Coronation Street’s Sam star worries fans as he’s pictured with arm in cast

Coronation Street star Jude Riordan had fans fretting as he was pictured with his left arm in a plaster cast on the set of Sky show Brassic.

The young actor, who plays Sam Blakeman on the ITV cobbles, appears alongside Michelle Keegan in the hit drama.

But he had fans worried with the cast, which ended just below his fingers and stretched down to his elbow as he lounged in a swivel chair preparing to film his scenes.

Jude managed a smile for the camera regardless, as he told fans they had nothing to worry about health-wise.

His Instagram caption read: “I HAVE NOT BROKEN MY ARM!

“Today is Brassic day series 4. This is a BTS shot of Tyler getting his cast fitted. Great fun! Brassic now ready to watch on @skytv.”

His disclaimer didn’t deter some fans, however, as they turned out in full force in the comments section to wish him well.

One follower penned: “Get well soon Jude!” as another said, relieved: “Thank goodness for that!”

“Phew, good news it’s fake!” someone else posted, while a fourth said: “Thank goodness for that, thought you’d had a fall Jude! Lovely seeing you back in Corrie, especially the scenes you share with Isabella [Flanagan].”

“I panicked when I saw the cast!” another social media user said.

Jude confessed that he’s still not old enough to even watch the show, despite appearing in it as Tyler.

Born in 2011, he turned 11 this year after making his television debut back in 2017 on The Secret Life of 4, 5 and 6 Year Olds.

Jude isn’t the only famous one in his family, either, as his dad Paul Riordan has acted as director on several soaps including Corrie.

He directed episodes of Hollyoaks from 2008 until 2020, along with instalments of Emmerdale and Casualty.

Paul was there to congratulate his son on his NTA win last year, taking to Twitter to say: "Well this is pretty special… Proudest dad in the universe!"

He followed up: "Still processing what just happened! Our boy up there following in the footsteps of the greatest in telly. Enjoy it all @JudeRiordan you deserve everything!"
