Speaking to the Daily Star Sunday, the actor, 40, said he would never want his kids to go on the show - despite the daughter of his co-star Danny Dyer appearing on the 2018 series.

The star, who is best known for playing Robbie Jackson in EastEnders, was quick to slam the series for its explicit nature, as well as the desperation of the contestants.
