Ahh, what would Christmas be without a surprise soap wedding? Well, that is exactly what Hollyoaks has wrapped up and put under the tree for us this year.
However, just whose wedding we have been invited to remains somewhat of a mystery, as show bosses have revealed no more information than to say that it will involve the Roscoe’s – but which one?
Whichever one it turns out to be, and from the list of suspects we have narrowed the options down to Joe (Aydan Callaghan) and Lindsey (Sophie Austin), Freddie (Charlie Clapham) and Sinead (Stephanie Davis) or Sandy (Gillian Taylforth) and Fraser (Jesse Birdsall), the big day will have many consequences, for many people, according to Charlie Clapham, who plays Freddie.
The actor, whose character has been secretly in love with his brother’s fiancée for years – a secret which threatens to be exposed by Sinead in the lead up to the wedding, has been explaining the impact the big day will have to Digital Spy:
“I think this wedding will have a lot of consequences, as weddings often do for families. Will certain families want to be together, will they see it as a good move? Does everyone know who they’re joining onto? These are all things that are very interesting to play.”
“In this story, so many characters have suspicions about each other and there are so many subplots that go underneath. That’s really nice, because you can have a scene just around the breakfast table with so many hidden agendas on the go, simmering under the surface. That’s when you know you’ve got some good stuff to work with, and in those scenes it’s not just about the person who has the dialogue.
“For me, it’s also so important to keep up with the work in general, because you don’t have the privilege of shooting in sequence on a soap. Once every week or two weeks, I always look through to see where we’re at, what Freddie is thinking and work everything out prior to filming. It’s always a lot of fun.”
