Jack P Shepherd reportedly charges his fans £3 for tickets to meet him at nightclubs.
The Coronation Street actor apparently has a string of club appearances lined up this month and had one at Liverpool’s Electrik Warehouse on Friday night.
According to The Sun, party goers were charged £3 for tickets to the meet and greet event.
It’s been said that posters promised “1000 free Gail Platt masks, to make Jack feel at home”.
Despite being one of the soap’s highest earners with bosses reportedly offering him a £250,000-a-year deal in a bid to keep him on the show, Jack apparently started booking personal appearances after watching his co-stars earn cash by doing similar events.
There is a lot of money to be made from these events, and it’s easy money.
A source told the publication: “There is a lot of money to be made from these events, and it’s easy money. All you have to do is turn up, pose for photos and sip free drinks.
“It’s a very lucrative business – especially because the biggest stars can expect to rake in up to £10,000 from a venue to make a single appearance.
“It’s fair to say Jack will be making a fair bit more than £3 per person that turns up.”
Ent Daily has contacted reps for Jack for comment.
Jack, 31, has played David Platt in the ITV soap since 2000.
Earlier this year, it was reported that Jack had been fined by ITV bosses for advertising the clinic which carried out his hair transplant.

9 months it’s been since I had my hair transplant, this is the first time I’ve compared pictures to what I used to look like. I decided to get it done as it was affecting my mental health. To the point where I considered giving up acting and not being in the public eye. Thank you so much @asimshahmalak and everyone at Crown Clinic #hairtransplant #fuetransplant ❤️
A source told the Mirror: “Jack got a real dressing down and was told not to repeat his behaviour. It was a very serious breach and he was left in no uncertain terms that he had overstepped the mark.
“He was told he was being fined and the figure was a couple of thousand pounds.”
Dad-of-three Jack, 31, is believed to have had 3,000 hairs implanted into his scalp.
He said that he “decided to get it done as it was affecting my mental health.”
