The actor has was cleared all charges and has admitted he’s “holding” on for a return to his job playing Daz Spencer in the ITV soap.

Today he revealed that he began shouting in his sleep due to the stress during the trial.

He told Good Morning Britain that night terrors plagued him as his world was “turned upside down”.

He told hosts Richard Madeley and Kate Garraway that his fiancee regularly awoke to find him screaming while asleep.

“There was a lot of times Laura would say I was shouting out in my sleep,” he said. “The stress, accumulating, comes out in ways that you don’t realise.”

But he told the presenters that he became strangely calm while a jury was considering his fate at Manchester Crown Court on August 6.

He was accused of assaulting pensioner Andrew Potts at the Farrars Arms in Oldham after a row was sparked following comments made about the actor’s daughter Poppy.

“That waiting period was spent with colleagues, who kept me busy,” he said.

“As weird as it is there was a calm. I felt quite centred, if that makes sense.”

He said that he was “holding dear” to the idea of returning back to the ITV soap after he was written out during the case, with bosses saying they remained open to him coming back if cleared.

Jordon had been drinking outside the Farrars Arms in Oldham, Greater Manchester, with family and friends when an argument broke out.

He also spoke of how upset he’d been at being accused of something so out-of-character.

“I might be very boring, but I do have a reputation of being a good character and a nice bloke,’ he said. ‘To suddenly be labelled something that’s quite villainous and aggressive – it just turns your life upside down.”
