Dominic Cooper has revealed he’s not the untidy flatmate James Corden makes him out to be.

The pair – who starred together in The History Boys – live together in London, and the Mamma Mia! star (pictured right) claimed the Gavin And Stacey actor has given him a bad reputation.

“He’s given the impression to the neighbours, and to various people he’s spoken to, that I’m the messy one, but I’d like to adjust this comment – it’s not me! I’m the nice tidy person that’s nice to live next to,” he said on GMTV.

“The neighbours are terrified of me because each time I go away, James blames the noise and the horrendous behaviour on me.”

Dominic, who is dating Amanda Seyfried, admitted he has a special bond with James.

“I don’t know what to do without him. I often find him cuddled up next to me in the early hours of the morning. It’s very secure. It’s all one needs, a nice good cuddle-up, and then everything will be alright,” he joked.

“It’s a bit sad, we can’t get away from each other. I should have moved out, we should have gone our separate ways. We had a year together and… I’m now the teenage boy in his house living upstairs in an absolute state of chaos. But we have an awful lot of fun.”

He added: “There’s going to be terrible separation anxiety when we finally do part.”
