Jack still enjoys playing villain David Platt

Jack P Shepherd might have been on Coronation Street for 14 years but he’s not got itchy feet yet.

The actor is very content in his role as David Platt on the soap, though admits he’d consider leaving if an incredible offer came up.

I’m quite happy there, I enjoy it,’ says Jack, 26.

But if Hollywood called and told me they needed me and I was the only one as Brad Pitt‘s dropped out, I’d say sign me up!

Who needs Brad?!’

Jack‘s so well known for playing David that people often confuse him with his alter ego but luckily viewers seem to like the character.

He is a villain that you love to hate because he’s cheeky,’ the actor says.

People quite warm to the character.’

Coronation Street is up for several gongs at the British Soap Awards 2014 – watch the ceremony on Sunday 25 May at 8.15pm on ITV.
