New­comer Da­mon makes a bid for El­lie’s heart! Will he per­suade her to take a chance on him? Ja­cob Roberts re­veals all…

Soaplife - - Content -

El­lie Nightin­gale has been strug­gling with ev­ery­day life since Nick Sav­age raped her a year ago. But hunky Da­mon Kin­sella thinks he’s the man to make her smile again. He’s dead keen to make a move, but Holly Cun­ning­ham, who was also at­tacked by Nick, thinks it’s too soon. ‘Holly isn’t ready to move on,’ ac­tor Ja­cob Roberts tells Soaplife. ‘But El­lie is and Da­mon just wants to make her laugh and help her start en­joy­ing life again.’ But is El­lie ac­tu­ally ready for dat­ing and hav­ing a new boyfriend?

What does Da­mon like about El­lie?

She’s the one per­son in Hol­lyoaks who’s paid him a lot of at­ten­tion and laughed at all his jokes. Holly’s sim­ply taken no in­ter­est in Da­mon at all and he thinks she can see right through him.

Would he be good for El­lie?

I think so. He’s a nice lad and he just wants to make her laugh.

What hap­pens when Holly and El­lie ar­range to have a spa night?

They’re hav­ing a spa night be­cause it’s a year since Nick raped El­lie and they want to for­get about it. Da­mon doesn’t know this and he winds them up, say­ing that spa nights are for 50-year-olds. He per­suades them to come to The Dog.

What hap­pens at The Dog?

He sees a flyer for a party at The Loft and they all get drunk and go. But it’s a traf­fic light party – ex­actly like the one when Nick raped El­lie. Holly doesn’t think it’s a great idea, but Da­mon doesn’t take much no­tice.

Do El­lie and Da­mon get to­gether?

Well, the re­la­tion­ship doesn’t go quite ac­cord­ing to plan straight away. Da­mon falls in love eas­ily and, if he gets any hint a girl doesn’t feel the same way, he’s off.

Is he sen­si­tive enough for El­lie?

He is, but he prob­a­bly isn’t as sen­si­tive as he’d nor­mally be be­cause he’s hav­ing trou­bles of his own. It’s partly why he wants to go out and have a good time.

Can you give us a hint about what will hap­pen be­tween them?

Da­mon isn’t the smoothest guy, so there’ll be a few awk­ward mo­ments.

Are you en­joy­ing Hol­lyoaks?

I am. It’s my first TV show and ev­ery­one’s been so wel­com­ing. I get on so well with So­phie Por­ley, who plays El­lie. So it won’t be em­bar­rass­ing if I have to kiss her!

What else is com­ing up for Da­mon?

I have a lot of fun stuff, but there’s also a lot of emo­tional stuff com­ing up.
