Jack P. Shepherd has moved in with one of his Coronation Street co-stars, following his split from fiancée Lauren Shippey. The 30-year-old – best known for playing David Platt in the hit ITV soap – split from Lauren, his partner of 15 years and mother of his two children, in October 2017. He is now living in a new pad with Colson Smith, who stars as Craig Tinker on Corrie, and fellow actor Freddie Bolt. This week, the new housemates took to Instagram to share a series of photos, with Jack posting a photo of the three friends inside their new apartment. "My flat mates. @colsonjsmith @freddieb1993," he wrote.

Following his split from Lauren, Jack has since gone public with his new romance with girlfriend Hanni Treweek, and has shared a number of loved-up pictures on social media. The new couple have been inseparable in recent months, and recently enjoyed a romantic mini-break together. Jack and Lauren, meanwhile, are parents to an eight-year-old daughter and a three-year-old son. They confirmed their split in October, with a spokesperson saying: "Jack and Lauren remain the best of friends and their main focus is the care of their children."

Jack is set to step into the spotlight on Corrie, meanwhile, in a harrowing upcoming storyline. His character David will take centre stage in a male rape story, which will see newcomer Josh drug and attack David after a night out. It’s been reported that David’s on-screen dad, Martin Platt (played by Sean Wilson), will also be coming back to the show in the aftermath of the event.
