How’s Guy’s relationship with his daughter Zosia?
Their relationship is completely dysfunctional.
 
Is there any exciting storylines coming up for Guy?
Oh Yes! Wait and see. All around Zosia and Ollie’s wedding. 
What did you like most about being on stage?
I always like the danger of being on stage!

I was sad when I left and very happy on my first day back! 
 
What was the response/reaction like when fans found out you was returning?
It was mixed, a lot of love and then some hate.
 
Would you say your best known for your part as Guy Self or as Corrie’s Karl Munro?
After this storyline, I would say Guy Self!
 
Is there anything else you can tell us about what’s ahead? 
A lot of pain – wait and see!
