The 24-year-old actor - who plays Lee Carter on the BBC One soap - is glad Matt Di Angelo's character Dean is finally going to get his comeuppance after raping Lee's mum Linda Carter last year.

He told BANG Showbiz: "It's about bloody time. That's nothing against Matt Di Angelo, I love the bloke, but you get quite attached to a storyline after a while and I think it's time that justice is served. I'm not sure how it's going to be served yet but you've just got to tune in and watch it."

Lee is currently dealing with his depression on the soap but Danny-Boy has assured viewers it won't tear his and Whitney Dean's relationship apart.

He shared: "I think they're a strong couple. I think they're kind of the young version on Mick and Linda. I think it's important that they do stay strong and push forward but at the same time, everyone has their limits, so who knows?"

And the actor insisted both Lee and the rest of the Carter family will be heavily involved in the drama this winter.

He added: "I should imagine Lee's storyline will be in and around it at some point because you can't just ignore something like that."
