He co-hosts a podcast with his soap co-stars Jack P Shepherd and Ben Price.

One on episode he explained how a winter sun holiday quickly went very wrong after he ordered a dodgy seafood dish.

He said: "I was in Ko Lanta. I was sat on the beach and the waiter came over and was like, 'What would you like?' And I said, 'I'll have the prawns to start please.'

"I had avoided seafood [on Ben's advice] but I was sat on the beach and I was like, 'How can you not have seafood on the beach?'

"Well, anyway. I'm not doing that again. I've lost about a stone and a half. In seven days I've had one banana and three slices of toast. I'm on the mend now."

He also said that Corrie would likely address his new look.

Speaking on Corrie's Good News, he said: "Our make-up department at Corrie are fantastic.

"They are working really hard on joining the dots on the way people look before and after lockdown.

"For the more extreme cases, our scriptwriters are adding in bits to the script where people comment on other people's new looks."
