UK Soaps News: Fred Elliott’s sausages; Emmerdale’s at sea, and Hollyoaks Darren tempted by Cindy?

Deceased Corrie butcher Fred Elliott (John Savident) has become the first Weatherfield butcher to achieve fame via sausages after death…

The Mirror today reveals that as part of a group of products being made ready for sale under a Coronation Street brand, Fred’s picture, and his famous saying, “By ’eck that’s cheap” will appear on meat products.

The brand will be labeled, ‘Elliott’s Prime Cuts’.

Over to Emmerdale now, and the PA reports that Marc Silcock, Danny Miller and Pauline Quirke have just spent four days shooting scenes on location in the North Sea.

The actors, who play Jackson Walsh, his boyfriend Aaron Livesy and his mum Hazel Rhodes respectively, were spotted filming on a boat in Whitby.

However, it seems Danny Miller’s not much of a sailor as his co-star James Thornton – who plays farmer John Barton – tweeted, “Danny Miller is seasick. Very funny. Head up lad.”

As to what the cast were doing filming at sea, it has been speculated that the storyline could be part of the assisted suicide plot which will see Aaron and Hazel help Jackson end his life…

However, a show spokesperson said, “They are not filming exit scenes for Jackson.”

Finally, over in Hollyoaks, Darren’s (Ashley Taylor-Dawson) about to put into action a plan to get back with Nancy (Stephanie Fox).

However, as Darren is to become a chauffeur for Cindy, who’s played by Stephanie Waring, he might be tempted by her female charms.

Speaking to Soaplife, Ashley said, “He’s totally in love with Nancy but I can see him being tempted by Cindy.

“You have to remember that she is a millionairess, [but] Darren tells Nancy that if she takes him back, he will give up his job with Cindy.

“Nancy has really calmed Darren down. For the first time in his life, he is with someone who has a heart of gold.

“They have been through a lot together and they’re really close.

“There’s a lot of deep emotion there and I think Darren has grown up a bit and can see that he’s got something special with Nancy.”
