Hollyoaks' Jess Fox: Nancy and Darren split was almost like real divorce

Share article:

Jess Fox says not working with Ashley Taylor Dawson every day "almost feels like a real divorce".

The "Hollyoaks" actress - who plays Nancy Osborne - finds it "weird" without her fellow Channel 4 soap star Ashley (Darren Osborne), and she enjoys their scenes together when they have to play the "bickering" former couple, who split after Darren's affair with Mandy Morgan (Sarah Jayne Dunn).

When asked if she misses Ashley being her on-screen husband, Jess said: "No, as I love it when Nancy and Darren bicker.

"It's like sparring with Ashley so I'd be sad if that stopped. Although it is weird if we don't work together every day - almost like a real divorce."

But one person who Jess has been working with a lot more is Anna Passey after her alter-ego Sienna Blake confides in Nancy about the sexual harassment she's received at the hands of Laurie Shelby (Kyle Pryor) - and Jess has loved teaming up with the 34-year-old star.

She added to Inside Soap magazine: "We had a ball when we did the Nancy, Darren, Sienna love triangle all those years ago.

"Anna and I are incredibly close outside of work, and we always have a good time."

Jess also has a good time when she is chowing down on cheese, recently admitting she would choose the dairy product if she was only allowed to consume one type of food for the rest of her life.

She said: "If I could only eat one type of food for the rest of my life, it would have to be cheese.

"Because you can have a great variety of cheese, and I don't think there's anything in life that can't be improved with cheese."
