Episode 51: Acting Special with Broadchurch's Shaun Dooley

Acting, accents, having four kids and losing your on-screen virginity to Jane Horrocks - this episode covers all these topics and more!

Our guest is the fabulous Shaun Dooley, who played dodgy dad Ricky in Broadchurch. He reveals the one thing he insisted on before taking the role, and what his wife said when she realised why the house was full of bluebells.

With four children and over a decade of parenting experience under his belt, Shaun gives us his top tips for raising kids. We talk finding fame as a dad and Shaun's most embarrassing moments, both on- and off-screen - you'll never hear Wind the Bobbin Up in the same way again.

Meanwhile, Ellie insults everyone, Shaun gives us some much-needed accent coaching, and Helen excels herself with new game Hooley Dooley.

Shaun is on Twitter (@shaundooley). He is set to star in the new BBC One police drama Cuffs this autumn.
