Jack P. Shepherd, who plays David Platt on Coronation Street, is celebrating being part of the show for 10 years.
In a good, long interview with the Mirror, Jack says: "I've been David Platt almost as long as I've been Jack Shepherd, which is weird! But I've enjoyed it...it doesn't feel like a decade. David's an idiot! I wouldn't be his friend. I wouldn't give him the time of day. But I love playing him and I don't see why I couldn't be here in another 10 years. By then he could own the Rovers or Underworld, or be an out-and-out thug. He could go either way."
