Warwick Davis sparked concern earlier this year after he took a break from episodes of Tenable. The Star Wars actor was replaced by Sally Lindsay briefly on the series as he was busy with another project. Opening up about his replacement, Warwick told Express.co.uk, it was “flattering” how much fans missed him.

When Warwick wasn’t on the gameshow earlier this year, many stars took to social media to wonder what happened to him.

The star was forced to address his absence on his own Twitter at the time, after sparking concern from viewers.

Opening up about what happened, Warwick said: “It’s very flattering!

“People love Tenable, the very nature of it.

“And it’s lovely to know people miss me presenting the show.”

Having been involved in the show since it was first being developed, the actor admitted he has a huge affection for the series.

He added: “It’s interesting when you’re in the development of a show, from the very beginning like I was with Tenable, you put your stamp on it.

“I wanted it to be my show. It isn’t a straight-laced quiz show in the afternoon like the ones that already exist.

“I want this to be fun and entertaining. I will make fun of the contestants if they give me a stupid answer.

“There’s a lot of me in the show, I put my personality into the show and it’s lovely to know that’s what people miss.”

However, Warwick was also quick to sing the praises of his replacement Sally on the show as well.

“Sally stepped in and helped out now because I’m working on another project I can’t talk about at the moment,” he added.

“Sally helped out and stepped in recording half the series.

“It’s great because people love Tenable, the very nature of it and it was lovely to know they miss me presenting the show.

“I think Sally did a terrific job, although her puns aren’t quite as bad as mine.”

Warwick has been busy filming his new Disney+ series based on the hugely popular film Willow.

There’s a lot of secrecy around the show but fans are excited to him reprise the title role.

As well as this, the star has voiced a new children’s show called Moley.

This features him in the title role alongside stars like Charles Dance and Julie Walters.

Moley airs daily on Boomerang UK at 5.30pm.
