Things might be hotting up between Keanu Taylor and Sharon Mitchell as their affair takes hold, but EastEnders star Danny Walters, who plays lusty Keanu, has admitted the scenes can be tricky to film.

“Doing those sorts of scenes can be awkward and hard, but we’ve had such a fun time. I’ve been lucky to have the opportunity to work with Letitia.

To have that storyline with anyone in the cast… I’m a lucky guy to work with Letitia because she is so experienced, she is such a joy to work with.”
