Peri Lomax has been the object of Timmy’s obsession for some time in Hollyoaks but despite the warnings from worried girlfriend Juliet Nightingale, Peri has dismissed the thought that she could have a stalker.
And while Peri finds herself in danger when Timmy closes in and locks her in in her own home after she uncovers the truth, Ruby O’Donnell has warned Metro.co.uk that the biggest danger in Peri’s eyes is that she could lose the woman she loves through this.
She explained to us: ‘Peri has not been nice to Juliet about the allegations and the main thing has to be trust and Peri trusted a total stranger over her girlfriend. All Peri wants to be is loved so for her to dismiss Juliet so quickly, has she ruined it?
‘If I were Juliet, I’m not sure I would forgive Peri. Juliet has had a hindered past too, so maybe she can see she has made a mistake. Peri is so upset and frightened she will lose Juliet forever because she is so in love with her.’
It is certainly a fear for the fans – and there is no bigger fan of the coupling than Ruby herself, who is full of joy that Peri and Juliet’s relationship resonates so well with fans.
The actress enthused: ‘#Jeri has been my favourite coupling I have ever had in the show, partly because Niamh is my best mate so we can easily find friendship and love in that. When we first heard about them getting together, we didn’t know how it would work as they’re so different but they say opposites attract.
‘We soon realised in the scripts that they work well – Peri is very sporadic so Juliet grounds her and Peri has helped Juliet trust and mature. It is Hollyoaks so it’s never going tobe plain sailing. But I love the pairing.’
She continued: ‘Niamh and I found out a few years ago about #Jeri because of the flashfoward. We thought the fans would hate us as we thought everyone would be on Juliet and Sid’s team.
‘I think it’s because they are so unassuming as a couple and the LGBTQ+ community seems to think they are good, honest couple who give positive representation.
‘So obviously we are chuffed with the reaction but when the stories go like this I worry about how they will react. When one of you messes up, they really come down on you but it means they care which we love, their passion is amazing.’
There is plenty of drama to follow and a twist that viewers won’t see coming so there is a lot at stake for the couple.
Let’s just hope that they can get through this and ride the storm ahead…
