Hollyoaks star Anthony Quinlan has claimed that his character Gilly Roach is moving on from late wife Steph too quickly.

Next week's episodes of the Channel 4 soap see Gilly grow closer to Lynsey Nolan (Karen Hassan) as they have a steamy encounter in the hot tub at Look Sharpe.

In an interview with Inside Soap, Quinlan explained: "Gilly has a new job at Look Sharpe as a personal trainer and invites Lynsey for a free session.

"Lynsey's looking pretty good when she turns up, so Gilly gets a bit sweaty and hot under the collar - and she ends up hopping into the tub and dragging Gilly in there fully clothed!"

The pair soon arrange to go on a date together, prompting Gilly to reach a significant moment as he removes his wedding ring.

Discussing Gilly's decision, Quinlan said: "I thought it was a bit harsh. It feels like it's a little too soon, doesn't it? We'll just have to wait and see what the future holds for Gilly and Lynsey - but there's no comparison to Steph."

Steph lost her life in the Il Gnosh blaze late last year.
