The Hypersonic Missiles singer told Radio X's Chris Moyles how he starred in the first episode of the ITV crime drama starring Brenda Blethyn.

Sam Fender has revealed he had a brief stint as a child actor and even appeared in Vera when he was 15.

Speaking on The Chris Moyles Show this morning, the Hypersonic Missiles singer revealed he dabbled in acting as a youth.

Asked by the Radio X presenter if he went to drama school, Fender replied: "Oh god no, I'm not that posh. I went to an amateur group on a Saturday.

"Me Gran basically was like, 'you're a wayward child and you need to hone all of this [...] I was hyperactive".

Quizzed about some of his paid roles, the Geordie revealed: "I got killed in the first ever episode of that ITV detective programme called Vera set in the North East".

He added: "I lasted like 10 seconds I think."
