Hollyoaks star Andy Moss has admitted that he has a crush on his screen mum, Suzanne Hall. Andy, who plays Rhys Ashworth in Channel 4's teen soap, said all his male co-stars have the hots for Suzanne, who plays mum-of-three Suzanne Ashworth. The actor told website Holy Soap: "Everyone fancies Suzanne. All the lads in the cast wish she was actually one of the Hollyoaks girls rather than mums." He added: "I think she's gorgeous. She's a scrummy mummy." Hollyoaks viewers have recently seen Rhys walk in on his mum as she was getting steamy with village hunk, Darren Osborne (Ashley Taylor-Dawson). Asked if he is jealous of his co-star for acting out the screen romps, Andy said: "I think so... Obviously, because she plays my mum, and looks after me at work it would be weird... but I just wanted to say she's pretty!"
