He’s 23, lives with his parents and recently spent 14 months in prison for fighting in a nightclub.

Yet all that hasn’t stopped bad boy Lincoln Warmington from having two of soap’s hottest stars on speed dial.

Brooke VincentCorrie‘s lesbian Sophie Webster – and Jennifer Metcalfe, who plays Hollyoaks vixen Mercedes Fisher, are both enthralled by Lincoln, with Jen even calling Brooke, 18, to warn her off him.

‘He’s quite a naughty lad and he’s been playing them both off each other,’ a source close to the action tells Now.

Jen‘s been saying he’s her boyfriend and she took him to the launch of her clothing firm The Closet a few weeks ago.

Jen, 27, previously dated footballer Jermaine Pennant, who has also spent time in jail, but they broke up last year after he made a move to a Spanish club.

Afterwards, Jen admitted she’d started seeing someone new, adding:

‘He’s not famous, just an ordinary guy.’

A spokesman for Coronation Street says:

Brooke does know Lincoln, but has never dated him and doesn’t think of him in that way.’

Hollyoaks had no comment to make.
