Another Corrie fan wrote: "Love how in #Corrie they keep stressing how Jack is like 11 years old when the young actor playing him is clearly around 15 years old." A viewer tweeted: "Did I just hear right Jack Webster is only 11 @itvcorrie I’m sure he’s about 14 #corrie."

Someone else wrote: "Why is Jack in Corrie who looks about 15 in a class full of 8-9-year-olds? Ridiculous. I’m sorry but he needs to be recast, why is he in a school with kids half his age #corrie."
