The Hollyoaks gang hit Ibiza next week as the soap goes on location to the Spanish holiday destination, kicking off the annual 'Six Weeks of Summer' episodes. 

Holly Cunningham and Ellie Nightingale head off on a girls' holiday, but little brothers Alfie and Tom are cramping their style by also tagging along - and with McQueen teen twins Prince and Hunter managing to scrape the cash for a flight at the last minute and Sally St Claire also whisking her colleague (and secret crush) Neeta Kaur on the trip, it promises to be an action-packed excursion...  

The gang touch down on the idyllic island in Monday's E4 episode and the Ibiza action stretches across the week. Click on the links to read about Hunter growing closer to Neeta and Ellie meeting a new man - in the meantime, here's some sun-kissed snaps of the cast on location earlier this year to whet your appetite (or make you jealous you didn't get to go...).  

Sophie Porley (Ellie Nightingale), Amanda Clapham (Holly Cunningham) and Amrit Maghera (Neeta Kaur) soak up the sunshine. 

The boys touch down: Richard Linnell (Alfie Nightingale), Ellis Hollins (Tom Cunningham), Malique Thompson Dwyer (Prince McQueen) and Theo Graham (Hunter McQueen).

New hunk Adam Woodward (Brody Hudson) poses as he prepares for his screen debut in the special episodes where he emerges, Daniel Craig style, from the sea in his trunks...

Porley and Clapham film an intense poolside scene - can their characters move on from a difficult few months?   

Maghera gets a touch-up before filming, will passion ignite for Neeta on holiday?

Lads alert! Graham, Hollins and Linnell sip refreshments between scenes.

Hollyoaks continues weeknights on E4 at 7pm and on Channel 4 at 6.30pm.
