UK Soaps News: Emmerdale, Hollyoaks & Coronation Street

It’s being reported today that a contestant on dating show Take Me Out has landed a part in Emmerdale.

The Sun reports that David Jeffrey was contacted by the show’s bosses after they saw him on the show last week.

A source close to David said, “David’s really excited. He has always wanted to get into TV so this is a dream come true for him.

“He went on Take Me Out hoping for a girlfriend – and got a dream job at the same time.”

The paper adds that David will start filming soon and appear on-screen around March.

In Hollyoaks news, Saira Choudhry has revealed that she thinks it was the right time for her character, Anita Roy, to leave the show.

During an interview for the show’s official website, Saira said, “I think there were more ways for the character to be developed, but she left at the right time.

“I think she corrected all the stuff that she needed to and I’m glad that she left on a positive note.

“She’s quite a disturbing character, isn’t she?! She’s grown up a lot this year though.

“She’s not so self-absorbed and she’s been using her experience to help Jasmine/Jason.

“She’s turned into a young adult now.”

And finally, over in Corrie, Michelle Keegan’s boyfriend, Max George – band member of The Wanted – has joked that he’ll be glad when Craig Gazey leaves the show.

Michelle plays Tina McIntryre, and Craig plays her boyfriend Graeme, and it seems Max isn’t too fond of seeing them kiss on-screen.

Max said of Craig’s imminent departure, “Oh yeah I’m delighted, I feel much better about that.”
