Speaking to Metro.co.uk, Todd revealed that it’s Tim Metcalfe’s mother, Elaine Jones, who catches Stephen’s eye.

“First off quite quickly there’s an attraction between him and Elaine,” Todd said.

“Historically he was a bit of a toyboy and I love the repetition of that, he seems to be attracted to ladies who are a little bit older than him, not as much older as in the past as in the past but he definitely isn’t after he younger women on the street.”
