The 52-year-old claimed his account had “unfollowed a bunch of people” without his knowledge.

The Marlon Dingle regular suggested technology was “conspiring” against him

As soon as realising, Mark immediately updated his 45,000 followers and gave his side of the story.

He posted a statement on the picture-sharing app, saying he was re-adding those unfortunate few.

“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 effected.

He signed off: “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.”

Express.co.uk has contacted a spokesperson at Instagram for comment.

Mark has been a regular face in Emmerdale since 1996, after two minor roles in fellow soap Coronation Street.

His first credited part came thanks to 2point4 Children, however he is now best known as Marlon.

In 2004, he won the award for Best Male Dramatic Performance at The British Soap Awards.

His post comes just days after Mark reveealed how his co-star Amelia Flanagan made him cry while filming a scene.

In next week’s episodes, Marlon discovers his daughter April is being bullied.

He has now commented: “We did a scene by Donna’s grave a few weeks ago, that is the scene where Marlon has just found out. She made me cry in the scene.

“At the end of it I just looked at her, she just sat there, she just done yet another brilliant scene and I just went, ‘You made my cry. If you’re this good now, how good are you going to be when you’re 20?'”

Emmerdale continues Monday at 7pm on ITV.
