Charlie Condou gets asked for autographs whilst using the toilet.
The 41-year-old actor, who plays midwife Marcus Dent on 'Coronation Street', has revealed that fans of the soap opera often ask him for his signature at inopportune times, including trips to the loo.
Charlie lamented to Attitude magazine: "I've been asked for a picture while trying to deal with my two year old having a tantrum or trying to wolf down a sandwich in my only 10 minute break.
"I've had people interrupt me on the phone or even at the urinal - seriously."
However, the actor doesn't act like a diva when approached by an excited fan and always takes a moment to chat or give them a quick autograph.
He said: "I always make time. It only takes a minute. Those people are the reason I have a job I adore."
Charlie now has some time to himself, though, as he exits 'Corrie' this week following the breakdown of Marcus' relationship with Todd Grimshaw (Bruno Langley).
The soap star quit his role to spend more time with his two children and his partner Cameron Laux.
