Jason Roscoe, played by Alfie Browne-Sykes debuted on-screen during the episode airing on 23 May 2013. Jason is Robbie's twin sibling who could not be more different from as he is intelligent, kind-hearted and destined for success. Despite this, he has a strong bond with Robbie and always covers for him when he misbehaves. On his casting, the actor said: "I'm settling in really well. Everyone on the show is so nice and helpful, so they make you feel really welcome and that means you're never afraid to ask any questions. It's all going well so far." Official E4 Hollyoaks website describes Jason being "brilliant, happy, insecure and troubled all at once." Sykes describes Jason as a "nice, generous and kind-hearted" character. Jason deals with the accounts side of the family motor maintenance business and he also boxes
|“||Intelligent, sensitive and firmly rooted, Jason Roscoe is possibly the most pleasant of the Roscoe clan. He's the quiet in a house of hectic noise. Don't mistake him for a wimp though. Jason won't let his brothers - or anyone - push him around, and has a quieter, less showy strength.||”|
Sykes described the audition process as "nerve-wracking", before securing the role he received a call-back and multiple auditions. All of which were with Fabrizio who plays his on screen brother Ziggy. In the end, they both finally managed to get the parts just before Christmas 2012.
Sykes explained the character's relationship with his brothers, saying they have "a bit of banter and they take the mickey, but I think that's to be expected with brothers." He added his relationship with Robbie is different from all the other brothers saying "Robbie is the one who walks all over Jason. You'll see that Jason looks after Robbie - not in a physical sense, but he helps to make sure that the other Roscoes don't find out various things that Robbie gets up to". He continued to reveal that Jason tries to get Robbie on the straight and narrow saying "he always tries to have little chats with Robbie and get through to him, but it just never seems to work!"
On 9 April 2014, it was announced that Jason would be involved in a dysmorphic disorder storyline to begin playing out in summer. He has been seen by viewers to have body issues and has expressed concern with what he looked like and had previously consulted his brother, Ziggy for advice. Jason's issues will become more serious when, in June, he gets involved with a drug dealer. He will become very intrigued to learn about the drug dealer dealing steroids and decides to buy some - but it leads to him overdosing.
News of this new storyline came as the 'National Institute for Health and Care Excellence' (NICE) warned that the number of people putting themselves at risk by using steroids is "rapidly increasing". They said; "Using steroids to enhance athletic performance or to build muscle mass can cause a variety of health problems. However, NICE research suggests that around 60,000 people injected anabolic steroids last year." It was also said that Jason's story will see his paranoia over his body image slowly escalate in the coming months. Browne-Sykes previously said that he was looking forward to "delving deeper into his character's issues." He said in December 2013: "I am really hoping it will be explored more. At [Jason's] age, people can be concerned about their bodies and how they look and I think it'd be a great thing for us to get into more with Jason." In May 2014, it was discovered Rick (Victor Gardener) is Jason's father and also Robbie's. It is unclear whether he is the father of Jason's other brothers.

He begins modelling for a lonely wives website with help from Marlena McQueen (Diane Langton), which puts his potential relationship with Leela Lomax (Kirsty-Leigh Porter), in jeopardy, after she catches him 'flexing' in the toilets whilst they are on a date.

He also has a "cheeky twinkle in his eyes" which charm everyone. Billington told the writer that can relate to Danny because he also teaches and gets along with young people. But he warned that Danny has a different side to his personality. Viewers will not discover this until later on because it will be revealed over time. Billington added that "you'll still like him, but he’s much more complex than he first appears."
In an unpublicised storyline twist, Danny is revealed to be Ste Hay's (Kieron Richardson) biological father. Billington told Kilkelly that he was "absolutely thrilled" with his storyline and that he was always aware of the development. He explained that Danny had attempted to make contact on many occasions but Ste's mother, Pauline Hay (Jane Hogarth) prevented it. Billington also warned that Danny had more secrets yet to be disclosed and was confident that Danny would be able to charm the audience with his persona. The actor added that Danny is "definitely not a bad person. He's just a bit of a free spirit and he likes getting his own way. Perhaps he's a bit greedy too, but when it comes down to it, he's a fundamentally good guy." The following episode another secret about the character was revealed as viewers were introduced to Danny's wife Sam Lomax (Lizzie Roper). Kilkelly reported Sam would be a prominent character as Danny "desperately" attempts to maintain family life and his affair with John Paul. In September 2013, the show announced the arrival of Danny and Sam's three children Leela (Kirsty-Leigh Porter), Peri (Ruby O'Donnell) and Tegan Lomax (Jessica Ellis).

Danny denies this and tells John Paul he has a son but does not name Ste. Danny has sex with John Paul before going to meet up with his secret wife Sam. He continues to see John Paul and deceive Sam. His student Robbie Roscoe (Charlie Wernham) discovers their affair and threatens to tell Sam if he does not prevent his expulsion from the college. Doug Carter later figures out that Danny is Ste's dad. Doug confronts Danny and Danny admits to being Ste's dad. At Ste's and Doug's leaving party, a bomb goes off killing Doug. Danny later finds Ste at the deli with a bottle of vodka and pills. Danny tries to stop Ste from committing suicide and Ste tells Danny that he doesn't even know him and that he is nothing to him. Danny then tells Ste that he means everything to him because he is his son.
In 2014, Peri sees Danny kissing John Paul on a camera she had set up. In the following weeks, she is diagnosed with a brain tumour and, when she confronts Danny about his affair with John Paul, he convinces her that it didn't happen and her brain tumour is causing her to think that it did. Sam finds out about this but only tells Danny weeks later to keep their family together. Sam forgives Danny, as he promises never to stray again. Soon after, on the laptop, Sam discovers that Danny has an account on a gay dating website and is talking to somebody online and planning to meet them. She confronts him angrily, but then begins to believe that Sienna Blake (Anna Passey) did it. Sienna tells them it was Peri, but soon after, tells Peri that it was Sam and Danny who believed it was her. Sam later tells Danny she cannot forgive him and ends their relationship. Danny then discovers that the man he was talking to online was in fact George Smith (Steven Roberts). He visits him and they kiss.
Of Danny's arrival, a writer from Fabulous magazine said that "there's never a dull moment in Hollyoaks" and quipped that Danny wanted to get involved with John Paul "in more ways than one".

Roper stated "I'm so lucky getting to play Sam: one moment she's fun and feisty starting food fights, the next she's facing up to gangsters and doing everything she can to bring them to justice. She's not afraid of anything and has got a heart of gold, but when it comes to her family she's a lioness - don't mess with her!"
