Praising Foreman's influence, Witts explained: "Jamie is a big fella but he's a big softie really.

"Under that tough image he's got a heart of gold. I hadn't done a lot of work on screen before and he has really taken me under his wing.

"He's been there to tell me when I'm rubbish and when I'm doing well, so that's really great."

Joey guesses that Derek asked Kat to recruit him for the football team.

Witts added of his inexperience: "I was absolutely bricking it when I came to my first scene."

Meanwhile, the star also declared that he isn't similar to his lothario alter ego Joey, who makes his presence known on Albert Square in next week's episodes. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
