Posting on Twitter, he wrote: "Ok @UnforgottenTV friends. Here are the surprise contents packed by the costume dept for #Unforgotten Ep 4 for #sunnysbackpack. I feel there’s a theme here and they’re trying to tell me what they think of me! Thanks all for watching." The backpack included 'Saucy Charades', craft wire, a book of Dolly Parton quotes, and a thermos among other things.

The star revealed that he only looks at the contents of the bag after filming, replying to a fan: "I open it at the end of that day’s filming, that’s when I find out what I’ve been carrying and then post my favourites after the episodes go out."

Another fan asked if they made sure to add light things in the bag, to which Sanjeev replied: "You think that stuff is light?? A large pineapple once with other things was rather heavy but no nothing like a bowling ball or anything." Sadly, the actor is unable to keep the items after filming, and joked: "All returned to the costume department. Some of those things are their personal items. I shudder to think which things."
