Clay, commented on the alternate storyline, added: “I think it completely works. Callum is a character who’s got so much to him and so much to explore. That’s why it’s such a joy to play.
“Callum and Ben have both come from troubled backgrounds in their own ways.
“They’ve both taken very different paths, but now they’ve met at the right age, at the right sort of time and at the right moment in their lives.”
