Speaking of in front of him Strict Appearance, Mellor said: “I’ve been asked to do things over the years and I never wanted to do them, I’ve always been a little wary of doing things that might negatively impact my career.

“My mindset changed a few years ago after losing my father. As I went through the grief, I just realized that you have to take hold of life and start saying “yes” to things…

“I want to do something that is challenging. It’s scary and outside of my comfort zone, but those are the things to remember and that’s why I went for it. Also, it’s my mom’s favorite show and she’s been through a really tough few years, so it’ll give her something to look forward to and smile about.”
