Ricky Norwood: 'Fat Boy gets a lotta love'
The actor, who won Best Newcomer at the 2011 National TV Awards, told whatsontv.co.uk: "It's been an amazing turnaround. When I first came in people used to say to me 'I don't like, I don't like you on my screen!' But now people say to me, 'You know what, when I first saw you I didn't like you, but now I love Fat Boy'.
His character is a classic unlucky-in-love soul, but Ricky hopes this is going to change. "It'd be lovely if a girl came along and was there for him. Fat Boy's the one who will always run to someone's rescue, so it'd be nice for someone to run to his rescue one day..."
