Jack P Shepherd: Coronation Street's David Platt addresses major set moment ‘Did f*** all’

Jack P Shepherd, 32, shared a post on Instagram where he took fans behind the scenes of the 2015 Coronation Street live episode. In the snap, the David Platt actor is strapped up to an enormous camera, which he was asked to carry on his back while “trying to run”.

Jack shared with his 360,000 followers that they only managed to grab a one-second shot with the device, as a counterweight placed around the front to support him, “did “f*** all”.

He recalled: “5 years today we filmed the promo for The Live and that is the heaviest thing I’ve ever had on my back while trying to run.

“The brass thing at the front it a counter weight, which did F*** all, we only managed to get a 1 second shot that you can see when I’m running down the ginnel as the camera started to snap off and had to grab it quick.

“Luckily I did as it was worth £250,000 – what a time to be alive tho eh guys! @tinaob83 @paula_laney @seanjward.” (sic)
