Jessica Forrest has admitted she wants Justin Timberlake to play her alter-ego Leanne Holiday's on-screen husband
Jessica Forrest wants Justin Timberlake to play her 'Hollyoaks' husband.
The actress - who plays boy-mad Leanne Holiday on the Channel 4 soap - is a big fan of the sexy singer and thinks he would be the perfect man to sweep her character off her feet.
Asked who would be the perfect husband for Leanne, she said: "It would have to be someone hot and really funny - but I think we'd need to bring in a new character. He'd have to be tall, dark and handsome.
"This guy would also be able to speak another language and he would be a good cook, too. I'd like to cast Justin Timberlake..."
The pretty blonde always looks forward to filming with Joe Tracini - who plays loveable Dennis Savage - and they pair get on famously behind the scenes.
Jessica enthused to InsideSoap magazine: "I love Joe! He's such a good laugh. We really get on and I always know that when I get a script with Dennis in it, I'm going to have a good laugh. Joe is like a little clown."
The star joined the cast three years ago and admitted the best thing about being on the soap was her character's tendency to be part of weddings - including Leanne's own plans to walk down the aisle twice - as she has never even been a guest in real life.
Quizzed about the highlight of her time on the show so far, she said: "I'd say all the weddings! Leanne was going to get married to lee, then there was Doug, and she was a bridesmaid.
"I've never been to a wedding in real life, so telly weddings are my only experience. Isn't that odd?"
