Hollyoaks' Denise Welch thanks soap for 'booty call' storyline with younger actor – gushing 'he's very easy on the eye'

HOLLYOAKS star Denise Welch certainly has no complaints about her upcoming "booty call storyline" thanks to her "easy on the eye" co-star.

The 62-year-old actress, who is about to hit our screens as Trish Minniver in the Channel 4 soap in coming weeks, opened up about her new role during a chat on Wednesday's Loose Women.

The topic of dating was brought up in conversation and the panel debated whether or not they would ever get into a relationship with someone that was younger than them.

Denise was able to draw in elements from her on-screen alter-ego Trish's relationship with her hunky boyfriend Brad King, where she admitted that she's happy that the 13 years between them hasn't been made into a problem.

The presenter, who has also starred in other popular soaps such as Coronation Street and Waterloo Road, is happy to show that age is just a number and older women can still be sexy no matter what.

She told her fellow co-stars Ruth Langsford, Linda Robson, Janet Street-Porter: "What's great about Hollyoaks is that although I'm 62 and so is Trish, Tom is 44, and although there is an age gap and that's quite obvious, they're not making a big deal of it.


"It's just about the two of them and what they get up to, the age thing is not really that relevant.

"That's fantastic because we all know that when you watch films and TV shows with women in their 60s, they're kind of being written as a granny, whereas I'm still after a booty call, so there you go!"

Back in October it was revealed that Denise will take on the role of Nikki Sanderson’s on-screen mum, Trish.

And after three months of waiting, her time to shine has finally come.


A recent trailer gave a sneak peek into what viewers can expect over the coming months and the dance teacher will arrive in the village alongside her boyfriend Brad King.

Brad is Maxine's new landlord and she certainly gets the shock of her life when she realises that his girlfriend is mum Trish.

When Denise spoke out about the new role in November last year during a segment on Loose Women, she spoke highly of her co-star Tom Benedict Knight's dishy looks.

She told the girls: "I've never been welcomed so much as I have been by the Hollyoaks gang.

"As well, I have a hunky lover who I can't say who it is yet… I've got someone very, very, very, very easy on the eye."
