Coronation Street actor Jack P. Shepherd who plays David Platt has received some fun birthday honors from his friends and co-stars.
The actor celebrates his 33rd birthday today (Thursday 14 January).
Though England is at a standstill, its co-stars, including Tina O-Brien, who plays David’s sister Sarah, have found ways to celebrate Jack’s birthday.
Jack’s Corrie co-stars Colson Smith, who plays Craig Tinker, and Ben Price, who plays David’s brother Nick, posted a birthday joke video on the Sofa Cinema Club’s Instagram page.
The Sofa Cinema Club is a podcast by Jack, Colson, and Ben.
In the video, Ben said, “We were asked by a friend, a friend, a friend of yours … Jack to wish you a happy birthday. So happy birthday! “
Colson then asked, confused, “Jack P … Jack P Shepherd?”
Ben joked, “He’s 45 years old today.”
Colson then said, “He’s a big fan of the soap,” and Ben added, “He’s a big fan of the podcast.”
They then joked that Jack might do a recap for the podcast in the future.
The stars of Coronation Street share pictures and videos of Jack P. Shepherd
Tina posted a number of throwback photos of her and Jack on her Instagram story.
Before Tina and Jack played siblings Sarah and David on Coronation Street, they played siblings on the TV series Clocking Off.
She wrote: “Happy Birthday @ jackpshepherd88. I thought I would go to old school and remind you how long you have known me. Here we play Sarah Lancashire’s children while stamping.
Actress Ellie Leach, who plays Faye Windass on ITV Soap, shared a fun behind-the-scenes video on her Instagram story of Jack sneaking up on her.
She wrote, “The laugh of an evil man who sneaked up on me and made me drop cheese and crackers on my top … happy birthday @ jackpshepherd88.”
Julia Goulding, who plays Jack’s wife Shona on screen, posted a picture of her co-star on a bike and wrote, “Congratulations to this cool guy.”
She even posted a tribute to David’s screen dog, David the dog.
She posted a picture of herself and Jack and the puppy that David the dog is playing and wrote, “And I’m sure if he could talk, #Davidthedog would wish you a happy birthday too!”
Corrie will air Mondays and Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. with an hour-long episode on Fridays at 7:30 p.m. on ITV.
