Speaking of his new role and character, Les said: "He's really nice guy. I think he's kind of innocent. He's been a very successful antique dealer but he's looking for love. He's
searching for love and really believes he's found it with George, his young, new husband. He has been a very good friend to Jean too."

Les revealed he relished at the chance to work with Sally once again after becoming firm friends when they joined forces in the past.

He said: "It was so lovely to work with Sally again. We did a tour called Eurobeat, all about Eurovision, a few years ago now and we did nothing but laugh.

"We really became firm friends while we were doing that and this has just been like picking up that friendship again. As soon as we got out to Malta, it was just like, let's have a laugh."
