Duncan James has admitted he enjoyed every moment of kissing his co-star Jennifer Metcalfe for their steamy 'Hollyoaks' storyline

Duncan James "loved snogging Jennifer Metcalfe" in 'Hollyoaks'.

The Blue singer plays police detective Ryan Knight in the Channel 4 soap and in his current storyline he cheated on his fiancée Amy Barnes (Ashley Slanina-Davies) with Jennifer's alter ego Mercedes McQueen and has been blackmailed by Mercedes' cousin Goldie McQueen (Chelsee Healey) for his indiscretion.

Duncan - who has been nominated for the Best Newcomer prize at the National Television Awards (NTAs) on Wednesday night (25.01.17) - readily admits getting intimate with the beautiful Jennifer, 34, wasn't the hardest scene he's had to shoot on the show.

Discussing his character's antics on 'This Morning', Duncan said: "He is a very naughty man. You would think that he would be bit more clever with it because he is a detective, but no ... I love snogging Jen Metcalfe, that's a lot of fun!"

Duncan, 38, also spilled that his affair will be exposed by Amy who will show a video of Mercedes and Ryan kissing at his own birthday party.

Although he has proven to be a big hit on 'Hollyoaks' he almost had to pull out of portraying Ryan because of his severe back injury which required surgery.

He shared: "I was performing on stage in 'Priscilla Queen of the Desert', and was in the gym every day. My back started to protest but I didn't listen and thought that the show must go on. I started having injections in my back to numb the pain, and then one day I woke up and couldn't move.

"I had to have an emergency surgery to save my back. I was lucky the producers gave me time to recover, I had to walk around with a walking stick for the first few weeks."

And Duncan admitted he hasn't fully recovered from his operation, saying: "From my bottom on my left side hasn't woken up yet fully, I have a lot of numbness."
