‘Hollyoaks’: Jennifer Metcalfe Praises Ayden Callaghan’s Stunts, Following Joe Roscoe’s Shock Death

The episode left viewers suitably stunned.

‘Hollyoaks’ actress Jennifer Metcalfe has praised her co-star Ayden Callaghan, following Tuesday’s (1 November) episode which saw his character, Joe Roscoe, dramatically fall to his death.

The duo filmed their own stunts for the Halloween Spooktacular specials, and Jennifer previously revealed that Ayden is actually scared of heights.

Now, she’s revealed what it was like filming the scenes, praising Ayden for doing all of his own stunts.

“Even though the cherry picker was swinging, I felt more stable on that than the ferris wheel,” she says. “I was so proud of him.

“He had all the wires on just in case, but that jump you see, he did that. Ayden actually did that jump.

“He did brilliantly, the cherry picker was miles away and he just jumped.”

Obviously, it did take quite a long time to get right, and Jennifer also admits: “We were there all night.”

Tuesday’s episode brought Hollyoaks’ Halloween drama to an end, and Joe wasn’t the only character we bid farewell to.

Nico Blake also died in the huge blaze, which was started by killer Cameron Campbell.
