Chloe was introduced to the soap last year as the sister of Sarah’s heart donor.

Chloe and Noah soon began a relationship, however his mum Charity and Kerry tried to keep them apart as Chloe’s father, who’s in prison, was extremely protective.

After Chloe warned her father to back off, he had her kicked her out of their home and she went to live with Kerry, who had been working for her father.

Noah and Chloe began a relationship but she ended things after she slept with Jacob.

Noah didn’t take the break-up well and over the last few weeks he’s been trying to get into Chloe’s good books.

However what Chloe doesn’t know is Noah has started to track her phone. He’s also been using a drone with a camera to spy on her in her bedroom.

When Jack was asked what the reaction has been to the stalker storyline so far, Jack told Entertainment Daily and other media: “Well you do get he odd little interaction in public where people think that you might be like your character in real life.”

“But I promise I’m not!” Jack added with a laugh.

“But yeah, it’s been really different and I played a totally different side to Noah!”

Jack went on to mention Noah’s dad Chris Tate, who was previously married to Noah’s mum Charity Dingle, before he committed suicide, attempting to frame her for his death.

Talking about Noah, Jack said: “Maybe we’re seeing more of the Tate side coming through and his dad that’s never come through really before.”
