Duncan's hoping that his fellow popstar-turned-soapstar Shayne Ward might have some advice 

Duncan’s storyline will see him work go head-to-head with Kieron, as he will play the boyfriend of Amy Barnes, the mother of Ste Hay’s two kids, and he dished the dirt on his upcoming arrival.

"I'm going to be doing lots of scenes with the kids," he teased. "I'm really excited about joining 'Hollyoaks'.
