Daniel Brocklebank, who is best known for playing priest Billy Mayhew in Coronation Street, gave fans a hilarious update this week after a mishap with his jeans.

The actor, 41, shared a snap while out paddle boarding in the fresh air this week. Later, when fully dressed, the star shared a picture of a large rip in the front of his jeans that showed off his red pants below.

Captioning the snap, Billy wrote: "ffs" with a laughing emoji next to it.

Daniel can often be found posting to his 127,000 followers on Instagram, from behind-the-scenes snippets from the Corrie set to selfies and insights into his life away from the soap.

The star's current relationship status is unknown, but last year, Daniel revealed he’d been banned from a dating site because they thought he was an imposter.

The 41 year old attempted online dating after being encouraged by his mum but said he’d since been put off because of the experience.

He explained on Twitter: “My mum suggested I join a dating site … I did and they banned my profile because they thought I was impersonating myself.”

"Brilliant, have they since let you re join now they know it’s you?" asked one follower.

And he replied: "Nope. I figured it was the universe suggesting it was the wrong move."

Daniel dated co-star Rob Mallard who plays Daniel Osbourne in the soap, and he then went on to date Mr Gay World winner Stuart Hatton.

It's set to be a tense week for Corrie fans next week. The soap is to start Seb Franklin's murder trial next week after the late character and girlfriend Nina Lucas were brutally attacked by Corey Brent and his gang earlier this year.

So far on the cobbles, Nina (Mollie Gallagher) has been suffering from memory loss following the horrific hate crime attack and in upcoming scenes she will recall the night of Seb's murder after a piece of music triggers flashbacks.

The week starts off with Kelly Neelan, who was arrested earlier this year along with Corey, fearing she will spend the rest of her life in prison as her trial kicks off.

Luckily, a piece of music triggers flashbacks for Nina, who starts to remember bits of Seb’s last day before his brutal murder.

Things become even clearer in her mind when she traces his final steps with Summer, Abi, Asha and Aadi in tow – and soap watchers find out exactly what happened on the night of his death.

Sabeen is confident she can get Corey off the hook until Nina goes to the police station to make a new statement about the night in question.

Things are tense in court as Seb’s final voicemail is played, Asha reveals Corey forced her to lie to the police and he, in the meantime, does a great job of making out he was a victim, claiming that Kelly’s dad threatened to kill him if he reported her to the police.

His case is further aided when Tommy Orpington gives him a glowing character reference. Will justice be done or is Seb’s killer about to walk free?

Elsewhere, Fiz Stape and Tyrone Dobbs struggle with their feelings for one another, and an oblivious Alina Pop explains she’s booked a trip to Romania so boyfriend Tyrone can meet her family.
