“Nicky’s a great character. He’s very relatable, likeable, and I’m just having fun with him,” Lewis said when discussing his new role.
When asked if Nicky has a dark past, the soap star continued: “At the moment he’s a lovely person, and there’s nothing to say [otherwise]… he kind of fits the bill.
“He is almost too good to be true, but we’ll have to wait and see.”
Emmerdale airs weekdays at 7pm on ITV.
