Jack said: "We have a Platts' WhatsApp group. I've binned her from the group because she's no longer a Platt."

However, for these Corrie nuptials Simon Gregson - who plays Steve McDonald - took a laser quest game on to the wedding set and challenged Colson Smith (Craig Tinker) to a game.

Jack added: "There's a lot of people with books, a lot of people asleep, on iPads, people bring sweets and chocolate biscuits.

"Si Gregson has brought in laser quest. That's good."
