‘I had to run across a bridge and look for a guy that was being tortured. I fell, so I’m in a leg brace and I’ve got crutches. I have not missed a minute’s work and I have now been renamed to hop-a-long and hop-a-long keeps trying to hop a long.

‘But I did apparently smash my kneecap, so it’s really painful, I’m not allowed to move it for two to three weeks.

‘I’m acting above the kneecap and I have a wonderful double for below the kneecap!’
