Danny-Boy, 24, has been working with mental health charity Mind on the storyline.

He said previously: “I have spoken to the charity and their advisers to gain a better understanding of depression. I am actively involved in the direction of the way the story is going because it is such a tender subject.”

Lee’s heart-to-heart with Linda screens on the BBC One soap on Thursday October 1.
