icky Champ says "EastEnders" viewers have been berating him in his local supermarket since his character targeted Dr. Harold Legg.

The 38-year-old actor has been getting some "looks" in Tesco since his alter-ego Stuart Highway turned his calculating ways towards the legendary Walford medic - played by Leonard Fenton - and he has also been bashed by people who have said they "can't stand" him, which he takes as a "backhanded compliment".

He said: "I loved playing alongside Leonard and June [Brown (Dot Cotton)], they both bring a wealth of experience to the table, and I was really proud to be sharing the screen with two people I grew up watching.

"I've had a few looks about it all in Tesco.

"What I found with the Dr. Legg stuff is that the people were even more like, "I can't stand you." All those backhanded compliments are pretty cool."

While Ricky sees it as a positive that he is making an impact as evil Stuart, he will not let his 16-month-old daughter Beatrix - who he shares with wife Samantha - tune into the BBC One soap, because she is too young to understand the difference between fact and fiction.

He said: "My daughter doesn't really understand the concept of her daddy being on the television, and I've actually shielded her from seeing me being angry on screen.
