Hollyoaks star James Sutton has revealed he'd love to quit smoking as his New Year's resolution. The actor has reprised his role on the Channel 4 soap and reckons that now he's approaching 30 he needs to embark on a health drive. "My resolutions last until about January 8," he confessed. "I'll probably give up smoking again. I'd been doing dead well on the electronic fags and then I ran out of cartridges and you know what happened next! "It's getting cold and I want my little comforts. It's disgusting and I hate it and I want to give up, but baby steps. I'm 30 next year, I don't want to be smoking at 30. I need to be looking after myself." "I'm one of the mature characters on the show," he joked, referring to the soap's young cast members. After a family Christmas in Shropshire, James will be ringing in the New Year in Scotland. "I'm going up to Inverness. I have a friend who runs a big Hogmanay night near Loch Ness," he said.
