On screen, the lives of their Hollyoaks characters are filled with drama and excitement. Daisy Wood-Davis and Luke Jerdy are both breakout stars of the long-running Channel 4 soap. Daisy’s character, Kim Butterfield, has featured in some of the show’s biggest storylines, including the long-running ‘gloved hand killer’ murder saga, while Luke plays Jesse Donovan, whose colourful love life keeps viewers entertained.

Their private life is much less turbulent – in reality, Daisy and Luke are just like any other couple. They’ve been together for two years, though they’d actually met several years before finding fame in Hollyoaks, when they were introduced by a mutual friend. The lovebirds live together, post snaps of their holidays on Instagram and, as we discovered recently, enjoy sofa shopping.

Having the perfect sofa in your home can make all the difference, a place to snooze, indulge in Netflix marathons and unwind after a long day at work. We were delighted to see Daisy and Luke pop into our Speke store in Merseyside recently to pick out their dream sofa.

Having browsed our extensive range of sofas, Daisy and Luke fell in love with the Richmonde – a fine choice, if we say so ourselves. It’s one of our comfiest sofas, with plush, luxurious upholstery and oh-so soft seats. Handcrafted in the UK, the sofa is made from hand dyed Italian, deep pile velvet and each deep seat is sprung to the edge which means as well as being extremely comfortable it’s also resilient. It’s absolutely perfect for curling up together in the evening and relaxing – and it sounds as if Daisy and Luke are delighted with their choice.


“Buzzing to have chosen our new sofa today,” Luke posted on Instagram, together with a photo of him and Daisy sitting on the Richmonde. “Gonna have soooo many naps on this.”

We’re happy the real-life Hollyoaks couple had a great experience with us and found their ideal sofa with Sofology. Here’s to many years of chilling out on their luxurious Richmonde sofa.
