Blake Harrison may have struck comedy gold with The Inbetweeners - but he wants to do more drama.

The actor, 28, is continuing comedy in new show Big Bad World.

But Blake, who played girl-obsessed Neil Sutherland in The Inbetweeners, said he went into comedy "by accident".

"So far it's working out, but I definitely want to do more drama," he added.

Blake plays jobless and single graduate Ben, who has to move back in with his parents, in the sitcom Big Bad World, which stars Caroline Quentin as his mum.

The actor, who grew up in Peckham, said it was something he experienced first hand when he finished drama school and had to move home for six weeks and share a room with his younger brother.

"We grew up sharing a room, but by this point I was 22 and he was 18. It was quite difficult having two grown men in a small room together," he said.

:: Big Bad World can be seen on Comedy Central on Wednesdays.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
