Kieron Richardson is worried he's just about to be sacked from 'Hollyoaks' after he accidentally hinted that his character Ste Hay may have killed Amy Barnes
Hollyoaks' Kieron Richardson thinks he's just "lost his job" after he accidentally hinted that his alter ego may be behind Amy Barnes' shocking murder.
The 31-year-old actor - who is known for portraying recovering drug addict Ste Hay in the long-running soap - got himself into a flap during an appearance on 'This Morning' on Wednesday (29.03.17) when he almost let slip which character left the blonde beauty (Ashley Slanina-Davies) for dead and covered in blood this week.
Speaking on the show, he said: "The performances are absolutely brilliant. Ashley who plays Amy Barnes is an absolutely fantastic actress. Even in my final scenes when I... no. Is this live? Have you got any jobs here? I might need one."
Holly Willoughby then attempted to change the subject to stop Kieron getting himself into any more trouble with Channel 4 bosses by asking him about the impending birth of his twins, which were conceived via surrogate, with his husband Carl Hyland.
He explained: "I'm having two babies via a surrogate... We argue all the time over the names but we're not going to tell anyone ... I can't really concentrate right now because I feel like I've just lost my job. There's loads of suspects. I hate this job."
However, Kieron has teased that people are automatically thinking that his alter ego battered Amy because he's taking some time out of the soap to be a father and that's not necessarily the case because the storyline was written long before that.
He said: "I think because people know that I'm having babies that they're like: 'Well it's not going to be him because he's just having maternity leave. They're gonna say it's you and then you're gonna come back for a bit.' But that's not the case, the story has been planned since. before we got pregnant. People have their own theories."
