“What a way to go. When they asked me to come back for this final storyline I couldn’t believe it, it was too good to turn down.

“As an actor to get your teeth stuck into something so heartbreaking, dramatic and even with humour thrown in is just incredible.

“It’s been three years in the running and people have been desperate for the truth to come out but I don’t think they were expecting that twist.

“Because of that twist the death scenes when they come are even more emotionally charged.”
