Channique was quick to chime in: "Todd is like the nicest member of the cast, though."

Sharon replied: "I do keep hearing that. Maybe you said that so he won't kill you."

The soap actor also commented on how members of the public react to him when out and about: "I was in IKEA a couple of weeks ago, and I got in a lift; they are huge lifts, they fit about 20 people, it was all very silent, and then someone at the back of the lift said: 'You won't get away with this'."

Although he describes the character's plot as very "dark" and "heavy", the soap star said it was "thrilling" to play Stephen.
