"I'm 72, obviously," he pointed out. "When Corrie aired Norris' funeral, we had a scene with the hearse pulling up – and because of Malcolm Hebden, I thought: 'I'm really sorry that I won't get to work with him again'.

Further in, Neilson also discussed fan encounters on the street, revealing that the general reaction has "changed over the years".

"Roy was creepy at first and for that you get abuse, almost. But now, after all this time, people generally leave you alone, or just smile and put their thumbs up.

"It's amazing where you get recognised, though; when my son was at university, I remember going to pick up his stuff for the holidays one year and realising that I'd been in the lives of everybody there in their 30s. It's a very strange thing!" he added.
