Hollyoaks introduces new hunk Brody Hudson in sensational fashion next week during the soap's special Ibiza episodes as he emerges from the sea wearing nothing but a pair of blue swimming shorts... Could the search for the next James Bond be over already?

Ellie Nightingale touches down on the party island on Monday's E4 episode, beginning a weeks' worth of on-screen Ibiza fun, and enjoys the scenery when she spies buff Brody (played by newcomer Adam Woodward) frolicking in the surf.

The two catch each others' eyes and it's clear there's a spark, but Brody's interest in sexy teacher Neeta Kaur puts lovesick pupil Hunter McQueen's nose out of joint.

On Wednesday, the Hudson hottie's attentions focus on Ellie once again and they continue to flirt, with fun to be had as the naughty Nightingale pushes the poser into the pool.

But Holly is jittery around the couple as they get closer. Having been invited to her rich Auntie Jude's posh villa on the party island, Holly was hoping a relaxing break with pal Ellie would help the pair move on from their ordeal at the hands of jailed rapist Nick Savage - but it seems Holly is having more trouble putting it behind her than she thought...

A number of fans will be happy to hear that Brody will be following the gang home to Hollyoaks from Ibiza and is set to become a regular fixture on the show as he's also the best mate of Scott Drinkwell's long-lost brother, Damon Kinsella. 

Will his pursuit of Ellie lure Brody back to Blighty?

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