Last year the comedian, real name Leigh Francis, revealed how he was relying on Samia Ghadie, who plays hairdresser Maria Connor, to get him a part on the long-running show.

Speaking at the time, he said: "I suppose my favourite soap would be Coronation Street because I know more people in Corrie than I do in other soaps.

"I'm like, 'Hey, how's it going Michelle Keegan?' 'Are you all right, Samia Ghadie?'

"I'm always telling Samia because she seems to be my gateway in to the Street, and she always introduces me to the producers and writers at showbiz events."
