'Coronation Street' actor Tristan Gemmill has defended co-star Sarah Harding's acting and said it was "unfair" she was criticised so heavily
Tristan Gemmill thinks viewers were "unfair" to criticise Sarah Harding's acting on 'Coronation Street'.
The former 'Casualty' star - who plays Tracy Barlow's latest lover Robert Preston - thinks the criticism his on-screen wife and former Girls Aloud singer received wasn't deserved as he thought she did a "good job" on the show.
He shared: "I got on very well with Sarah and found her delightful to work with - and I thought the criticism about her was unfair.
"She had a lot of emotion to get into a very short space of time, and I thought she made a good job of it."
The 33-year-old blonde beauty was axed from the ITV soap after just four episodes.
Meanwhile, the handsome actor also revealed he was recently stopped in the street by a woman who said he looked like a Robert Preston lookalike.
He explained to The Sun newspaper: "I got stopped in our village the other day.
"This lady came up to me and said, in a deep West Country accent, 'I don't know if you know, but there's a man on 'Coronation Street' that looks exactly like you.
"You could be a lookalike for him. There's lots of money in that - you should look into it'.
"I said, 'Thank you very much, I will go and watch 'Coronation Street' and look!'
"And she walked away thinking she had given me some sound financial advice."
