And now James has confirmed that ladies’ man Zack will set his sights on Nancy as she makes her way back to Walford.
Teasing what’s in store for Zack and Nandy, James told The Sun Online and other media: “There’s a certain blonde that’s returning that I have a feeling there might be some friction with and considering a lot of my scenes are with the Carters, you’ll probably be able to guess who that is.”
Discussing who else Zack will be crossing paths with in the coming weeks, James added: "There is some stuff with Ruby, though, and Jean.
"There’s also some stuff with Bobby, who is such a terrific young actor.
"The fact that Gillian and Letitia were in my opening episode was great – long may that continue. Whether it’s Phil or Kathy or Sharon – I love the history there. Zack has no idea who these guys are or how long they’ve been in Walford.”
Zack made a brief appearance at Gavin Sullivan’s funeral earlier this month – and was revealed to be Sharon’s long-lost brother.
And in scenes set to air next week, Zack will rock up in Walford, determined to build a relationship with his sister.
Zack receives a mixed welcome from Sharon when he turns up on the Square, but he insists on buying her breakfast later in the week.
When Kheerat comes over after spotting Sharon with a mysterious newcomer, Zack sneakily swipes her keys while she isn’t looking.
Sharon later catches Zack rifling through her things at her flat, and she’s unsettled when he announces he's discovered that their late dad Gavin left them both something in his will.
Asked whether Zack has had a difficult childhood – and whether the soap will explore that in upcoming scenes – James added: "There’s trauma, certainly.
"Seeing as nobody knows him, it’s hard for Zack to fit in, seeing as he finds it easy to impress with his charisma, but makes so many mistakes due to his upbringing.
"There are already scenes I've shot that show that there’s reasons behind the way he acts when he acts in an ignorant way. But the majority of the time he’s a nice guy."
