Recently, the ITV drama confirmed that the schoolgirl, played by Amelia Flanagan, will be targeted online by a bully this summer.

In the soap, April has mentioned she has been sent a few nasty messages about her deceased mother, Donna Windsor (Verity Rushworth) and every time this has been brought up, Cathy Hope (Gabrielle Dowling) has been around, questioning the next move the troll has made.

A recent episode saw Marlon ask his daughter about how she felt after Leanna Cavanagh’s (Mimi Slinger) memorial had been cancelled.

Marlon asked April: “Are you sure this is about Leanna?”

Has it made you think about your mum? I think about her all the time – all the time.

“And it’s hard, when things like this bring back them old feelings,” he confessed to his daughter.

Mark’s grateful tweet comes days after he apologised to Instagram users for going on a “strange” unfollowing spree.

He wrote: “So Instagram seems to have unfollowed a bunch of people that I was following on my behalf,” he started.

The soap star continued: “This happened on Twitter a couple of years ago too. Very strange. Refollowing those people now.”

Mark then said he was sorry to those affected: “Soz if you noticed and thought I was being a tool.

“I promised I wasn’t (on this occasion).”(sic)

The Bolton-born performer also captioned his upload: “Technology conspiring against you Mr Charnock. It happens to us all.”
