Talking about playing a gay character, Lucy said: "It's different for me, a challenge, but one I'm happy to grasp and I'm enjoying.

"It's a fantastic opportunity."

Christian and Syed - who are currently planning their wedding - will be leaving the soap in November as part of a dramatic storyline.

When asked if Danny is the main reason behind their exit, Lucy added: "I don't think it's the real reason that they leave, but I don't think it helps much."
