Coronation Street actor Ben Price, who plays Nick Tilsley tells The Express about his five things he can’t live without.
It's an interesting little read, giving an insight into the actor's private life. Ben says he enjoys travel to Morocco, running, writing and says he's a team player.
And as he lives in Bath and travels to and from work in Manchester by car, he likes to listen to the radio en route.
He says: "Filming for Coronation Street in Manchester and living in Bath means I spend a fair bit of time in the car as it’s a three-and-ahalf-hour drive between Granada Studios and my home. Not that I mind though, as I enjoy having time just driving by myself. In fact, as long as the traffic isn’t too bad it is actually a pleasure as I tune in to Radio 4 and catch up with the week’s current events.
My favourite programme is the Moral Maze as it really digs deeply into complex ethical questions and often covers issues that I haven’t thought about before.
I also really enjoy Woman’s Hour as it tells the personal stories behind the headlines. For a bit of light relief, I will sometimes flick over to Radio 1Xtra.
