George Lamb has confessed he thinks he's a "terrible" actor and has no plans to follow in the footsteps of his 'Gavin & Stacey' and 'EastEnders' actor father Larry Lamb

George Lamb is a "terrible" actor.

The 35-year-old presenter has admitted he has no plans to follow in the footsteps of his father Larry Lamb - who has starred in 'EastEnders' and 'Gavin & Stacey' - by becoming an actor because he doesn't think he's "up to it".

George exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I tried it once in a short film and I really didn't believe myself. I thought I was terrible. I always thought it was really easy and I thought, I don't know what all this buzz is around it but I find it really difficult. Generally, I don't really like reading fiction that much, I much prefer to read non-fiction so getting myself to believe something is difficult and so trying to get people to believe me [is even harder]. I'm not bad at lying or fibbing but learning whole big passages of text where I've got to believe I'm a medieval king, I don't know if I'm up to it frankly."

The former 'Big Brother's Little Brother' host also insisted he would never return to the show, which is now known as 'Big Brother's Bit On The Side'.

Asked if he'd ever considered returning, he explained: "Not for one minute. I had a great time. I was really lucky to get that gig. I did something like 300 shows. There are not many jobs in the world where you can get all that live experience. It was definitely a great step towards the latter part of my career, so I'm grateful for it but I'm all good, thanks."

Meanwhile, George recently spent 24 hours exploring the culinary and cultural delights of Rotterdam, with Platinum from American Express.
