She said: "The most fun you can have in Stratford upon Avon in mid-December. Great story and lovely talented cast."

Ted added: "I was so delighted to be asked to appear on Shakespeare & Hathaway having worked with Jo Joyner in Ackley Bridge and Mark Benton in CBBC's The Slammer before.

"The role of both a bingo hall caller and murder suspect was novel to say the least, and I got to stay in Stratford-Upon-Avon - but I didn’t manage to meet up with old William Shakespeare.

"All in all a Midsummer Night’s Dream' of a job."
