Former Busted star Matt Willis admits that he read his Eastenders lines to his wife in bed.

The 30-year-old Year 3000 singer, who wed Celebrity Big Brother presenter Emma Griffiths in 2008, explained that he often recited his lines in the bedroom.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Matt said: "I always learn lines better when I have someone reading them back to me. We'd sit in bed and read EastEnders scripts.

"It was great fun and really helpful. Emma got into it. Her cockney accent is hilarious."

Matt, who briefly played Stacey Branning's boyfriend Luke Riley on the popular soap, further explained that he may return to The Square one day.

He added: "I have got a pretty full-on year but this was nice to do and I have the chance to come back if I want to.

"McBusted are touring until the end of July then we are talking about South America and Japan at the end of the year.

"I can't see myself doing more EastEnders in this year's schedule but who knows what will happen next year."
