Emmerdale star Lawrence Robb opened up on the "hardest thing" he's ever done, as he vowed "never again" before being flooded with praise by his fellow co-stars.

The Scottish actor, known for his role as Mackenzie Boyd in the ITV soap since 2020, participated in the London Marathon last weekend. He was inundated with messages from his co-stars and fans following the gruelling run.

He had been sharing updates from his training on his social media page ahead of the big day on Sunday, April 21, which saw a record number of people take part. Lawrence first revealed he was doing the marathon in February.

The actor explained earlier this year he was raising money for a charity close to his heart, Samaritans, which aims to provide support to those in emotional distress or at risk of taking their own life reports Manchester Evening News.

He confirmed he was taking part in the London marathon on Instagram, as he snuggled up to his pet dog, admitting he was 'crazy' for doing so. Sharing an update on how it went, Lawrence explained his girlfriend would 'break up' with him if he ever signed up again.

He shared: "My girlfriend said she would break up with me if I ever ran another marathon, I'm here to find out why," in a TikTok video at the starting line. As he recorded himself running, he admitted: "I think I'm starting to see why!"

He also declared: "Help!" before later being seen close to tears before an adorable embrace with his girlfriend and pet pooch on the sidelines. Lawrence was also seen with his medal after completing the marathon as he candidly said: "I think it's fair to say that I definitely know why.... I'm never doing that again. I'm never doing it again!"

The TikTok video ended with a clip of Lawrence back at home as he appeared quite stiff walking around and made an intimate toilet-based admission. Captioning the post, he wrote: "Well that’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done. But the London marathon - completed it mate."

He added: "This is my best @raphaelrowe impression (it’s probably tragically bad) but it helped. Ach well. Thank you to all the support. You have no idea how much you helped! Unreal!" And his Emmerdale co-stars were quick to respond.

Rosie Bentham said: "Champ." Daisy Campbell replied: "ooohooo! Well done lawrence." Kevin Mathurin commented: "Well done mate." Paula Lane shared: "Well done!!!!"
