'Hollyoaks' actor Ricky Whittle has revealed he is often left bruised and his clothes ripped by his female fans
Ricky Whittle's female fans often leave him bruised and his clothes ripped.
The 'Hollyoaks' actor - who is to depart from the Channel 4 soap this week - has revealed he rarely goes out with his mates because he is hounded by woman desperate to grab hold of him.
He said: "I don't go out. I can't anymore because as soon as a group of women clock me, that's it. I've had my shirt ripped open, bruises on my arms and my groin grabbed. If a group of men behaved like that to a woman they'd end up in court. I never say no to an autograph or a photo but I don't enjoy being mauled."
The 28-year-old hunk adored working on the soap - where he played policeman Calvin Valentine - but has been taking acting classes to improve his ability since he left the show, in a bid to land more varies roles.
He said: "I've been at 'Hollyoaks' for four years and I've enjoyed every minute of it but I wanted to prove I can do other things. I'm doing acting classes as well because you can always get better."
