Antony Cotton has defended his Coronation Street character Sean Tully's suspicions over partner Marcus Dent.
Sean becomes jealous of Marcus's friendship with work colleague Aiden.
His suspicions leave Marcus (Charlie Condou) angry, leading the couple to split.
However, Cotton claims he can understand why Sean gets so upset over the situation.
Speaking on This Morning, Cotton said: "Sean, all of a sudden, is jealous.
"Well actually, there's a reason why, because Marcus has spent loads of time with Maria and now this Aiden's tipped up, so it's getting on his nerves, I think. That's quite understandable."
Cotton hinted that Sean's worries may not be entirely unfounded, hinting that Marcus and Aiden may become more that friends in the future.
He explained: "It's not the case at that moment. But we must all learn to honour our instincts, because I think that Sean's instincts might prove to be right. And I can't say any more than that!"
The actor also hinted that Marcus's desire to start a family may contribute to the end of the relationship.
He said: "They do want different things.
"Sean already has his son Dylan and it's a big responsibility, so he doesn't want to do something just for the sake of keeping something going that maybe has run its course."
