"I share a dressing room with Dan Brocklebank [who plays Billy Mayhew], who is just so much fun and so wonderful," he told Inside Soap. "[He] tells me that everyone who's sat in my chair, their character has died.

"So it's a bit of a haunted chair. Dan has been in the show for 10 years, so that's a bit scary!"
