Coronation Street star Jimmi Harkishin has been seen enjoying a date with a 150-an-hour escort.

The 52-year-old actor, who plays Dev Alahan in the ITV soap, was pictured out in Manchester with bisexual escort and porn star Kat Lee.

And while Jimmi appeared to be thoroughly enjoying his evening with the 25-year-old brunette, their frolicking during the press night of Chicago at Manchester's Palace Theatre apparently didn't go down too well with his Corrie co-stars.

According to the Daily Star, soap
stars Julie Hesmondhalgh and Jennie McAlpine 'looked on with open
mouths' as the pair cuddled up inside the theatre.

A source told the newspaper: 'This
was classic Jimmi. He just loves to shock.

'They were chatty and animated
during the performance and seemed very much together and easy in each
others' company.'

Jimmi and Kat then caused even more
of a stir when they left the performance during the interval and were
seen driving off together.

Kat first made a name for herself
along with her twin sister Kit, real names Noor and Zaynor Ellemore,
when they appeared on The Jeremy Kyle Show together along with their
grandmother back in 2008.

Now Kat works as an escort, with her agency Peaches And Cream describing her as 'curvy and sexy with enhanced breasts'.

When called, a source at the agency
said: 'Kat is as mad as a hatter.

'She loves the attention being with
someone famous will give her.'

Meanwhile, Jimmi is alleged to have told a friend that while the pair were seen together, they are not in a relationship.

A Coronation Street source is quoted
as telling the publication: 'Jimmi says they met through friends, he
knew who she was and what she did for a living but they are not dating.'

Jimmi, who has two children with his
ex Susan Beaton, was romantically linked to glamour model Miranda Beattie when the
pair were seen out together in 2004.

A spokesperson for the actor declined to comment on the pictures.
