The 57-year-old star, who has played shopkeeper Dev Alahan in the hit ITV show for more than twenty years, found himself on the other side of the counter when he stopped off for a bite to eat at the Subway branch at Doncaster railway station yesterday.

The actor, who has appeared in the soap since 1999, happily posed for pictures with staff – before ordering a six inch veggie pattie sandwich between trains at Doncaster.
