Coronation Street’s Alan Halsall, AKA Tyrone Dobbs, cracked up during a blunder with his on-screen grandmother Evelyn.
The Corrie star is in the middle of a big storyline involving Evelyn, played by Maureen Lipman, as he tries to find out where he is from and who his family really are.
But things seemed to get a little silly on set when his on-screen sparring partner wandered off at the wrong moment, leaving them both in fits of giggles.
In Friday night’s episode, Tyrone followed his grandmother to the home of her friend, James, a disabled man with whom Evelyn regularly holidays.

Tyrone was jealous but when he met James, he discovered his grandma was talking about him all the time to her mate, making him feel assured in her affections.
But when James mentioned it was actually Evelyn who left him at a police station, rather than his actual mother, he was heartbroken, and angry at his newly discovered gran for her shocking deceit.
Alan, the actor who plays Tyrone, has instead shared a video of one of the filming momens when Evelyn catches him hiding and watching where she is going.
The pair have a heated row and Evelyn goes to run off, strutting off towards the house in anger.

Alan looks a little confused as comedian Maureen does this, as clearly she has some more lines before she stalks off in confusion.
The actor struggles to hide his composure as he tries to keep going with his lines, all with a little smile on his face, but Maureen holds her nerve.
But soon even her angry face dies down and she collapses in hysterics, and Alan joins her.
While filming may have been fun for the pair, there is set to be further heartbreak next week when Tyrone confronts Evelyn about her deception.

She will try and explain the truth of who his mother is, and why she decided to leave the young lad at the police station.
Eventually Evelyn even enlists the help of Roy Cropper to win Tyrone round, but will they be able to repair their already fractured relationship?
Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
