Since leaving Emmerdale, John – who picked up awards for Best Actor and Best Male Dramatic Performance at the 2017 British Soap Awards – has embarked on a new acting challenge, seeing him star in the touring stage adaptation of Strangers on a Train.

The 64-year-old said that he was very much enjoying it, and that he couldn’t possibly say whether he preferred working on TV or on the stage. He said: "I don’t prefer either. It's the same job, but the thing about theatre is that it's an event that takes place between you and the audience, which takes place every night."

I keep storing up information for conversations at work and then realise that the only person I’ll be sharing that with is my dog."
