Rupert: I went to an all-boys school run by monks. I wasn't happy and was a bit of a tearaway. The final straw came when they cancelled the drama course. So mum and dad sent me to the local comprehensive.
Rupert: [on getting a role in Coronation Street] When I got this part I was daunted by the prospect of being on such a popular programme. And being recognised. My mum was over the moon and a bit jealous - she always wanted to be an actress.
