Ashley Walters: “I Am Quite A Sensitive Guy...”
Ashley Walters recently spoke to The Press Association in the run up to the BBC 1 drama, 'Inside Men', which stars the actor and MC. The former So Solid Crew member spoke of his tough past: "I grew up having to be hard and trying to fit in with everyone else." But he admitted: "I've taught my boys that being a man is not about being hard. Men can cry, men can feel emotions just like women do..."
The father of four added: "I'm not trying to say I'm hard as nails, I'm not. I'm scared of spiders and wasps and I am quite a sensitive guy, to be honest." He also spoke about being jailed for possession of a firearm in 2002 and the lessons he learned: "I came out believing the thing I had to focus on most was being a father and breaking the cycle."
'Inside Men' starts on BBC 1, February 2.
