They were shared by Travis Simpkins, who has enjoyed fame himself after appearing on the Channel 5 documentary ‘Benefits Britain: Life on the Dole’, and who previously auditioned for a part in the long-running soap.
Travis told how he bumped into Billy Price, Owen Warner and Ellis Hollins, who play Sid Sumner, Romeo Quinn and Tom Cunningham respectively, outside the Sheffield Water Works Company Wetherspoon pub on Division Street, just off Barker’s Pool, in the city centre.
He said the trio were enjoying a night out after watching the latest outdoor boxing event in the car park of Sheffield’s FlyDSA Arena on Friday, June 4.
"I asked them what they were doing here and they said they were just here for a night out,” he said.
"We went into the Wetherspoons and I had a great night with them. I really clicked with Billy, who said straight away that he just wanted to party.”
In November last year, Travis was convicted of dangerous driving and banned from getting behind the wheel for 12 months.
He said he was ‘deeply sorry’ about the incident and ‘would turn back the clock if I could’.
The 24-year-old told how he is currently working on a number of potential TV projects, which must remain under wraps for now.
He also described how he is teaming up with social services on a scheme to prevent vulnerable young people being exploited by county lines drug-dealing gangs.
