Former Coronation Street star Samuel Robertson is back on television screens next month with a new series of the comedy Beaver Falls.

The drama centres on best friends and university graduates Flynn, A-Rab and Barry who go to the US to work as counsellors at an elite summer camp.

Samuel, 26, who played Ken Barlow’s grandson Adam in Coronation Street, says his character Flynn is still trying to live up to his reputation as a ladies’ man in the second series of the E4 comedy.

“He is much more open to the idea of a relationship this time round, but he is battling with his instincts to be a bit of a wild kid. His instincts are very much to be a lothario, but he might be coming round to finding someone special,” he said.

The relationship between the three friends, however, has experienced a much clearer development, with Flynn learning to value their friendship.

During the audition process the Glasgow-based actor met Lark Rise To Candleford star John Dagleish, who plays Barry, and other Beaver Falls co-star Arsher Ali, who received critical acclaim for his role as would-be terrorist Hassan in the satirical film Four Lions.

“We all met on the job and were a bit nervous about how we would all get on because the relationship between the three is essential to the show and the chemistry had to be right from the start,” he said.
