The Royle Family actor, Ralf Little, has thanked Blackpool Teaching Hospital’s staff for their dedication over the Christmas period.

The actor, who was born in Bury, took to Twitter to post a video thanking staff for their hard work during this festive period.

He shared the video while his brother was making gravy for their Boxing Day lunch.

Many people have to celebrate Christmas either early or late because they have to work on Christmas Day and Ralf and his family were no exception to this.

He said: “Hey everybody, Ralf Little here with a quick Christmas shoutout to everyone working at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals over Christmas, specific love to the emergency department I know you guys have been through so much in the last two years, the pressures have been enormous.

“My brother Ross and his Mrs, Steph, work at the Royal Liverpool and they are frontline workers as well, so I am well aware of how difficult and busy things are which is why we are having our Christmas on Boxing Day because they have been so busy.

“I know that with additional Covid cases and on top of business as usual it’s going to get tougher, so thanks to all of you for all the hard work and I hope you still get to enjoy yourselves when can.”

Ralf, 41, played Antony Royle in The Royle Family and Jonny Keogh in the first six series of Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps.
