Ricky Whittle is a British actor from Oldham, Greater Manchester. He is best known for his role as Calvin in the Channel Four soap Hollyoaks, he came second to Chris Hollins in Strictly Come Dancing in 2009.

Ricky Whittle has opened up in a new interview with Love It!, admitting that he was bullied quite badly as a child growing up in Northern Ireland. "I must have been one of the first black people in the whole country. I stood out from the other children at school," he remembers. "They had never seen a black kid before and that's when the bullying began. I had a hard time of it." Ricky says he eventually overcame the taunts by becoming the school football star, but admits that the bullying has made him determined to succeed in life. "I have no interest in coming second,"
