Hollyoaks Sutton Smoking, Hollyoaks star James Sutton has revealed that he would love to quit smoking in the new year – but would find the resolution difficult to keep. The actor, who has reprised his role on the show as John Paul McQueen, confessed that he wanted to take greater care of his health now he was nearing 30, even though it could be a short-lived promise.
“My resolutions last until about January 8,” he confessed. “I’ll probably give up smoking again. I’d been doing dead well on the electronic fags and then I ran out of cartridges and you know what happened next!
“It’s getting cold and I want my little comforts. It’s disgusting and I hate it and I want to give up, but baby steps. I’m 30 next year, I don’t want to be smoking at 30. I need to be looking after myself. I’m one of the mature characters of the show,” he said jokingly in reference to his younger co-stars.
James added that after having a family Christmas in Shropshire, he had big plans for New Year’s Eve – which he would be spending in Scotland.
“I’m going up to Inverness. I have a friend who runs a big Hogmanay night near Loch Ness,” he revealed.
