New Hollyoaks star Callum Kerr has revealed his rather surprising connection to former Take That star, Robbie Williams.
Callum, 25, appeared in the Robbie Williams music video for his song Mixed Signals which appeared in his 2016 hit album The Heavy Entertainment Show.
Despite boasting several television credits, the actor claims he is most known for his appearance in the music video.
The hunky Scottish actor played the part of a guy in a bar – hoping to catch the eye of Robbie’s girlfriend.
However he is hoping that his latest role might knock his Take That connection onto the back burner and have people focus on his acting skills.
Speaking to The Scottish Sun, Callum revealed: “The Robbie Williams video was fun. I never viewed it as a big job but it’s the one thing when I go home that people say, ‘Oh, you were in that video’.
“I’m always like, ‘I’ve done six TV shows as well!’ – but nobody knows them. I watched the video a few times when it came out but it’s been a while since I last saw it.”
Callum will be introduced to viewers next week, when he arrives in the Chester suburb as flirty cop George Kiss.
This is after Nancy Osborne is stabbed while breaking up a fight at Hollyoaks High School.
Speaking about his storyline, the Scot said: “It’s touching on such a heartbreaking subject and it’s going to be really wild and really fun.
“It’s bound to happen at some point. He might be dead by Thursday, so who knows.”
Callum went on to reveal that his Grandfather was a policeman and putting on his uniform on-screen will more than likely delight him.
However, despite being renowned for the cast members stripping off, Callum has dashed fans hopes of seeing him in the buff.
“I’m basically covered from chin to toe – sometimes with a hat on too, so I have escaped those scenes so far.
“Although I have no doubt that at some point there will be an excuse for Hollyoaks to write in a shirtless scene.
“I joined the gym as soon as I got here – and now there is some panic working-out going on.”
Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with First-Look previews at 7pm on E4
