The Sun Online has contacted a spokesman for Coronation Street and is awaiting comment.

The new deal sees Jack’s salary jump by £20,000, meaning he now earns £70,000 a year more than co-stars Simon Gregson and Kym Marsh and £50,000 more than Michael Le Vell.

The 29-year-old, who has been on the soap as David Platt since 2000, was pictured arriving on set two days ago in a new £50,000 Maserati.

Jack, who plays troubled David Platt on the hit soap, flashed a beaming smile as he prepared to shoot scenes with co-star Nicola Rubenstein, who plays evil Pat Phelan’s daughter, Nicola Thorp.

Their day in front of the camera saw them temporarily leave the programme’s Manchester base, which gave dad Jack another chance to go for a spin.

His M-plate vehicle cut a sleek figure on the side of the road as he sidled into a space by a grassy kerb.
