Jack P. Shepherd has been bombarded with suggestive messages from a fan with a hand fetish who fantasises about the actor's mitts.

The Coronation Street actor, 31, who plays David Platt in the soap, shared a mortifying screen grab from a follower who has been messaging him since September.

Jack's over-amorous fan complimented his paws in the messages, shared close-ups of them and even wrote: "I want to do things to your hands and nails".

He eventually gave in and responded back, according to a screen grab published by The Sun Online .

"REALLY!? Would never have guessed!" Jack wrote sarcastically.

His admirer often responded to Instagram stories in which the star's hands were on full display.

He has a number of dates lined up and the £250,000-a-year star will charge less than the cost of a drink to say hello and have a selfie.

A source said: "There is a lot of money to be made from these events, and it's easy money.

"All you have to do is turn up, pose for photos and sip free drinks. It's a very lucrative business - especially because the biggest stars can expect to rake in up to £10,000 from a venue to make a single appearance."

“It’s fair to say Jack will be making a fair bit more than £3 per person that turns up.”
