Raji, who played Ash Ferreira on the BBC One soap, revealed how he mocked Grantham on set after the story hit the tabloids. Grantham, better known as Walford legend Dirty Den Watts, was so annoyed over his co-star's behaviour that he refused to speak to him for the rest of their time on the show.
Leslie became embroiled in controversy in May 2004 after it was revealed that he had performed sex acts in his dressing room and sent X-rated images to an undercover reporter over the internet.
In an interview with The People, Raji spoke about how the cast reacted to the reports. He revealed: "People were walking around on eggshells. The first words out of my mouth were 'Morning Leslie, you f****d up didn't you?'"
James added: "I took pleasure in it. I never liked the guy."
