Discussing Darlene's romance with Dwayne, Ginny explained: "Back then, Darlene was Dwayne's love interest. He was very, very, very, very popular, very cheeky. They were going out and seeing one another. And I really loved their relationship. He was always trying to lead her on or play games with her, but she was always one or two steps ahead and always caught him out.

"She was really sassy and sexy and just loved being a woman… She just loved the relationship with Dwayne. And then he ended up going off with his father, and she was just left!"
She said whether Darlene would rekindle a romance with Dwayne, and, should Danny return to the show, she added: "Do you know what I think? I think she would [get back together with him] because he was such a cheeky character… she would be tempted because they had quite a close bond. They had a good bond. They had a nice relationship, a really nice relationship so yeah. Yeah, she would!"

The star also hinted about the mysteries introduced in the latest episode, including Neville's friend Andy arriving on the island and the final moments of episode two, where Robert Webb's character Justin is watching Neville sinisterly. While Ginny of course couldn't give away any spoilers, she admitted that she was on “the edge of [her] seat” watching the upcoming episodes. We can’t wait to find out why!
