Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks has revealed a brand-new logo – and will also launch a new titles sequence tonight, its first refresh in six years.

The new intro is to move away from the previous CGI style to scenes filmed in different sets on location in the village.

Executive producer Bryan Kirkwood said: “I am thrilled with the new titles. I think they are vibrant, fun and glossy and from the first opening guitar riff feel completely Hollyoaks.

“It is great to see our characters in their own precincts and they will evolve as characters come and go.”

Viewers will also find that the titles music has also had a refresh with a new arrangement by musician A-Skillz.

Set across day and night scenes, the titles – shot by Hollyoaks director Sean Glynn – open with Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson) riding a carousel with his children Leah and Lucas. They also feature Sienna Blake (Anna Passey) lying on a bed of petals.

Holly and Zack (Amanda Clapham and Duayne Boachie) are glimpsed having a water fight in a hot tub, while villain Nico Blake (Persephone Swales Dawson) is seen standing ominously in front of a burning fire.

The last shot of the titles shows Hollyoaks village at night with Mercedes (Jennifer Metcalfe) twirling in the moonlight in a red dress.
