Sid, who's return to the soap has reportedly been halted, opened up on how his cocaine use turned into a habit.

He has told The Sun: "It’s recreational then all of a sudden it’s like, 'Hang on, I’ve got to get through pages of scripts, and then go to work'.

"You think you can do it and get away with it. I thought I could juggle the two, but I soon realised it was a silly idea."

Sid also admitted he once drove to the studios "coked up to my eyeballs and way over the drink-drive limit".

The actor, who recently showed his horrific injuries after a golfball shattered his jaw, added he used "lots of therapy" to get his life back.

"Then you go through the other side and think, 'Well, I don’t really give a s*** because I’m having fun — so two can play at that game'."

Looking back on his womanising ways, Sid admitted: "I’ve no regrets, not even sex in Tesco."
