The actor - who plays Gary Windass in the Weatherfield soap - told RTÉ Ten that he loves working with the cast.
"It's nice that we've settled in now," he said. "Debbie [Rush] and Steve [Huison], who play Anna and Eddie, they're just so much fun to work with and they're a great double act.
"And I think they'll be around for many years to come. I love working with them.
"Everyone says it, it's so clichéd, but everyone gets on and it's like a big family."
He added: "We kind of hang out together and it's just a good laugh. We're so lucky to do what we do."
Earlier this month, it was reported that an upcoming plot will see Gary serve as a bomb disposal expert in Afghanistan.
