DAVID PACKS A PUNCH!
And so does Jack P Shepherd, by the looks of it…
It’s dangerous business being in a soap, as the Street’s Jack P Shepherd (David) found out recently!
The actor was on location with co-star Julia Goulding to film scenes where David and Shona end up in a scuffle with a rather intimidating mystery man. However, fearless David refuses to cower and lays into the fella – which caused Jack to injure his hand!
“Jack had to have his fingers taped up, and was promptly given an ice pack for the swelling!” exclaims our Weatherfield insider. “He’s a good sport, though, and it didn’t seem to hamper the rest of the day’s filming.”
Street chiefs are keeping tightlipped on why David and Shona come to blows with the bloke, but whispers suggest he’ll turn out to be Dane Hibbs, the father of Shona’s son Clayton. It looks as if the brute takes a pop at Shona, prompting David to leap to the defence of his new girlfriend.
But it was all smiles behind the scenes, with Jack and Julia giggling away. Perhaps that was because they realised a keen canine was watching on over the top of a wall. The lengths some dedicated fans will go to, eh?
