Coronation Street star, who plays David Platt on the ITV soap, gave his comments on the latest episode of his Sofia Cinema Club podcast, where he detailed his experience with his co-stars Colson Smith and Ben Price.The trio discussed their start to the new year before Jack weighed in, sharing how he had later discovered that he had Covid."I had the [Covid].

It caught me. No symptoms, nothing," the 34-year-old said.Later in the week, however, Jack realised something wasn't right when he hopped into his shower and couldn't smell his shampoo.The Pudsey-born actor added: "I'm in the shower Monday morning, and I can't smell the shampoo."And I go, 'This is weird.' Shower gel, nothing."He stressed that the shower gel, given to him by his mum as a gift for Christmas, was from a brand he hadn't used before.It subsequently left Jack wondering whether the product was "just sh**" or if he couldn't smell anything because he was coming down with Covid-related symptoms.The father-of-three knew there was something wrong when he then went to brush his teeth but couldn't taste the toothpaste or the mouthwash.Jack went on to contact Corrie bosses, who advised him to take a lateral flow test, which returned with a positive result.While it's unclear when the British Soap Award winner plans on returning to the ITV programme, he did reveal that his taste has now come back.And by the look of things, the shower gel given to his mum wasn't so bad after all as he quipped he can now taste the product."Other than the smell or taste I wouldn't have known that I'd got it," he continued."So that's been my week."Jack has been part of the Coronation Street cast since 2000 and is currently embroiled in a major storyline as his character's ongoing feud.

Thomas Frank slams "unbelievably lucky" Man Utd and dismisses "crap" excuses
Manchester United for being “unbelievably lucky” in their win over the Bees on Wednesday.The Red Devils travelled to London for the rearranged Premier League clash, with Ralf Rangnick’s side claiming a welcome 3-1 win in their battle to finish in the top four.But during another dreadful first-half, the visitors had David de Gea to thank for keeping the scores goalless heading into the break, with the Spaniard pulling off a series of crucial saves.De Gea twice prevented Mathias Jensen from breaking the deadlock in the first period, with United coming out as a different team for the second period.United quickly punished Brentford for missing those chances when Anthony Elanga controlled Fred’s pass before heading in from close range 10 minutes after the interval.Mason Greenwood then provided the tap-in on a wonderful team goal after Bruno Fernandes raced onto Cristiano Ronaldo’s brilliant chest down.And Rangnick’s side made sure of all three points when substitute Marcus Rashford fired in at the near post.Though Ivan Toney pulled a goal back following a scramble, it was too little, too late for Brentford.Who was man of the match in Manchester United's win over Brentford? Let us know in the comments section...With his side having dominated the first-half, Frank was understandably unhappy to have taken nothing from the game.And in his post-match interview, he slammed United for being “unbelievably lucky” while dismissing the excuse of his side missing so many chances.“Unbelievably proud of my team.

Every Time I Die bassist Steve Micciche releases lengthy statement following band breakup
Every Time I Die frontman Keith Buckley and the band’s other four members – leading to their breakup this week – bassist Steve Micciche has given his perspective in a lengthy string of tweets.On Tuesday (January 18), Micciche, guitarists Jordan Buckley and Andy Williams, and drummer Clayton “Goose” Holyoak all shared a joint statement saying their last show with the band took place in December.They wrote: “While we hoped to come to an agreed upon legal statement that outlined the truth, we were informed today of something planned to be released not mutually agreed upon that consists of inaccuracies and controls a narrative to benefit one.”The message went on to say that there has been “no direct communication” with Buckley, saying “it’s either impossible for direct communication with him solely or we’ve been cut off to any and all communication by him himself”.The following day, Buckley responded with a lengthy statement, saying that “any emotional [or] metal connection” he had with his former bandmates had been “thoroughly severed” when he got a letter from a law firm on December 20, which Buckley had shared on the same day the band’s statement was issued.The letter said that the firm, Savur Law, had been retained by the rest of the band “for legal representation in connection with a separation agreement” between them and Buckley, requesting he contact them to discuss “the business terms of an amicable separation between the parties”.The news came after the band said last month that they were working on issues with Buckley “privately” after the singer announced an impromptu hiatus days earlier, saying he’d be skipping three of the band’s scheduled shows.“Caring for my own mental health has taken priority over EVERYTHING
