The George Shuttleworth actor said: “Too soon?

“Ebay waits for NO ONE!! #BestPurchaseEver.”

The post was accompanied by an image of his gigantic buy, which was placed on his green garden furniture.

The life-size singing Santa will no doubt be a shock to his neighbours if it stays outside.

The cobbles regular shared the news with his 61,000 followers.

One fan said: “Ah Tony, Santa is great, what costume is he wearing for Halloween?”

Others were not as keen, with another commenting: “Oh @TonyMaudsley1 it’s far too soon.”

Tony was met with many amusing comments and some warnings about the noise of this new purchase.

A third stated: “I have one of these Tony, they’re bl**dy awesome except I put masking tape over that sensor on the front as it gave me a heart attack at 2am going for a pee.”

An additional fan was reminded of the star’s work on the hit show Benidorm.

He said: “That reminds me of the inflatable scene from Benidorm. One street by me ends up putting Blackpool illuminations to shame every Christmas, you can probably see it from space.”

The post so far has been met with over 140 likes.

Tony is known for playing Kenneth Du Beke in the ITV comedy series Benidorm since 2011.

In April last year it was announced he would be swapping the sun for the cobbles of Weatherfield.

Tony plays undertaker George, the son of Archie Shuttleworth (played by Rod Hudd).

His role carries on the legacy of Archie, who was killed off the show in 2018.

Roy passed away at the age of 83 in March 2020, pushing the soap to carry on the Shuttleworth legacy.

Since Tony hit screens he has made a lasting impression with Coronation Street viewers and locals.

The TV star recently hit the headlines after connecting with an old friend and buying some of his artwork.

Tony bought a piece that contained memories of where he grew up in Kirkby.
