The actor, who plays David Platt in the ITV1 soap, then decided to visit a branch of Marks & Spencer and couldn't believe his eyes.

Not only were the aisles empty, Jack was able to buy his essentials…a freshly baked loaf of bread, 12 bottles of red wine, teabags, toothpaste and shower gel.

Jack documented his shopping trip on his Instagram Stories, first showing a picture of a huge, snaking queue in a supermarket.

He captioned the shot: "How we spend our days now."

Jack then recorded a short video after arriving at upmarket chain Marks & Spencer.

Amazed, he told fans: "The difference…M&S. No one here. No one here.

"Look at this. Honestly, I feel like I'm on holiday coming to Marks & Spencer.

"Absolutely no one here, everyone's stress free. People are walking round in f***ing flip flops for f**'s sake."

Zooming in on a loaf, Jack said: "Look at this, look at this. Fresh bread. Sliced. And it's hot. Can you believe that? It's like paradise."

Jack's final clip showed him putting his wine in his trolley alongside the caption: "See you on the other side , b**ches."

Emmerdale will now air weeknights at 7pm while Corrie will follow at 7.30pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings.

The change will allow the soaps to stay on air until July – even if production has to be shut down.

Meanwhile, it has also been revealed that Coronation Street is working to a skeleton staff, with all but essential members of crew being sent home following the Government's advice to social distance.

A source told The Sun Online: "It's only the crew who absolutely can't work from home at the set now – everyone else is logging in from home."
