Hollyoaks star Ashley Taylor Dawson has revealed that Darren and Nancy Osborne’s marriage could soon be on the rocks. Speaking to RadioTimes.com at the TV Choice awards, Dawson said he thought that Darren could “go on the rampage” in the near future should Nancy’s (Jessica Fox) recent one-night stand with Rick Spencer come to light.
“Nancy and Darren have been together for so long. They’ve been such a tight couple and been through all sorts. But what’s happened is obviously absolutely awful and I think Darren is going to go on the rampage a little bit. He needs to man up at last, but he’ll go about it totally the wrong way,” he said.
Asked whether the couple could survive the infidelity, Dawson admitted that he had doubts. “You’d always expect Nancy and Darren to get through it. But so much has happened and do you ever get that respect back?”
And while the actor said that he hoped that the Osbornes could make it through, he also commented that a split would allow for Darren to interact with fresh characters. “I love working with Jess and she’s a fantastic actress. We have a way of working that’s very quick.
“We don’t mess around and we can talk to each other quite openly about how we want to do things. When you’ve worked together for so long it does make it easier, but at the same time it’s nice to work with different people and also go on a different journey with your character. So I’m open to anything.”
