The 28-year-old Hollyoaks actor thinks that there are similarities between the two professions.

‘They were always making me take my shirt off!’ he told Now magazine, speaking about Hollyoaks.

‘If you look up the definition of a prostitute in the dictionary, it’s pretty much the same definition as an actor – paid to do whatever.’
