When asked in an interview with the BBC whether he was a "hunk" in his teenage years, Witts responded: "No, not in the slightest, I had braces and glasses and long hair!"

Revealing the extent of his fitness regime, the 20-year-old is also quoted as saying: "I've been training for about five years now, just as a hobby. Everyone says that it's a bit much, as I train five times a week, but it's just a hobby, everyone's got a hobby.

"I do weightlifting, body building. I train with a guy called Chris Jones, who is British number one. He teaches me a lot, he's very good."

Witts also commented on the reaction of female fans on the street, adding: "Sometimes you get the odd screaming girl here or there, but I don't know what to do in those situations.

"I'm just a normal human being - I don't understand when people are screaming at me or hyperventilating." Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
