“I was asked to do a show at a small theatre in Shrewsbury, which held 250. The idea was for me to be interviewed on stage and for us to show a few clips.

“We expected there to be a reasonable audience but, in fact, we sold out. We’ve been on the road ever since. ”

What’s the show about?

“It’s about stories and fun, it’s about sharing with fans the things they won’t know from behind the scenes. There are some amazing stories – about the time The Beatles asked me to star in their Magical Mystery Tour film and I said no, about the time I was tracked down by Dr Who fans in America because I’d starred in a series alongside Tom Baker, about David Jason and Nick Lyndhurst in Only Fools and Horses and about my time on the cobbles in Coronation Street.”

The show is at Cast tomorrow. Box office: 01302 303959 or go online at Cast in Doncaster
