Coronation Street star Jack P Shepherd has attracted an oddball stalker – who is obsessed with his hands.
The actor, who plays David Platt in the ITV soap, is being bombarded with sexualised messages from the crank about his digits.
The finger fetishist pores over social media images of Jack on his official Instagram and Twitter accounts and sends him creepy messages.
In one recent shot the actor is drinking a glass of champagne – prompting the oodball to tell him: “I love your hands and nails.”
Another close up shot of Jack, 31, clutching a glass triggered the remark: “I love your hands and nails.
“I want to do things to your hands and nails.”
The third message read: “I love your hands and nails so much.”
That prompted Jack to reply: “Really, would never have guessed.”
A source said: “Jack thinks it’s pretty funny and harmless so he’s not too worried.
“But he knows to monitor the situation in case the messages escalate from the merely creepy to the sinister or even dangerous.”
It is not the first time Jack has been on the receiving end of disturbing messages.
Last year he was urged to contact police after falling victim to another stalker.
The keyboard warrior bombarded him with vile online allegations for weeks frequently changing their name.
They made vile statements about his ex-lover Lauren Shippey and current partner Hanni Treweek.
Fearing the hate campaign could escalate pals advised Jack to contact police.
But the messages eventually dried up.
The actor declined to comment.
