Coronation Street’s Jack P Shepherd and Tina O’Brien starred in ANOTHER TV show together

Did you know?

Jack P Shepherd must have been feeling nostalgic this week, when he shared a throwback snap of himself when he was younger.

While it isn’t unusual for a telly star to share a historic photo, this one was particularly special as it also featured his co-star and on-screen sister Tina O’Brien.

Turns out the pair worked together as child stars BEFORE they were cast in Corrie as siblings.

Alongside the snap of an 11-year-old Jack and 16-year-old Tina standing next to none other than fellow Corrie veteran Sarah Lancashire, he had written: “Flash back to me and @tinaob83 I’m Clocking Off 1999.”

Jack played Charlie Kolakowski in one episode of the series called Yvonne’s story, while Tina played his sister – again! – Adele Kolakowski.

The popular series was based in a Manchester textile factory and also starred Christopher Eccleston and Philip Glenister.

Some of his 175,000 Instagram fans were quick to comment on the photo, with one joking: “Cheers for making me feel old!!!”

Another told Tina that she “hadn’t changed a bit”.

While one wrote: “Really good series that and your son is your double.”

In fact, many of the comments likened a young Jack to his real life son Reuben, five.

Tina joined the cast of Coronation as Sarah in the same year as appearing in Clocking Off, with Jack following a year later.
