Emmerdale fans were shocked when they spotted Marlon Dingle actor Mark Charnock in an episode of Classic Coronation Street.
Classic instalments of Coronation Street are currently airing on ITV3 every weekday at 2.50pm and 3.20pm.
In an episode which re-aired last week (Wednesday, May 13) soap fans spotted the famous Woolpack chef. The Marlon actor was playing PC Turner.
In the episode, which originally aired August, 9 1995, police were called to the flats where Deirdre Barlow was living.
Deirdre called the police after thinking she heard a prowler. However it turned out to be her young neighbour Jamie.
Jamie’s mum Tricia was out with a bloke and her son didn’t want to stay at a friends.
As the police arrived, viewers immediately recognised PC Turner as Marlon from Emmerdale.

Emmerdale’s Marlon Dingle and Eli Dingle in the same Coronation Street scenes
Jamie was played by actor Joe Gilgun. Soap fans know Joe also went on to star in Emmerdale.
Jamie was a character on Coronation Street from 1994 until 1997. Joe joined the cast of Emmerdale in 2006 playing Eli Dingle, who is the brother of Marlon.

Joe left Emmerdale in 2010, however Mark still remains on the show.
Since leaving the soap, Joe has gone on to have a successful acting career. He has played main characters in Misfits and Preacher, and is currently starring in Sky comedy Brassic alongside Michelle Keegan.
Waterloo Road fans may also recognise PC Turner’s colleague PC Bathurst who was was played by Jason Done.
