Hollyoaks star Kieron Richardson has spoken out on those Ste and James romance theories.

Ste and James share a complicated history, mainly due to their past rivalry over Harry Thompson, but have recently agreed to bury the hatchet once and for all.

James became a surprise ally for Ste when he returned earlier this month, when he was one of a few residents to truly give him the time of day.

This has prompted fans to speculate that Hollyoaks could be warming up a romance between the former love rivals – and Kieron, who plays Ste, isn't ruling it out, either.

"You'll have to stay tuned", he told Digital Spy. "They've got so much history together and it's not always been rosy.

"They are very different characters but sometimes opposite attract. Never say never. I love working with Greg. He's a great actor, and currently still the reigning Best Actor champion from the last British Soap Awards we had."

Kieron did, however, admit that romance wasn't on the immediate agenda for Ste as he settles back into the village, suggesting that any upcoming relationship could still be a long way off.

"I hope there is some romance at some point," he said. "Romance stories are so fun to do as so much happens in relationships.

"At the moment, we are definitely going to see Ste dipping his toe into other people's stories which I relish because it's great to get a chance to work with other actors.

"I am also still waiting for the day that Ste and Mercedes have more scenes together. I keep saying it, so hopefully one day it will happen."

Hollyoaks currently airs new episodes from Mondays to Thursdays at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first-look screenings at 7pm on E4. Classic episodes, titled Hollyoaks Favourites, air on Fridays at 7pm on E4.
