has revealed that his Hollyoaks
character Doug reveals his homosexuality for the first time next week.
Brennan's alter ego Doug Carter shared a kiss
with business partner Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson) earlier this month, but has since been unable to cope with his feelings.
Speaking to Inside Soap
, the American actor explained: "Doug has shut himself off from the world - he hasn't been showing up for work and has been hiding away from Texas, Leanne and Denns.
"He's wholly unwilling to deal with the issue at hand - that's very much like Doug - and to everyone else he appears to be slipping into a deep depression.
"What's been cool about filming these scenes is discovering the nice group of people Doug has around him."
Teasing how Doug overcomes his fears, Brennan added: "Texas comes to the forefront, as she's one of the most important people in his life at Hollyoaks
"There's a lovely moment where she gently coaxes him into telling her the truth about his homosexuality."
