Discussing his new role with the Scottish Daily Record, Ferns said: “For one, I am playing a good guy. I’d say for the first time in my life. In fact, when I got the role I put a post up on Facebook asking for tips.

“It turns out it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. It’s not a huge part but it was great.”
