With Jackson urging Aaron to get on with his life and not be tied down as his carer in the weeks ahead, is this the end for the popular couple? And what's the story with Aaron's new boyfriend? Danny offers his take in the following Q&A…
Aaron has a new love interest called Flynn coming into the show - will that become quite a serious relationship?
"No, Aaron's only doing this for Jackson. It won't be a long-term relationship - it's just basically Aaron being allowed to free himself of Jackson at Jackson's request."
What do you think of these new developments for Aaron and Jackson?
"I think that whatever's been thrown at us so far has been interesting, so the more the better, really! I'm enjoying it - I'm enjoying filming the rest of what's to come in the storyline. It's definitely been interesting."
From other interviews you've done recently, it sounds like it's going to be another tough year for Aaron and Jackson - will we see any happiness for the pair of them mixed in with that?
"I think that, especially with the new storyline that Aaron's going through - with having to grow up and see Jackson suffer - it'll never be a happy time for Aaron. I'm sure that towards spring and autumn of this year, you'll see some new changes in Aaron's life, and they're quite interesting."
Whether Aaron can say he loves Jackson has become quite a big issue in the storyline - do you think he's got to that point yet?
"I don't think he's got to that point as of yet, no. But I'm sure he will do soon. For now, I think that he hasn't quite worked out whether he loves Jackson or not."
"I think that if they do come through it all and everything's fine, then it wouldn't be very dramatic and they'd have to throw some massive spanners in the works to make the characters still work together. I think I'd like to see a 'break-up, get back together' sort of routine. I know that Aaron may decide that he's in love in the next few months, but he's certainly not a person just to settle down and stick to one person. He does like to mingle and he's quite a sociable person, and although he doesn't show it, he enjoys having a laugh. I think it'd be interesting if they split Aaron and Jackson up and put them back together, but I'm not sure - I don't know what the plans are!"
Do you think Aaron will approach his relationship with Flynn any differently to the way he approached the one with Jackson?
"No, because I think whatever happens in his life, Aaron will always be that same closed-off person. He doesn't really do anything that anyone wants him to do. We'll see - only time will tell and different things will happen over the next year which you'll see on screen, especially towards April. Hopefully we'll keep the interest of the audience and give them some bigger and better stuff this year!"
"No it's not, it's more to do with my personal decision. I mean, this is Aaron's storyline - it has been for the past two years - and it's a point that I've always chosen to do. Regardless of girls or boys, Aaron has never been an intimate person and he's never been a person who would walk up to someone else in The Woolpack and give them a kiss, because he's insecure and he's not a happy bunny, really. I think it's been a personal decision on my part that I've chosen to do that with the character of Aaron, because he's not an intimate, cuddly person - he shuts his emotions off and he doesn't care what people think of him."
Will Aaron have any storylines with Cain this year?
"Well, obviously Aaron's always going to work at the garage and Cain's always going to be his uncle. But yeah, I would definitely say that there's going to be some good stuff coming up between Cain and Aaron towards the middle of the year. It'll be an interesting year for Aaron, but I think there'll always be that thing of Aaron wanting to be like Cain and Cain telling Aaron to shut up and pushing him around!"
Some of Aaron's fans have discussed the possibility of his past being explored more, or bringing back his dad to explore that relationship - do you think that could happen?
"No, I doubt it. Aaron has found that he's grown apart from his dad now and he's accepted that. He's got other people in his life and he doesn't need his dad anymore. His dad and his mum were constantly pushing him from one side of the family to the other, but I think he's learned to live without his dad now and I think that if his dad came in, it would just cause a whole load of new problems which he definitely doesn't need!"
Finally, are there any other Emmerdale highlights that you'd like to mention?
"As I said earlier, I really enjoyed the intense stuff I did with Dominic and I've also really enjoyed working with Pauline Quirke - she's been fantastic to work with."
