In an interview with TV Times, Jamie revealed: "I was about 14 when I first set eyes on Emma Barton. I fell in love with her long, shapely legs and I wanted to marry her."

Recalling the moment he tried to work his charms on the 39-year-old, Jamie, now 22, said: "I remember walking over to her and saying, 'Alright darling. Wow, you smell nice.' We still laugh about it now."

Jamie admitted that he hasn't yet given up hope with Emma, adding: "I still try and chat her up and say that one day, we will get married... she's having none of it!"

God loves a trier, right?

Sadly, Jamie won't even get the chance to woo Emma onscreen. Her character Honey is in a relationship with Billy Mitchell and the pair are engaged again, following her return to Walford last year.

Although, according to Daily Star, there are rumours Honey could embark on an affair with Jack Branning.

When quizzed about the possibility of Honey and Jack getting together behind Billy's back, Emma told the publication: "I have no idea! Isn't it funny though? I love it when there's a bit of stirring... [but] I'm very happy with my Billy if I'm honest. I love my Billy and it's really lovely to have that. I think their relationship is important."
