Last month on Coronation Street, background artist, Adam Blease, caused a social media meltdown over his appearance as Dirk (not Kirk).
Fans were confused thinking Kirk Sutherland, played by Andrew Whyment, was suddenly replaced by Adam in the above scene with Jennie McAlphine & Faye Brookes.
Fiz clearly said Dirk, not Kirk.
To be fair to the confused Coronation Street viewers, Adam Blease & Andrew Whyment do look somewhat similar.
The hashtag, #DirkNotKirk, has exploded on twitter over the past few days, tonight Adam Blease himself was leading the #DirkNotKirk army into an amazing feat.
#DirkNotKirk became the number 1 trending topic on Twitter this evening which is outstanding.
Although #SuzukiSaturdays may appear at the number 1 spot, Suzuki Cars paid to have that particular hashtag in the number 1 spot which invalidates their position due to the fact it's not based on numbers whereas #DirkNotKirk is.
This means #DirkNotKirk was the number 1 trending topic for a short while on Twitter earlier today.
Well done, Adam. First round at the Rovers on you, is it?
