We’ll start our look at soapy news with Emmerdale, where Charley Webb has been telling Soaplife that a baby is just about the last thing her character Debbie Dingle wants right now.
Debbie is of course living with boyfriend Cameron, but now she’s worried that she can’t trust him.
Charley said, “She’s having doubts again, especially when she sees him flirting with Eve.
“She’s back to not knowing if she can trust him.”
And when asked who Debbie tells first that she’s pregnant, Charley said, “Chas and her mum Charity. They’re both totally shocked because Debbie’s not excited about it.
“Instead she’s going, ‘I’m pregnant, it wasn’t supposed to happen, what am I going to do?’”
Charley then discussed Cameron’s reaction when Debbie tells him the news.
She said, “He doesn’t say much at first which makes her think that definitely things aren’t right.
“He’s actually in shock, but Debbie has no patience with him and storms off.”
And finally, when asked if Debbie and Cameron can make it as a couple, Charley said, “I hope so. I think they make a really good couple.
“He’s left his family behind which is a massive, massive thing to do. Cameron’s been very upset about that – it wasn’t an easy thing to do.
“Debbie’s been upset about it, too. It’s always going to be there in Debbie’s head – that he abandoned his kids and his wife – and Debbie feels terrible about that.”
Over to Hollyoaks now, and Emmett Scanlan has confirmed that he and his co-star Claire Cooper are dating.
Emmett, who of course plays Brendan Brady, has been unofficially dating Claire – who plays Jacqui McQueen – since late last year, but the couple kept their relationship under wraps until recently.
Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Emmett said that he was initially attracted to Claire’s professionalism.
He said, “Claire is great. She’s been in Hollyoaks for more than four years and she’s one of the strongest actresses.
“We share a similar love for acting. It’s great to have that common ground. I call her Jaffa because I joke she looks like a Jaffa Cake.
“I thought she was a top actress and that’s what massively attracted me to her as a person.”
And finally over to Corrie, and former Street star John Savident – who played Fred Elliott – says he doesn’t watch the show anymore.
In an interview with the Manchester Evening News, John also criticised some of the younger cast members saying, “Honestly I rarely watch Corrie now. Some of the young people just want to be on screen and have no ambition to act elsewhere…
“What future do they have when their contract ends?
“One of them asked me who this Laurence Olivier was I was talking about as he’d never heard of him!
“Olivier was my hero and I had the honour of working with him on a couple of occasions.”
John added that he has few regrets about leaving the show, but added the he misses some of his co-stars.
He said, “Apart from missing all my friends in the Street, particularly the lovely Sue Nicholls who is such a lady, Bill Roache and the wonderful Betty Driver.
“Now most of my other friends have also left like Steven Arnold (Ashley) and Julia Haworth (Claire) who were the loveliest family. At least they were given plenty of notice.”
