Shaq will ruffle more than a few feathers with his chaotic arrival in Hollyoaks as he shows up in the village in his wedding Sherwani, after supposedly ditching his fiancé on their wedding day…

With Sami still blissfully unaware that his girlfriend has been lying about her pregnancy, will straight-talking Shaq be the one to find out the truth…

Shaq is a charming new resident of Hollyoaks village and wastes no time getting to know the single ladies in town, could be a new romance on the cards?

Omar will first appear as Shaq on Hollyoaks on Friday 5th March (E4).
