‘Jim still has feel­ings for Liz’

But he’s got a funny way of show­ing it...

Heat (UK) - - The Un missables -

Some peo­ple have a weird way of show­ing their love. While some ro­man­tic folk go down the tra­di­tional route of buy­ing flow­ers, oth­ers like Jim pre­fer to be mav­er­ick – and fleece their loved ones in­stead. Jimbo and his new squeeze Han­nah have gone all out to con­vince poor Liz that Han­nah is the daugh­ter she thought had died at birth. And next week, Han­nah ‘col­lapses’ and Liz in­sists she moves in, so she can look af­ter her. But is Jim hav­ing a change of heart about dup­ing his ex? Char­lie Law­son re­veals all...

How does it feel to re­turn to the cob­bles?

It’s my 40th year in the busi­ness this year, so it’s a bit like rid­ing a bike. It’s a job I’m proud of and a job I en­joy. Plus, I get to share a dress­ing room with Si­mon Greg­son, so that’s good!

Why did Jim orig­i­nally agree to the plan to scam Liz?

I don’t think he is the in­sti­ga­tor of the idea and now he’s in it up to his neck. As soon as he sees El­iz­a­beth, he re­alises he’s made a mis­take and he wants her back, but he is in too deep. Jim makes mis­takes like every­one does, he’s not a bad man.

How se­ri­ous are his feel­ings for Han­nah?

He doesn’t want what Han­nah wants. He was in prison and he felt aban­doned, and there she turns up and takes care of him, but it be­comes

ap­par­ent pretty quick that she is the driver of this plan. She’s traced him through his army records and ob­vi­ously she’s had a plan go­ing on in her head.

does he think they’ve gone too far?

Yes, and he makes it very clear he feels guilty. But the dam­age is done.

has he still got feel­ings for liz?

Any­one in the real world knows that when you love some­one – and it’s gen­uine – you tend not to fall out of love, no mat­ter what hap­pens. So, yes, he does and long may that con­tinue.

how do you think liz would re­act if she found out the truth?

She would be bro­ken-hearted and very dis­ap­pointed in him, be­cause it’s pretty clear she still has feel­ings for him, too.

do you think liz and Jim should get back to­gether?

It never went away for him and nei­ther has it for Liz, but it would be a pretty bor­ing story if they just kissed and made up. But I hope, in the fu­ture, it could be Jim, Liz and Steve to­gether. That would be in an ideal world.

“I really don’t want to do this...”

“Yep, this is a bad idea”
