Darren has spent the past few weeks planning a secret wedding in a bid to impress Nancy (Jessica Fox), but there are huge obstacles ahead in the coming days as Nancy's mother Margaret (Darryl Fishwick) starts scheming to split them up.
With Darren hoping to tie the knot on Valentine's Day, viewers will be left to wonder whether they stand any chance of making it down the aisle.
Dawson told All About Soap: "Darren's incredibly excited about it, especially after all the hard work and planning that he's been doing in secret for weeks and weeks.
"As far as he's concerned, it's going to be the most perfect day possible and he just can't wait to see the look on Nancy's face when she realises what he's been up to. But things don't go as he planned."
Asked whether he wants the wedding to go ahead, the actor replied: "Yes, after all this it would be lovely to see them get married, but you never know with soaps. I think they can be happy together. They say that opposites attract, and while Darren is a male chauvinist pig, Nancy is a feminist!
"Somehow, they're the perfect match and are incredibly sweet together. Darren brings out Nancy's fun side and she gives his life a bit of order. I think they're destined to be the Jack and Vera of Hollyoaks!"
Hollyoaks airs Darren and Nancy's wedding drama on Tuesday, February 14 and Wednesday, February 15 at 6.30pm on Channel 4.
