Emmerdale star Lawrence Robb shared his thoughts after a former friend was found guilty of sexually assaulting a woman.
The 29-year-old actor, who appears on ITV soap as Mackenzie Boyd, was previously “friends” with Kevin Guthrie.
Last week Guthrie was convicted of sexually assaulting a vulnerable woman after one night.
During the four-day trial, 33-year-old Sunshine on Leith insisted that he had only “helped” the woman during the night.
However, the jury was told that his DNA was found on the inside of her underwear.
Guthrie denied the charges when he appeared at the Glasgow Sheriff Court.

Guthrie was put on the list of sex offenders.
He is due to be sentenced next month.
My heart is bleeding for the victim. She is a warrior and one of the bravest people in the world! Men who are in positions similar to Kevin – be careful. I think it’s bloody wonderful that you’re pooping your pants right now! 2/2
