TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR CHARACTER.
In this series my character has to grow-up quite a lot as he takes on a 'father figure' role with Paddy, his adopted son. At first he doesn't really like that so much, but that does change.

WHAT'S THE BEST THING ABOUT BEING IN FOOTBALLERS' WIVES?
The best part of being in the programme is working with the cast. We're all young and we have a lot of fun whilst working. We all really get on.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE BEST ABOUT YOUR CHARACTER?
I think most of all I like the fact that he is loyal to his family. He does try really hard to be a good husband and father. He puts his family first.

WHAT DO YOU DISLIKE MOST ABOUT YOUR CHARACTER?
The part of Kyle's character I dislike the most is his lack of strength of character to stand up for himself. He tends to let people walk all over him - although that happens less as this second series goes on. We do see a much tougher side to him, especially when it comes to being protective towards Chardonnay and Paddy.

DO YOU LIKE THE CLOTHES THAT YOUR CHARACTER WEARS? WOULD YOU WEAR THEM AS YOURSELF?
Some of Kyle's clothes are a bit too bright for me. But I do like some of the clothes he wears. In this series some of the suits have been by Ozwald Boatang, and I do wear some of his clothes. He really makes fantastic suits.

HOW DO PEOPLE REACT TO YOU IN THE STREET? DO YOU GET RECOGNISED?
Sometimes I get recognised, and generally people's reactions are good towards me.

WHAT SCENE HAVE YOU MOST ENJOYED OR HATED FILMING SO FAR (IN EITHER SERIES ONE OR TWO)?
In series 1, I had a few nude scenes to film and they were quite embarrassing as they were very early on and none of us really knew each other. However in series 2 - when I knew everyone well and nude scenes would have been fine - I had none!

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR CHARACTER'S HOUSE? AND THE CARS? DO YOU THINK YOU'D LIKE TO LIVE THAT SORT OF LIFESTYLE?
The house Kyle lived in the show is fantastic, and I think the cars are amazing. I would like an element of the lifestyle, the house and cars - but not necessarily the pressure that goes with that lifestyle. The good thing about being in the series is that I get to kind of live that lifestyle when I'm acting, but I don't have to take on the same pressures that real footballers do.

HAVE YOU EVER MET ANY REAL FOOTBALLERS OR FOOTBALLERS' WIVES? DID THEY HAVE ANY REACTION TO THE SERIES?
I have met real footballers and some of their wives, but they haven't had any reaction to series. I didn't ask.

WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR FREE TIME?
Play football!
