Adam Woodward says there is "more passion" to come between Hollyoaks" Sienna Blake and his character Brody Hudson.
The "Oaks" star's alter-ego has been "struggling" in recent weeks after revealing all about the abuse he suffered in the past, but he looks set to turn to Sienna (Anna Passey), despite her initial reluctance to get together with him after he dated her sister Liberty Savage (Jessamy Stoddart).
Adam said: "Sienna has told Brody to stay away romantically, but he's definitely a little smitten with her. We'll see if he can develop things this week.
"Brody finds it difficult to open up to anyone, but Sienna having been through trauma herself, makes her an easier person to talk to. So, more passion between the two is yet to come."
Love will also be in the air for Jacob Roberts" character Damon Kinsella, when he starts dating a mystery "brunette" beauty in the coming weeks.
Jacob explained: "Damon will have a new love interest in the upcoming weeks, all I can reveal is that she's a brunette.
"There will be a serious storyline involving the pair, and I'm excited for the future of their relationship."
It's set to be a difficult week for Damon as his dad Buster Smith (Nathan Sussex) is to plead not guilty to his child abuse sex crimes after he groomed Brody and Ollie Morgan (Aedan Duckworth), but Damon will try to convince his father to admit to what he has done.
Jacob said: "It's Buster's plea hearing this week, and after Damon hears his plans to plead not guilty, he decides to pay him a visit.
"He's finished with him now, and he doesn't even want to call him dad anymore. Buster refuses to admit what he's done, but Damon can see right through him."
