Young soap star is barely recognisable in throwback snap

He's grown up in front of our eyes!

Guess who? Fans were delighted to get a glimpse of some much-loved characters in a throwback Instagram shot, posted by Corrie legend Tina O’Brien.

The image, taken an incredible 14 years ago, shows three Corrie actors bundled in the back of an ambulance after a night shoot, with beaming smiles.

But can you identify them all?

It’s fairly easy to clock Helen Worth, on the left, and a 19-year-old Tina O’Brien on the right.

But the fresh-faced lad in the middle is none other than Jack P. Shepherd, who looks almost unrecognisable from today!

Tina captioned the image: “#tbt #2003 A behind the scenes picture taken on a Polaroid of a young @jackpshepherd88 Helen Worth and Me.

We are all wrapped up in foil in the back of an ambulance. Although very happy we are trying to warm back up after being dunked in the beyond freezing (dirty) Manchester canal in January in the middle of the night.”

Long-term Corrie experts will recall that the episode in question was one of writer Richard Hilman’s most memorable.

It saw the family – mum Helen and siblings Jack and Tina – almost murdered in a car chase.

While another said: “I could not emotionally deal. Great storyline. Corrie in its best days!”

It was a cracking storyline – although Tina and Jack have both featured in plenty of belters through the years. More throwback snaps please, Tina!
