Steve Jackson's friends are jealous he gets to kiss Alison King in 'Coronation Street'.

The new actor - who plays feisty businesswoman Carla Connor's new love interest, binman Trevor Dean - impresses his pals with his alter-ego's romantic life so much, they often take to his social networking pages to call him a "lucky git".

He said: "My mates are so jealous that I get to kiss Carla Connor. They tell me I'm a 'lucky git'. I'm the envy of loads of men - you should see all the comments that people write on my Facebook wall."

The 38-year-old actor found it strange when he first started working on the long-running soap because of his high-profile co-stars.

However, he regularly consults his mother - who is a huge fan of the show - to keep him up to speed on past storylines, characters and actors.

He added: "It was like an out-of-body experience. It took me a good few weeks to get used to it all.

"My mum is a 'Corrie' expert, so we have plenty to talk about. She fills me in on all the characters, what they're doing, and what they've been up to before - all their back stories. I don't need to find out anything from anyone here at the studio!"
