Jude Appleton left Coronation Street viewers a little confused tonight as his compulsive lying reached another level.
This evening, Mary managed to track down her son in a bid to get him back.
Initially, he appeared happy to see her again but he was up to his old tricks, and it wasn’t only because he was asking her for cash.
That’s because Jude was pretending to be a doctor called Ken Barlow – who also had a Northern Irish accent.
Viewers flocked to Twitter with raised eyebrows.
