Actor Elliott told BBC One viewers he was just 15 when he went to his first acting class.
He then reeled off his credits: “Coronation Street, I was just a walk-on, but I got a lot of camera time.”
Elliott had also starred in Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks and it wasn’t long for fans of both to recognise him during his performance.
“Trying to think if I’d know who he was in #Corrie as I do recognise him haha #LittleMixTheSearch,” tweeted one viewer.
Little Mix The Search continues Saturday on BBC One.
