Share article:

Owen Warner nearly burst into tears when Stephanie Davis jokingly told him she hadn't been shortlisted for the British Soap Awards.

The 26-year-old actress is up for Best Actress at the upcoming awards show for her role as Sinead Shelby in the Channel 4 soap, and she couldn't resist making a little joke to her boyfriend and co-star Owen, who plays Romeo Quinn.

She said: "Owen was the first person I told.

"I told him I didn't get shortlisted, and he looked like he was going to cry for me.

"He was so gutted, so I told him I was joking.

After "Hollyoaks" exec producer Bryan Kirkwood had told her about the nomination, Steph headed to the toilet and "screamed the place down" in celebration.

She added: "I couldn't believe it. Bryan Kirkwood called me, and I was in work at the time.

"I went in the toilet and screamed the place down.

"I was made up, I couldn't believe it.

"It took a few days for it to sink in."

While Steph couldn't resist a little quip about her nominations success, she thought it was "a joke" when she was told she had received the nod.

Steph - who returned to "Hollyoaks" in October last year following a stint in rehab to overcome her alcohol issues - recently wrote on Instagram Stories: "THANKYOUUUUUUUU!!!!
