Hollyoaks Will Mellor reveals his pride as rarely seen son lands modelling deal


WILL Mellor has shared his pride after his teenage son Jayden landed a modelling deal.

The Hollyoaks and Coronation Street star took to Instagram to praise the 17 year old on his exciting news today.

Will – who most recently played villain Harvey Gaskell in Corrie – shared a photo of a smiling Jayden showing off his model looks.

The 45 year old wrote over the sweet snap: "So chuffed my son has signed with @wilanoagency to start his modelling career !!"

The celeb lives with his wife Michelle McSween and their kids Renee, 13, and Jayden, 17, in a plush Cheshire home.

And he has shared a glimpse of their lavish life on his Instagram.

Will – who grew up on a council estate – has opted for teal green walls, oak floor boards and a stunning white fire place.

The huge kitchen boasts white walls and matching cupboards and work tops.

Will and wife Michelle met in 1999 when they starred in the musical Oh, What a Night together and they tied the knot in 2007.

The TV star recently opened up about how different his life was when he was a child, and swerving a life of crime.

Will revealed his dad Bill used to hit him, saying: "The way he disciplined me as a kid I wouldn’t do that to my son.

"But different times call for different measures, he was struggling. He was in prison when I was very young. We grew up on a council estate, we were poor but loved and we didn’t feel poor as kids.

"His dad was horrendous. So as I see it he was an improvement. I knew his shortcomings weren’t his fault. And he loved us.

"He didn’t really know how to show it a lot of the times; he never really hugged us that much. If he give me a crack for something he’d come up and say sorry at the end of the night and I could sleep after that."

In April 2020 the actor was left devastated when his dad passed away – later revealing that he "couldn't even say goodbye".

The star reflected on a difficult year when he appeared on ITV's This Morning to discuss his Coronation Street role – prompting host Phillip Schofield to ask: "I'm so sorry, you lost your dad during lockdown didn't you?"

Will replied: "Yeah, it's been horrendous, it has been really tough.

"I know a lot of people have been going through it out there and it is hard, it's the toughest thing to lose someone like that.

"He was my hero and we did everything together, but to do it in lockdown when I couldn't be with him, I couldn't hug him, I couldn't say goodbye – not in the right way…"
