The actor, who also played Warren Fox in Hollyoaks, was involved in various shocking storylines during his time in Walford, one of which included his affair with Lauren Branning and battling alcoholism. Jamie continued: "I had such a fantastic character to play. When you're playing someone with a drinking problem, you have to do it justice for the people who are suffering. I studied alcoholism at length. And I’m forever grateful to EastEnders for giving me that opportunity."
