But after bosses saw the impact he had made, Antony was quickly signed up for a full-time contract.

And Antony has revealed how fans approach him in the street to ask where she is.

He added: “I’m often asked where Eileen is. It takes a shorter time to pretend it’s real than to explain I don’t really know because I don’t live with her in real life.

“I just go, ‘She’s at the bingo’. They say, ‘All right, give her my love’ and I go, ‘Will do’.”

The actor stunned fans on the revival of Dancing on Ice earlier this year when he came sixth.
