Coronation Street, Hollyoaks, Emmerdale
Our first look at soapy news is over at Corrie, where former Street star Suranne Jones has been telling Holy Soap that she thinks Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) will probably never find happiness with the women in his life!
Suranne of course starred as Karen, who was married to Steve until Suranne left the show in 2004. Suranne is currently starring in new detective drama Scott & Bailey, but she took time out of her schedule to talk about poor old Steve’s doomed love life!
She said, “He always goes for the typically crazy women – but if he settles down with someone like Clare Peacock, say, that wouldn’t last two minutes.
“I don’t think he needs a soft-hearted woman. He’d want a bit of spice in his life.
“I think the whole point of Steve is that he goes after women that are like his mother…
“Liz McDonald wore a few short skirts and had a mouth on her so I think he’s doomed for that kind of woman.
“Maybe he’ll get with one of the younger girls – that’s a bit mad. Young Tina or something like that, who knows?”
Next up is news from Hollyoaks with Rachel Shenton claiming she’s “nothing like” her ‘Oaks character Mitzeee.
She told Inside Soap, “I don’t really wear make-up that often, and don’t tend to do anything with my hair.
“Mitzeee spends hours doing her make-up and I couldn’t think of anything worse.
“At first it was a novelty, but that wears off when you get called in at 6.45 every morning!”
And finally, over to Emmerdale where former star Lyndon Ogbourne has hinted that he could be returning to the show to reprise his role as Nathan Wylde.
We last saw Lyndon as Nathan late last year when he was run out of the village after everyone shunned him for trying to frame his half-brother Ryan Lamb for the murder of their father Mark.
However, on Twitter, Lyndon recently wrote… “I’m over the moon!!! Thanks for all your messages wishing me back in Emmerdale nice to know I’m missed…
“I had a lovely chat with the ED exec producer today…..things could be brewing….but for now and pre US projects I’m off on tour!! Whoop! (sic)”
He later tweeted, “Thankyou for all your congratulatory messages!
“What an exciting day it’s been, glad I could share my happy news with you!”
