What has Jonny McPherson said about Liam’s horror?

Actor Jonny McPherson – who plays Liam in the ITV soap – has spoken out about his character’s “absolute devastation” following Gabby’s accusation.

The actor revealed to Digital Spy: "Liam is absolutely devastated. The idea of somebody that you love thinking you're capable of doing some inappropriate with someone who's 18, 19, and has effectively been a daughter, is so outrageously inappropriate.

"It goes beyond being angry or frustrated. He's absolutely devastated."

"It's the fundamental feeling of not being trusted. It's such a terrible thing to accuse somebody of, so it's very difficult to come back from."

Jonny revealed to fans that "it's not a direct accusation at any point" and explained that part of what devastates Liam is the way Leyla is so quick to jump to a conclusion.

He explained: "I think to jump to a conclusion as quickly as Leyla does, that will be difficult to get over.”

He added: "Gabby does sufficiently little for Leyla to get the wrong end of the stick and to think that Liam might have done something untoward.
