Viewers spot Corrie and Hollyoaks stars in famous old Mr Kipling advert
Eagle-eyed viewers have spotted two familiar soap stars in an old Mr Kipling advert.
Earlier this week, troubled teenage Will (Ben Hackett) appeared on Coronation Street after he called up a charity phone line where Paul Foreman (Peter Ash) started volunteering alongside Todd Grimshaw (Gareth Pierce).
Paul broke the rules of the call centre after he agreed to meet Will in person, risking his job in the process.
In an unexpected twist, Will had actually been hired by Todd who then tried to break Paul and his boyfriend up.
Taking to Twitter during Friday’s Corrie, viewers got distracted by Ben’s character as they knew they had seen his face on TV before.
It turns out, the actor played the little boy who steals cake for his older sister in the Mr Kipling advert.
If that wasn’t enough, the girl who plays Ben’s sister in the ad is Hollyoaks actress Niamh Blackshaw, who plays Lara Cutler.
After noticing the similarities, viewers took to social media to share their thoughts.
One tweeted: ‘Isn’t that the kid from the Mr Kipling ad?’
Another said: ‘Is that the lad that takes a cake to his sisters’ bedroom in that Mr Kipling ad??’
While one added: ‘The the kid from the Mr Kipling ad, who saves a slice for his sister?’
