Coronation Street star Alan Halsall tricked fans into thinking he’s expecting a baby with girlfriend Tisha Merry.
The cunning 37 year old took to Instagram to post a snap to his 203,000 which looked exactly like an ultrasound, and fans were quick to believe it was.
However, the caption of the post revealed that this wasn’t actually the case, with Alan writing that it was, in fact, a pretend scan of his liver.
The Tyrone Dobbs actor, who recently shared a peek at his gorgeous garden, penned: “Well, here goes … some exciting news for you all! It’s come as a bit of a shock but now’s the time to share.
“Totally unexpected and we’ve not told anyone, didn’t want to shout it to the world at first until it was confirmed.
“We can now share this wonderful news with you all and we’re very proud to announce … this is a scan of my liver in perfect condition, ready for when the pubs re-open…….”

The joke made by Alan saw his fans and friends taking to the comments section to reveal that they thought he was announcing baby news.
Sally Dynevor, who plays Sally Metcalfe in Coronation Street admitted that Alan “nearly had [her]" with his joke, adding: “Very good.”
Whilst Samia Longchambon, who plays Maria Connor in the soap wrote “omg,” followed by a string of laughing emojis.

And one fan added: “That was really mean. Did you know how happy I felt then!” whilst a third person penned: “You 2 actually need a baby together you’re so cute.” [sic]
Perhaps the funniest reaction of all came as Coronation Street star Sam Aston’s wife Briony admitted she’d “screamed down the stairs” to let Alan’s co-star Sam know that he was expecting a baby, before realising it was a hoax.
Alan, who shares adorable daughter Sienna-Rae with ex wife Lucy-Jo Hudson, is dating actress Tisha Merry, and the pair recently celebrated the first anniversary of their relationship while in lockdown.
