stir by taking of a photo (pretending?) to relieve himself on the sign for rival soap, Emmerdale.
Jack, who plays David Platt on the show, posted the photo to his Twitter account after a night out but deleted it within seconds.
An insider told The Sun that “Jack had a few drinks like the rest of the Corrie cast, but as the night went on he got a bit boisterous.” Yeah, no kidding!
The source revealed that the 27-year-old soap star has been in trouble before over inappropriate behaviour and that ITV bosses have warned their actors against this kind of publicity.
“Jack knew this could get him in trouble. There’s big rivalry between the soaps but the ITV bosses don’t want any headaches over rows.”
While Jack did delete the picture, he clearly isn’t feeling too shook up about the thought of possibly getting in trouble as he tweeted, “Now where’s that @bbceastenders set,” after the incident.
Jack P Shepherd, who plays David on Coronation Street, angered a lot of people last night after joking about the horrific arson attack on an animal shelter in Manchester, which saw 60 dogs killed.
His tweets read: "I have a billion hot dog jokes", followed by: "You guys need to lighten up. #GetItLightenUp".
They have since been deleted and Jack has been on damage control, tweeting:
"I sincerely apologise for any offence I have caused. This was not intended to be a malicious tweet and I didn't consider the offence it would cause.
"At the time I didn't realise the scale of the tragedy but that doesn't excuse my behaviour. I now realise how insensitive I have been. I have made a donation to the MCR dogs home and I'm very sorry for my behaviour."
A Coronation Street spokeswoman also released a statement, saying: "Jack quickly realised the insensitivity of his tweets and deleted them straight away. He apologises for any offence he has caused.
"Jack's ill judged and insensitive tweets were clearly unacceptable and we will be talking to him about his conduct."
While we all love a good joke, this was definitely a pretty bad one. Not cool, Jack!
Michelle Keegan posted a selfie on Saturday night which caused fans to be a bit concerned about her tiny frame. However, one person who wasn’t worried was her ex co-star Jack P Shepherd, who decided to poke a bit of fun at Ms. Keegan instead.
Jack, who plays David Platt in Corrie, posted his own selfie in the gents with the caption: “Monday. Chillin out in da gents. @michkeegan”
Jack’s photo may not be as pretty, but he does raise an important issue – why do we love taking photos in the bathroom so much?!
