'Hollyoaks' Claire Cooper: 'I want Jacqui to help Phoebe'

By
Hollyoaks star Claire Cooper has revealed that her character Jacqui is looking for a "purpose" when she tries to help homeless teenager Phoebe Jackson.

Jacqui takes pity on Phoebe (Mandip Gill) in next week's episodes, offering her a place to stay - despite the concerns of husband Rhys (Andrew Moss).

Phoebe later leaves Jacqui furious by stealing Terry the dog and doing a disappearing act. However, even afterwards, forgiving Jacqui remains keen to get Phoebe's life back on track.

Cooper told All About Soap: "There's something pulling Jacqui there and making her intervene - she can't stop herself.

"Jacqui does thrive off helping people. She's got a husband and a dog, she works in a pub and they just manage to get enough money to pay the rent each month, so Jacqui needs a bit more purpose in her life."

She added: "I hope she'll go to great lengths to help Phoebe and lead her down the right path. Looking after people was instilled in Jacqui from a young age, and here's a vulnerable girl that Jacqui really feels she can help, so she'll try all she can."

Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4 with a first look screening at 7pm on E4.
