EMMERDALE’S Mark Charnock has issued an urgent warning to fans over an online imposter.
The soap star is best known for playing Marlon Dingle on the ITV soap.
Mark took to Twitter to share his concerns about someone pretending to be him on Facebook.
Last week he told his 187.7k followers that if anyone comes across the profile, they should block and report them.
Mark said: “Sigh. So apparently some …person…on Facebook is pretending to be me. I’m not on Facebook.
“If you’ve been followed on there by someone claiming to be me, please block and report them.

“What motivates these people? And why would they pretend to be ME? I certainly wouldn’t. Please RT.”
On Sunday he updated fans and said they’re “still going strong”.
Mark tweeted: “Sounds like this individual pretending to be me on Facebook is still going strong.
“Many thanks to those who’ve reported them. Just to reiterate, if you are following me on Facebook…you aren’t. Please avoid them. Fanks! Xx.”
Mark’s alter-ego suffered from a stroke as he was preparing to take his relationship with Rhona Goskirk to the next level in March.
Since then, the recovery process has not been a linear as he recently contracted pneumonia, which led him straight back into hospital.
The actor was left “overwhelmed” as fans reacted to Marlon Dingle’s terrifying stroke.
While viewers were left emotional at the tragic scene, many praised the ITV soap for its portrayal of “real stroke signs.”
The 53-year-old actor, who has played Marlon for almost 26 years, said he was “moved” by the response.
The actor penned: “It’s hard to know what to say to you all, other than I’m genuinely overwhelmed.
