Speaking on Good Morning Britain, he told hosts Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway: “Well I’ve only seen two episodes.

“The BBC are a little reluctant to show me the entire thing.

“I completely understand why that is because I’d be a loose cannon for them, I’m the son and it’s how I would take it.”

Seymour went on to add he thinks actress Sophie Cookson took on the role of his mother well.

“There are times I see my mum in her.”

Speaking about his mother, Seymour told Ben and Kate: “My mum was even naïve when I knew her.

“I was born 10 years after these events. But the woman I knew she was a devoted mum.

“She was quite a character, who was eccentric, funny and loved driving. We would laugh so much.”
