Phobias? “Bugs, spiders and cockroaches crawling all over my head”

Is Jamie Lomas single? Yes, Jamie is single although he used to be married to Coronation Street star Kym Marsh.

He says: “I am nervous, apprehensive and it’s a mix of emotions. You can’t prepare yourself for this because you don’t know what to expect. Now it is getting closer, I am getting more nervous. It feels alien to me. I am quite a private person and for me to put myself out there is new. I can’t hide behind the cameras nor can I hide behind my character.”

Biography: Manchester lad Jamie has had quite the soap career since he started on Brookside in 2002, also having starred in Coronation Street, EastEnders – as Jake Stone –and now as everyone’s favourite Hollyoaks bad boy, Warren Fox.

Over the course of 11 years (with a five-year break), Warren caused a lot of strife and misery around the village with his thuggish behaviour and rotten-to-the-core persona, and has been responsible for the deaths of no less than five people in his time there.

Here he is fighting his way around town with nemesis Brendan to a jaunty drum ‘n’ bass soundtrack…

Pretty full-on stuff, right?

Jamie’s portrayal of Warren even got him nominated for Villain of the Year at the British Soap Awards three years on the trot, Best Actor two years in a row and of course Sexiest Male in 2008.

Whilst he didn’t quite get his hands on a trophy that time, Jamie’s recently won the Best Actor in a Narrative Short award at the Studio City International Film Festival for his role in The Importance of Being Andy.
