Awkward! Hollyoaks' Jamie Lomas on his sister's 'weird' Emmerdale romance with his best friend

Updated: 

In the showbiz world, there are often many crossovers, and there was one that was slightly weird for Hollyoaks star Jamie Lomas.

The soap hunk appeared on Lorraine to discuss the programme's forthcoming Halloween special when he touched on his sister, Emmerdale actress Charley Webb's, "weird" on-screen romance with his best pal Anthony Quinlan.

When asked by the show's stand-in host Helen Skelton about it, Jamie said: "My sister Charley is in Emmerdale and my other sister Cassie is a make-up artist.

"So it was weird when she went out with my best friend Anthony Quinlan on the show."

Charley plays Debbie Dingle in the ITV soap while Anthony portrays her TV lover Pete Barton - they even had a wedding on the soap, which was no doubt strange for Jamie to watch too.

In real life, Charley is in a relationship with Emmerdale star Matthew Wolfenden, with whom she has two children.

During his stint on the morning programme - alongside his Hollyoaks co-stars Jennifer Metcalfe and Anna Passey - Jamie also admitted that kissing on-screen is really not as romantic as it looks.

The Warren Fox actor said: "It's the least romantic thing having a kissing scene 'cause all of the crew are your friends as well..."
