And now for something really nostagic as Hollyoaks celebrates Hollyoaks@25 with 5 showcase weeks, one spectacular week for every 5 years the show has been on the air.
Next week will kick off with a trip back to 1999 and the first ever huge stunt. A young Tony, Lewis, Ruth and Lucy are in serious danger from unhinged villain Rob Hawthorne who is holding them captive in a huge water tank.
How will they escape Rob’s evil plan of vengeance? Well that would be telling.
To introduce this new series is longest cast member Nick Pickard (Tony Hutchinson) and Jennifer Metcalfe (Mercedes McQueen). Together, they discuss the episodes to come ahead of the Birthday, whilst socially distancing on the show’s set.
Speaking about the new series Nick Picard said: “I can’t believe it’s been as long as 25 years. After my first call back for Tony Hutchinson, I would never have guessed that I would still be here all these years later.
Mercedes actress Jennifer Metcalfe is equally as excited saying: “I for one am proper excited for Hollyoaks@25, and to get to do the first set of intros with the legendary Nick, who plays Tony, was just brilliant. It was lovely to see Nick again, even if we were two metres apart.
Hollyoaks@25 will air weeknights from Monday 27th July on E4 at 7pm.
