Bradley Walsh has revealed that filming Law & Order: UK in London can have its drawbacks.

The former Coronation Street actor plays DS Ronnie Brooks in the legal drama, which returns to ITV1 for a second series on Monday night.

London plays a significant role in the drama – but Bradley admitted that filming in the capital can cause problems.

He told whatsontv.co.uk: “People see us filming on the street and gather to watch.

“But it is odd when you’re in the middle of a scene and they perhaps can’t see the camera and they walk up and try and shake your hand, so we have to cut.”

But Bradley said he doesn’t mind being recognised, adding: “It’s not a problem – it’s quite nice actually.”

Law & Order UK returns to ITV on January 11. Season 1 of Law & Order UK is available on DVD on the same day with Season 2 following on Monday February 22.
