Can you tell us a bit about your character and what attracted you to the role?

His name is Richard, he's an undertaker and an incredibly upright man and very suited to the rules, he's got a very, very clear idea of what being an undertaker is. What attracted me to the role is you get to see a kind of softer side as the episode progresses. He first appears to be very stiff and straight laced and actually, underneath it all is a softer centre.

What was it like working alongside Greg?

Wonderful. We had a lovely time, it was a great episode, I really enjoyed it. Greg's been somebody who's been in my life through my kids so they were thrilled when I told them I would be working with Greg. We were all staying at a lovely location, in the same hotel and we had a really lovely week.

Do you have a favourite moment from filming your episode?

Well, all of it really! We just had a really fun week and it was really nice to be a part of.

How do you think you would fare as a crime-scene cleaner?

I'd be alright actually. I'm very tidy, what my wife would call OCD, so I’d clean it up to within an inch of its life.


The Cleaner season 2 starts Friday 24th March 2023 at 9:30pm on BBC One.
