Coronation Street fans spot prop blunder as old actor appears years after quitting role | The Sun

CORONATION Street viewers were left baffled when they noticed a huge gaffe during the latest episode.

Fans of the ITV soap opera noticed that something was amiss with one of the props in the Platt household.

During Monday's visit to the cobbles, the family were experiencing another set of woes as the presence of the evil Stephen Reid continued to loom over them.

Audrey had become fixated on preserving his memory but the rest of the clan were keen to forget he ever existed.

At the centre of conversation was Stephen's prized journal.

Audrey already had Jenny and Carla on her case about accessing the book for clues to the whereabouts of the stolen Underworld money but Gail was also keen to give it a read to see just what Stephen had been saying about her.

However, amidst the chaos of the journal, fans were left taken aback by an obvious glaring error.

The soap's prop team had left a photo visible of a former actor on the showwhose part has since been recast.

Max Turner, the stepson of David, has lived in the Platt household for close to 15 years but has been played by two actors during his time on the show.

Initially child star Harry McDermott took on the role before he was axed and replaced by Paddy Bever two years ago.

As Gail pondered over the journal, a huge photo of Max, played by former actor Harry, could be seen directly behind her.

The soaps are known for being clever and creative when it comes to covering up previous actor but it seemed that this failed to be picked up on by anyone.

It made it even more obvious as the current Max appeared opposite Gail and facing the photo during the scene.

Reacting to the blunder at home. one fan wrote on X – formerly Twitter: "OMG you'd think they'd change this if it's a new actor ridiculous."

Another echoed: “They haven't bothered changing the photos to the new Max."

Before a third added in agreement: "Well spotted."

Max has had a rough 12 months on the cobbles thanks to her terror plot at the start of the year, a prison stint and a rocky romance with Lauren Bolton before leaving her for his cell mate's sister, Sabrina.
