Hollyoaks' Warren Fox is set for a feisty new romance.
Jamie Lomas - who has just reprised his role as the bad boy following five years away - has teased his conniving alter-ego has an explosive storyline coming up involving a new lady love.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, Jamie said: "He's in prison at the moment and I'm sure he'll have a lot of catching up to do with the women. He's been away five years. I know he'll have a love interest. I'm not sure who yet. We'll see."
The handsome star shocked fans late last week when his criminal character waltz back into the village of Chester but he has admitted his return was a no-brainer.
He explained: "There was just an opportunity, they contacted me and asked me if I was interested in coming back. I had just done a film in LA and I was setting up an acting school in Manchester, so it just seemed the right thing to do. And I love playing the character, I always did, and to get the opportunity - I just couldn't say no. Everything just fell into place."
Jamie first appeared in the soap in 2006 as the old pal of Sean Kennedy (Matthew Jay Lewis) and quickly became known as the show's main villain.
He then left screens in 2009 after seemingly being killed off by Claire Devine (Gemma Bissix) in a fire at his nightclub, The Loft and but then made a surprise return a year later having survived.
He then made another departure in August 2011 when his character was thrown behind bars for murdering his wife Louise Summers (Roxanne Makee).
