Jay Duffy has revealed his 'Hollyoaks' character Declan Brady will find forging a relationship with his bad boy gangster father Brendan ''awkward''
'Hollyoaks' Declan Brady will struggle to get close to his father in the Channel 4 soap.
Jay Duffy - the 15-year-old son of Boyzone and 'Coronation Street' star Keith Duffy - plays the son of bad boy gangster Brendan (Emmett J. Scanlan) and Eileen Brady (Rachel Doherty) and admitted Declan's relationship with his dad will be "awkward" at first as the pair get to know each other.
He explained to What's On TV: "Declan is just an ordinary lad form Dublin, a school kid, who's coming over to visit his dad for a couple of weeks while his mam goes away, so it's just all about him getting to know his dad.
"He doesn't know his dad very well at all because his mam and dad split up when he was at a very young age, so he has to really find out what his dad is like.
"He is pretty happy to see his dad to be honest, he's always wanted to chill out with him for a while, but it is pretty awkward at the same time because they know nothing about each other."
However, as Declan and Brendan grow closer, Jay is unsure if his dad will fill him in about his illegal activities.
He said: "Will Brendan tell his son all about his stuff and what's going on with him? It's all about that sort of thing."
