“Maybe that was sometimes visible on the show and sometimes it wasn’t.

“We felt we should tell this story in a similar way to other longstanding medical stories like Sinead’s cancer, and really examine what life would be like for Johnny with the disease.

“So we’re going to investigate this by putting a little more spotlight on how it actually is and treating it more like a themed story.”
