Hollyoaks Actor Talks About Warren Fox

Hello and welcome to A Boxing Day Slice Of Soap. How was your Christmas? I’m sure it was better than what the two biggest soaps served up as storylines.

Let’s start with Sean ‘Shout!’ Slater not being the daddy in EastEnders. Not as compelling as everyone finding out about Max and Stacey’s affair, was it? I was on the edge of my seat last year, not so this year. However, Suzy’s stinging insult about Ben Mitchell being conceived with "weak sperm" is officially the funniest thing I’ve heard in a soap this year. Sorry, Blanche Hunt – you almost made it but you were trumped at the very last minute. Talking of Corrie, I can’t decide if the Tony ‘JR’ Gordon/Jed storyline is too ridiculous for words or just plain stupid. "Jed’s not dead, baby. Jed’s not dead." I could hear all the Pulp Fiction fans groaning in unison at that one….

Moving on to Hollyoaks and actor Jamie Lomas has claimed he is like his character, bad guy Warren Fox. The soap star – who is dating Coronation Street actress Kym Marsh – reassured fans he is not a murderer, but he relates to Warren.

Jamie explained: "Obviously I don’t go around killing people, but when acting I think you have to have some sort of similarities to draw from for the character. You have to draw something from somewhere – some life experiences. Like I said, I’ve never killed anyone but you’ve got to have some elements of the character, otherwise it wouldn’t be believable!" He added: "For some people, trouble just follows them around and no matter how much they try to stay away from it they’re like a magnet for it. They try and be good and they just can’t – that’s just the way they’re built. Unfortunately, Warren’s just one of those people. I think in Warren’s head he doesn’t think he’s a bad person; he honestly believes he’s a good person. He’s got morals, but they’re his own. If you’re loyal to Warren he’ll be loyal to you."

Incidentally, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks cast members will take part in a special episode of Family Fortunes. The edition, which airs on ITV1 tomorrow, sees members of the McQueen clan from Hollyoaks take on Emmerdale’s Dingles. Vernon Kay hosts as Hollyoaks matriarch Nicole Barber-Lane (Myra McQueen) leads out Gemma Merna, Jennifer Metcalfe and Claire Cooper, who play her feisty daughters Carmel, Mercedes and Jacqui. They’ll be joined by Nick Pickard (Jacqui’s ex Tony Hutchinson) – the show’s longest-serving cast member. Meanwhile, representing the Dingles will be Jane Cox (Lisa Dingle), who teams up with her screen relatives. She will be joined by Andy Devine (brother-in-law Shadrach), Eden Taylor-Draper (daughter Belle), Mark Charnock (nephew Marlon) and Lucy Pargeter (niece Chastity). Both sides will be aiming to get their hands on up to £30,000 for the charity of their choice.

That’s it for me, I’m out of here. Join me on Monday for a full preview of your favourite soaps. Got a comment about your favourite soap, this blog or anything else? Share it with me.

    I soo think that coranation street should be best soap BY FAR! it has all the best things that a soap should have and keeps you on your toes with excitement of what will happen next and it really makes the other soaps seem worthless to watch!
