Ben Bailey Smith: 'Bradley Walsh's pranking is non stop on Law & Order' (VIDEO)

New Law & Order UK star Ben Bailey Smith says Bradley Walsh will go to any lengths to prank his co-stars, including jumping out of cupboards and dressing up.

Ben plays DS Joe Hawkins, the new partner for DS Ronnie Brooks (Bradley) and he describes his co-star as a 'big, bouncing ball of energy'.

"It's like 'Dude, where did you find the time to do this!'" says Ben.

Law & Order UK continues on ITV on Wednesday night.
