Hollyoaks star Danny Mac says his bizarre, tangled relationships are quite easy to play because he’s as confused about who he’s seeing as his character Dodger!

Danny plays Mark ‘Dodger’ Savage in the Channel 4 soap, who’s in love with his father’s wife, Maxine (Nikki Sanderson), while also involved in a relationship with Theresa McQueen and about to find out he’s the father of Nico, who just happens to be the daughter of his sister Sienna Blake!

Danny told What’s on TV: “There are episodes I literally flick through, we’re filming out of sequence and… there’s a block of five eps, he sees all three girls about four times in each episode!

“‘Which one is that and where’s he just come from?’ It’s literally spinning me out. It’s making it quite easy to play, the confusion is with me as much as it is with Dodger!”

Danny said he’s equally repelled and fascinated by the Nico storyline. “Everyone’s waiting for the day that Dodger finds out he is the father of Nico and it’s not to far away, that’s for sure. Urgh!” he said.

“It’s horrible and crazy and bizarre, but I’ve sort of grown really fond of it. But it’s a great storyline to get given, it’s a big challenge… to make it real and to justify it. It’s been crazy, it’s really weird, but it is Hollyoaks!”
