Clearly excited about his latest role, Louis shared a series of behind the scenes shot as he encouraged his followers to watch it in the US.

Louis starred in Emmerdale from 2019- 2021 and played troubled Danny who groomed girlfriend Sarah Sugden and tricked her into selling drugs on his behalf.

Danny finally pushed Sarah too far at the beginning of 2020 when he tricked her into selling drugs on his behalf, pretending he’d be beaten up if she didn’t get rid of the gear.

When Sarah found out he’d lied, she planted the drugs on Danny and rang the police – and watched with relief as he was arrested.

It wasn’t long until he was back in the village though and started dealing drugs to a stag do at the pub and forced Sarah to hide the pills when the police arrived. 

Louis is the son of  TV personalities Denise Welch and Tim Healy.

"I've already had people saying I've only got a job because of who my mum and dad are.

"There is a bit of a stigma around it, about famous people's kids, but it's good for me to try and disprove that."
