Daniel Brocklebank who plays Billy has said the scenes are certainly violent and he and Chris didn’t hold back when filming them.

He told The Sun he was “left black and blue” as “this particular storyline is much more physical” than anything he has ever done before.

But he said despite the pain he was in at times being crammed into a small space for “a couple of days” filming, he did still manage to enjoy himself.

“I just lay there and people would check on me occasionally and offer me a brew,” he said of filming.

“As dramatic as the scenes were, we had a ball shooting them,” he added.
