Jack P Shepherd: ‘It’s hard’ Coronation Street star addresses near ‘split’ with girlfriend

Coronation Street favourite Jack P. Shepherd, 32, has revealed his relationship with his girlfriend Hanni Treweek was pushed to breaking point when he asked her to join in with his rendition of Hugh Grant’s dance from Love Actually. The actor entertained fans when he showed off his moves in a skit inspired by the Prime Minister from the classic Christmas film.

However, Jack has since admitted his partner was less than impressed when he “lost his temper” while going into director-mode to create the hilarious video.

Speaking on his podcast the Sofa Cinema Club, the soap star explained that Hanni was a key element of the recreation.

Her role was to stand in the distance, looking stunned and confused after watching the dance routine.

Jack divulged: “I nearly split up with my girlfriend in the process though.

“It’s hard. As she’s got to be in it, she’s the secretary at the end that catches me doing the dancing.”

He continued: “I was being a director and losing my temper a bit about cues and timing. I proper did.(sic) 

“I was there doing it and going, ‘No, you come in on this bit,’ and I’m doing the crab dance. It was funny.”

Fortunately, the couple’s efforts in the cinematic tribute were much appreciated by Jack’s 342,000 Instagram followers.

Sharing the finished result earlier this month, Jack explained he was dedicating his project to the NHS during the coronavirus pandemic.

He said: “Love Actually dance. Wanted to recreate this Hugh Grant dance from Love Actually, a film we covered on the @sofacinemaclub.

“I’m dedicating this to the NHS who have shown that love actually is everywhere & Boris Johnson, have a speedy recovery and get back in No 10. Let’s try and recreate more movie scenes #MyMovieChallenge.”

In the social media video, Jack dressed exactly like Hugh Grant’s character in a white shirt and black trousers.

He was seen shimmying around his home, before he was spotted by his secretary.
