Michael Parr's fans send rude selfies

Michael Parr's fans send him rude selfies on Twitter.

The 'Emmerdale' actor - who plays bad boy Ross Barton in the ITV soap - likes to interact with his fans on social media but has confessed it can sometimes get out of hand.

Asked if he's had any indecent proposals, Michael exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Oh yeah, all the time. People tweet me rudey pudey selfies of them in a bra pulling it down like, 'Do you want to come over?' And I tweet them back saying, 'How close are you?' Nah, I'm joking. I'm joking!

"But yeah, I get a lot of stuff like that but you've just got to ignore it. I'd be such a sleazy guy if I did that."

The 29-year-old star also claimed that while he's flattered to have been named Sexiest Male at the Inside Soap Awards, he won't be using his new accolade as a chat up line.

Asked how he feels about his new title, Michael said: "It makes me feel sick and really smug at the same time. I don't wake up in the morning and say, 'I want to be sexiest male!' but I'm really grateful to everyone who voted. [Would I use it to chat girls up?] No, who would do that? I just have my charm to do that. Can you imagine if I came up to you and just said, 'Hi I'm sexiest male?' "

Michael is currently on holiday in California and has admitted he is interested in working across the pond but isn't ready to move on just yet.

He added: "I'm flying to San Fran and I have spoken to my agent. I've got dual citizenship because my family are from America so I'm not saying I'm going over to the States, I'm just going to see if I like it but I'm definitely coming back."
