In a hard to watch moment, he loomed over adorable Piper with a syringe in his hand.

He then bitterly said: “Don’t worry, this is going to hurt me more than it hurts you… then again, maybe not.”

The cameras cut away as the pup started whimpering.

The scenes resulted in 313 complaints sent to watchdog Ofcom.

Speaking via video link today on This Morning after his character was awarded Best Villain in This Morning’s Soap Awards, he said: “Best villain, that’s kind of a dream come true in a way I think.

“I love playing villainous roles, and this one is definitely the most challenging I have ever played.

“Certain scenes like syringing the dog was not… I really didn’t like it, which is a good sign.”

Last night 2iewers were so distressed at the idea of the pet coming to harm, show bosses had to clarify the dog was OK on X (formerly Twitter).
