Sinead eyes up Daniel again
AS SINEAD SEES HER BOYFRIEND IN A NEW LIGHT, KATIE MCGLYNN IS CHANNELLING HER INNER LOIS LANE…
Nobody was more shocked than Sinead herself when she abandoned dependable Chesney for a fling with brainbox Daniel. Her crazy gamble proved disastrous once she got entangled with the barmy Barlows – so it’s no wonder she’s retreated into the arms of reliable old Ches again.
But is Sinead’s heart really in it? It doesn’t look like it at the beginning of the week, as she meets Daniel for a drink in the Bistro. However, she swiftly abandons him after finding out Chesney has been rushed to hospital – and there are more shocks in store when an unexpected development reveals a previously unseen side of Chesney. So might Ches turn out to be her hero after all? Katie Mcglynn, who plays Sinead, reckons the jury is still out…
Do you think Sinead was right to get back together with Chesney so soon after dumping Daniel?
She needed to get everything out of her system before getting back with Chesney. Daniel turned out to be a psycho, and it was like going home when she chose Ches. But there’s always going to be a spark between her and Daniel because of how abruptly they split up. Their relationship was very different from the one she has with Chesney, who’s the safer option!
So is Sinead thinking with her head rather than her heart?
I think she is. Chesney’s the sort of guy you settle down and have kids with – I’m assuming he was her first love, but they’re like an old married couple. Sinead’s a bit of a kookier character than that – she’s very peculiar! And that’s why it worked with Daniel, because he’s a bit weird as well.
When Sinead meets up with Daniel, it seems she’s still torn between her two blokes. But after Chesney is taken to hospital, everything changes when a call comes in regarding his former girlfriend Katy, who moved to Portugal with their son Joseph two years ago. And soon Ches knocks Sinead for six with his actions…
What is it that prompts Sinead to have such a drastic change of heart about Ches?
She’s just in awe of him, and of how determined he is to get to Joseph. He’s got fire in his belly and is being so courageous, even though he’s not at all well. He wants to be there for his son like a proper man. He’s taking charge of his life, and he’s actually quite heroic. It’s like he’s Superman, and Sinead is Lois Lane!
How much do you enjoy working with Sam Aston, who plays Ches – and have you missed working so closely with Rob Mallard (Daniel)?
It’s great working with both of them. Me and Sam just laugh all the time, we’re like brother and sister – it’s dead funny. We’re just really comfortable with each other. With Rob it’s very similar, to be fair, but because he’s quirky, I love watching him and all the little things he does when we’re filming.

Who do you personally think that Sinead should be with?
I would probably say Daniel. It’s more of a dangerous relationship, but it’s also more exciting – she’ll always hold a candle for him. Daniel is more of a gamble than Chesney, but I think at Sinead’s age, that’s what she’d go for.
If Daniel found himself a new lady, do you think Sinead would mind?
I think she’d think it was good, actually. If he’s on his own, then she’ll always be wondering, ‘What if?’. But if he’s with someone else, she’ll know she can’t go there again and that she’s made the right decision to be with Chesney…
