EastEnders' Tony Discipline puts socks in his underwear to make his manhood look bigger onscreen.
The actor - who plays Tyler Moon in the BBC One soap - planned to take the socks out of his pants before filming began, but he decided against it when his co-star Matt Lapinskas, who plays his onscreen brother Anthony, didn't take a hat out from his underwear.
Tony told heat magazine: "It's freezing on set. I just want to flag that up. I put socks down my pants, and Matt put a hat down his. Before we started filming, I took the socks out, but Matt didn't take the hat out.
"I was like, 'Sod this!' And put the socks back. All you could see were these huge socks bouncing down the stairs."
Despite going to great lengths to be more appealing onscreen, the pair are both dating co-stars.
Tony and Jacqueline Jossa (Lauren Branning) are together, and Matt is romancing Shona McGarty (Whitney Dean), but the couples prefer to keep their off-screen relationships away from Albert Square.
Matt said: "We don't take our relationships on set."
Tony added: "When we get to the gates of the BBC, we're at work. Kissing scenes are part of our job."
