Coronation Street star Jack P. Shepherd’s young son Reuben makes cute TV debut

Watch out Weatherfield! The young son of Coronation Street legend Jack P. Shepherd will be pounding the cobbles like his dad before you know it.

Jack's cute little boy Reuben is already on TV and ready to follow in daddy's footsteps.

The proud actor, who has played troubled David Platt in the ITV soap since 2000, has been taking the five-year-old to acting classes.

He recently landed his first job as the youngest member of a family in an ad for a furniture company.

His mum Lauren Shippey, Jack's former fiancee, showed Reuben off to the world on her Instagram page after he made his telly debut.

Jack is now with colleague Hanni Treweek, who works at ITV. They have just returned from holiday in Mykonos and while he's been away, his character has been getting into a whole world of trouble.

David has been sent down for four months for his part in the theft of gran Audrey's money – while cunning brother Nick escaped the slammer.

The storyline has certainly got the showbiz world talking.

The 31-year-old has hinted he could be joining the line-up of not one but two reality TV shows.

He has given an interview about working away from Corrie – and said he is interested in both Strictly Come Dancing and I'm A Celebrity .

Speaking to Best magazine, Jack said: "I would do Strictly over any of the others. I couldn't do Dancing On Ice.

"If I did I'm A Celebrity I'd probably upset someone by saying something that's not PC and lose my job."

Should Jack join the Strictly line-up he could join Andy Murray if the bookies have got things right.
