The actor is thought to be actually working today and on set as the Corrie make-up team shared a picture of him getting touched up this morning.

It was the first time the make-up crew have returned to work since Covid.

Sharing a picture of Jack, they wrote: “Well wasn’t this a lovely surprise.. You didn’t have to wear a suit for the first day back I makeup 🥳 @jackpshepherd88.”

Jack has just returned from a romantic weekend in London with his girlfriend Hanni Trewek.

The loved-up couple spent time being tourists, seeing the sights, having cocktails at the Ritz and going to the Natural History Museum.

Corrie veteran Jack and Hanni – who worked behind the scenes on the ITV1 soap – have been together for three years.

Hanni worked in the publicity team and once had a cameo in the ITV soap, but they met at a mutual friend’s wedding and then bumped into each other again in Sainsbury’s.

The actor was forced to take a break from filming at the start of the year after catching Covid.

Speaking about his experience on the Sofa Cinema Club podcast he explained: “I have the vid, it caught me.

“I don’t have any symptoms. Nothing. I was in the shower Monday morning and I can’t smell the shampoo and I go, ‘This is weird.’

“Shower gel – nothing. It’s an FCUK box set, Hanni’s mum got me it for Christmas.

 “So I’m using that and I can’t smell it, but I’ve never used it before so I don’t know whether it’s just s**t or I can’t smell it.”

He went on: “So I get out and go, ‘I’ll clean my teeth now.’ Can’t taste any toothpaste or mouthwash. And I go, ‘Ooh, this is a big one’.”

Jack concluded: “I just ring up work and go, ‘I can’t smell or taste.’

“They’re like, ‘Right, do a lateral flow.’ It says I’ve got it. Two lines, see you later.”
