Coronation Street’s Jack P Shepherd recreates Love Actually dance – and it’s absolutely perfect


CORONATION Street star Jack P Shepherd delighted fans today by recreating the prime minister’s dance from Love Actually in support of coronavirus-struck PM Boris Johnson.

The David Platt actor, 32, put on a suit and grooved around his house to Jump (For My Love) by The Pointer Sisters – just like Hugh Grant’s charismatic leader David.

Corrie’s Jack P Shepherd recreated the PM’s dance from Love Actually – with girlfriend Hanni as the aide

He performed a shot-for-shot remake of the moves made famous by Hugh Grant’s David

Just like in the original, he started out with some light bum-shaking with his back to the camera, before letting loose all over No.10 – or in this case, Jack’s Manchester home.

He threw his hands up in the air at the top of a staircase, before recreating Hugh’s side-shuffle dance between two rooms to perfection.

Performing the same moves made famous in the Richard Curtis classic, he even ended up being interrupted by his assistant, played by girlfriend Hanni Treweek.

Posting the video, Jack referred to his podcast, writing: “Wanted to recreate this Hugh Grant dance from love actually, a film we covered on the @sofacinemaclub.

He begins with a spot of bum-shaking and some arm throwing moves upstairs
He then throws his hands up in the air and grooves down the stairs
Its the same thing that happens on the staircase of Downing Street in the film

“I’m dedicating this to the NHS who have shown that love actually is everywhere & Boris Johnson, have a speedy recovery and get back in No 10. 🤘🏻let’s try and recreate more movie scenes.”

His soap co-stars were delighted, with Helen Flanagan writing: “OMG I LOVE this ❤ you two are goals.”

Colson Smith told him: “‘Love Actually Is All Around’” while Adam Thomas wrote: “😂😂😂😂😂😂 Amazing.”

Julia Goulding wrote simply: “Ha ha ha! Mint!” while EastEnders veteran Adam Woodyatt applauded: “Brilliant 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻.”
