"When I was filming Guardians of the Galaxy in the UK, we watched a lot of garbage TV and my wife went crazy for Towie," he told Graham.

"She fell in love with the show and I started picking up the accent, so now the only British one I can do is an Essex one."

The actor also revealed that he ended up with an official warning from NBC after dropping trou during a scene on the hit US sitcom Parks And Recreation.

We were shooting a scene where my character turns up naked at my co-star's door.
