How does she react when Lloyd asks her to move in with him?
She’s cagey. She obviously wants to move in with him - it would be the best thing in the world, but she can’t. How could she? She has a marital home and how would she explain it to her husband if she moved out. At some stage, Andrea is going to have to tell Neil and she knows that but it’s too hard for her to do. Andrea kind of says that yes, she will move in with him, but she just doesn’t know when that will be.
So what are her intentions when Neil returns?
Her intentions are to tell her husband that it’s over. She just needs to find the right time and courage and she knows it’ll take her a while to find the strength to do it. She doesn’t want to hurt him. Andrea hopes that once she tells her husband it’s over, she can carry on her life with Lloyd. But it depends whether she can keep it from Lloyd once Neil gets back…
Is there any part of Andrea that has enjoyed the excitement of having two men in her life?
No. She’s just completely got caught up in a huge mess that she never intended. Andrea did enjoy the flirty fun at the beginning, but it was always in the back of her mind that what she was doing was going to catch up with her and she couldn’t ignore it forever. There’s no way out for her - she’s fallen in love with Lloyd and she can’t escape that.
How does she feel about Lloyd?
She really does love him. There will always be a chemistry between her and Steve as they have a great friendship, but she is massively in love with Lloyd and they are getting on so well at the minute.
How would Neil react if he found out about Lloyd?
Neil is a huge softie and I think he would take Andrea back in a heart beat, no matter what she did to him. He’s a teddy bear and would never hurt her. He’s the kind of guy that would say to Andrea that he didn’t care what she’d done, as long as she didn’t leave him. Andrea would be his main priority.
And how do you think Lloyd will react when he finds out?
I hope he will be able to forgive her, but I’ve just filmed some really heartbreaking scenes between them. Who knows what will happen and whether he can forgive her?
