“At first, I was so happy they were working on set with me, but I think it was, like, day two and they were having a fight on set. Teddy was crying, and I was like: ‘Oh my god, what have I got myself into here?’”

However, despite the drama, Adam, 34, is thrilled to be working with Scarlett – whose parents are Coronation Street stars – and his brother Ryan Thomas and Ryan’s ex, Tina O’Brien – and Teddy, who he has with wife Caroline Thomas.

He said: “Scarlett’s just incredible and I get to sort of teach her and guide her in the right way. was a little bit nervous on day one, and now she feels at home.

“Just watching them grow on set. […] It’s been an amazing experience for us all.”

However, he admitted Scarlett has picked up some bad habits from him.

He explained: “I was like: ‘Scarlett, have you learnt your lines?’ And she was like: ‘Well no, I’ll just learn it now.’ ‘Well, what do you mean you’ll just learn it now?’ And she was like: ‘Well, you do.’ [I told her]: ‘Don’t do what I do’.

“But no, she’s been amazing and I don’t think she needs any advice from me. I mean, she’s got her dad who’s been there and done it, and her mum as well. So between the three of us, we’ve definitely helped her a little bit.”
