Loughran's Doctors character John Smith is billed as a "terrifying" figure who is so dedicated to his cause that he has "lost pretty much any sense of humanity".

Dressed in combat fatigues and often seen behind a mask, John is always the first to throw something at the police at demonstrations - and that's just what he'll do on camera.

Although best known for portraying Butch between 1994 and 2000, Loughran was also a regular cast member on ITV1's Blue Murder.

Doctors airs Loughran's episode on Tuesday, December 11 at 1.45pm on BBC One. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
