'Hollyoaks' star Jesse Birdsall wants Sandy Roscoe (Gillian Taylforth) to murder his character Fraser Black
'Hollyoaks' star Jesse Birdsall is backing Sandy Roscoe as Fraser Black's killer.
The actor's villainous alter-ego will be killed off in a major new 'whodunit?' storyline and he thinks Fraser's on-screen wife, played by Gillian Taylforth, should be the one to murder him.
Sandy and Fraser hit the rocks in the Channel 4 soap this week as her sons Joe and Freddie exposed some of the gangster's crimes.
Jesse told All About Soap magazine: "Personally I've always thought it should be Sandy, but that doesn't mean that's who the killer is.
"I love Gilly (Sandy) so much and we have a great working relationship. I've known her since I was about 12, so it has been a long time. When I left, there were a few tears.
"I suppose he's a pretty bad guy, and he did some pretty bad things, so I think it's probably right that he got his comeuppance in the end."
Jesse admits it hasn't hit him that he's left the show after wrapping filming on the Liverpool set recently.
He added: "I've really enjoyed it. I have to say, I have been there ten months and it feels like it has only been about two weeks.
"I've just packed up and left Liverpool and it seems as if I'm just off on a break at the minute - I don't feel like I've finished yet."
Meanwhile, Gillian is to leave 'Hollyoaks' as well later this year, but producers are leaving the door open for her to return.
