Hollyoaks' Jacob Roberts reveals terrifying fan encounter

Share article:

Jacob Roberts was terrified after a fan chased him round the supermarket and asked for his phone number.

The "Hollyoaks" star - who plays Damon Kinsella on the show - has opened up about the bizarre encounter when a "middle-aged man" followed him around Asda asking for an autograph, and later banging on his car window.

He told The Sun Online's Soap Bubble: "I was down an aisle and he kept asking me if I had a pen and paper and I was like, "Sorry I don't carry a pen and paper with me".

"So anyway he goes off and buys his pen and paper and I sign it and we take a photo.

"Then I go and get in my car and the next thing I know as I'm driving off and he's banging on my window. I go to wind it down but just slightly and he's going "Have you got a number?", can I have your number?" "

He added: "He kept asking me for my number and stuff and was inviting me for a pool night. So I just said, "Listen mate, I can't give my number out, I just can't."
