That’s it for this edition of Gays of Our Lives. I love to hear from readers so please share your comments on the thoughts and opinions expressed in this week’s column below. You can also tweet me @adlangford or email me at



  1. Now that EE has hired the actor,Ted Reilly, to play NuJohnny, I’d say he and Jonny Labey (Paul) look like they’d complement each other pretty well.

  2. You’re question about “why EE had Ben out all night picking up guys when he’s so love with Paul” will be answered in the coming week. It plays into
    Abi faking her pregnancy and her plan now to actually get pregnant. It’s
    actually a pretty good twist and causes more trouble in her dastardly plotting.

  3. The guy who came upon Ben and Abi in the caf (EastEnders) is “Jordan Johnson.” He’s a recast of a character from several years ago and has a history with both Ben and Abi. Jordan is actually Abi’s first “boyfriend” from a brief *tween* romance when they each experienced their first kiss. As boys, Jordan and Ben didn’t get along. Ben even knocked Jordan out once, and he ended up in a coma in the hospital.

    EE has been playing that Jordan would be returning since early January. He’s Denise’s step-son from her bad marriage to serial killer, Lucas Johnson. Lucas asked Denise to come visit him in prison, where he begged her to check up on Jordan, since he’s been getting in trouble with drugs and gangs. Jordan’s now staying with the Fox-Hubbard family and to everyone’s surprise already has a young son of his own, “J.J.”

    Here’s a sample of young Ben vs. Jordan:

  4. Anthony, your Teasers for Next Week about American Crime seems to contain a major spoiler about Taylor. Not cool!

  5. Maybe days will pull another ‘It was all a dream’! Ha.
    EE: poor Paul… I wonder if Johnny coming back kicks Ben’s bum into action: Johnny and Paul as a couple makes lots of sense.
    Emmerdale: hate and love, two sides of the same coin.
    Holby: never a truer word spoken, Lee is fit with bells on!
    SL: they clearly want Keller to be the bad guy that forces Lari/Ellastone back together. They were a terrible couple though.
    Thank as always ADL

  6. Would I be shocked if “General Hospital” completely forgot about the scene Alexis had with Julian when he was struggling with Lucas being gay and point blank asked her how she’d react to one of her daughters coming out and Alexis pretty much had no problem with it?

    Sadly, no.
