As recently confirmed by show boss Bryan Kirkwood, John Paul will be a single man when he heads back to the village later this month.
Sutton told Inside Soap: "John Paul and Craig have had a tough time in Ireland together. Craig has put JP in a difficult situation, and that's part of the reason he goes back to the village."
He added: "I love the fact that fans still want them to be together. But the only person who knows the answer to whether we'll see Craig again is Guy Burnet, who played him.
"He's in the States filming a TV show at the moment, but I'd love to work with him again one day."
Sutton played Ryan Lamb in Emmerdale for two years and said that he was "a bit sad" not to have been involved in the recent live show.
However, he insisted that he is glad to be a part of the Hollyoaks cast again.
He hinted: "John Paul has some exciting storylines in store - and they're not what you might expect."
The actor recently expressed excitement over upcoming scenes with bad boy Brendan Brady. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
