'Baddest' soap star Darren Day
New 'Hollyoaks' actor Darren Day admits he thinks his character is the ''baddest'' boy in the show
Darren Day wants to be the "baddest" bad boy in 'Hollyoaks'.
The actor - who recently joined the Channel 4 soap as Danny Houston - admits he doesn't mind being such a nasty character, because he is the "best man" he has ever been in real life.
He said: "I'll be as bad as I can on screen in 'Hollyoaks - I've been told that Danny has to be the baddest of the bad. But off screen, I'll be as good as I possibly can."
Darren was known for his womanising ways and turbulent personal life - which included problems with drink and drugs and numerous relationships - until he met his wife Stephanie Dooley, who he has daughter Madison, four, with.
He understands it will take a long time for the public's perception of him to improve, but is hopeful this will improve over time.
He added: "Probably the most I can hope for for a few years is 'reformed love rat'. I'll lose that tag one day because I'm at a point now where I want to be the best man I can possibly be."
