He added: “And Kenny and Brenda were in one as well because obviously, they’re in a lot of scenes together.
“During scenes, there’s so much of passing over a piece of paper or something like that.
“And I do all the time, ‘I’ve got this for mam’, and you walk over and give Vera some information, she takes the paper and that’s fine.
“That’s a dead easy scene, but with Covid, you couldn’t get that close.”
Vera is available to watch on the ITV Hub.
