Soaps like EastEnders and Coronation Street like to shock with unexpected couplings.
Kind of like they do it to take a risk with an age gap relationship — but those romances are often doomed, with this lot as a case in point.
EastEnders age gap romance
Honey and Jay – EastEnders
While this isn’t entirely illegal, it feels like it should be.
After all, Jay was her husband Billy Mitchell’s foster son(ish).

And then there was the whole situation where he had sex with a kid and had to put himself on criminal records and Honey didn’t want him anywhere near her kids.
It’s just all a big failure and we need to stop pretending it’s acceptable and just move on.
They broke up now so let it be the end.
Jenny and Leo – Coronation Street
Mourning the death of her ex-husband, Jenny was vulnerable when Leo turned against her.
And while she brushed him off at first, she soon got the idea that the handsome builder would prime her knots and mind her mortar, or whatever builders do.
Even finding out she went to school with his father didn’t deter her.
But now they’re on the rocks because he’s hiding his planned new life in Canada from her. Oh Jenny, boys only think of themselves.
Another EastEnders age gap romance
Michelle and Preston – EastEnders
If you want to bring Michelle Fowler back with a new face, at least don’t give her a new personality.
When Michelle came back, she had transformed from the old Michelle into a dirty female version of Dirty Den after he got her pregnant when she was 16.
Because she didn’t return alone – with her came her former student and now lover Preston Cooper.
Pass the medical bag, PLEASE.
Sharon and Keanu – EastEnders
Queen Sharon had every reason to cheat on her boring husband Phil Mitchell.
He’d humiliated her enough over the years and she deserved some happiness — but did she have to find it with Keanu Taylor, a man young enough to be her son?
Yes, he looked great shirtless, but there was nothing on top – and the whole thing blew Sharon up.
She became pregnant with his child at the same time that stepdaughter Louise was also pregnant with his child.
Cain and Ollie – Emmerdale
There’s an age difference relationship and there’s nurturing and abuse – and this was definitely the latter.

Cain Dingle set out to foster 15-year-old Ollie to get back at her mother for ending their affair.
It was a sick act, wrong on every level – and yet Emmerdale still broadcast it. And again during the classic Emmerdale slot.
