Hollyoaks have officially launched their six weeks of summer campaign for 2017, niftily branded as #HollyoaksSOS on social media, with plans just announced for Facebook Live events every week over the summer period.
At an exclusive party at the soap’s set last night, cast and crew were treated to a first look at scenes filmed on location in Ibiza, featuring the introduction of new hunk Brody Hudson, and forbidden romance brewing between teacher Neeta Kaur and schoolboy Hunter McQueen.
The bash also celebrated the return of fan favourites Luke Morgan and Mandy Richardson, ahead of Gary Lucy and Sarah Jayne Dunn’s on-screen reunion next week – the first time they’ve been in the show together for 15 years.
Other storylines across the summer include Sienna Blake being diagnosed with cancer, further twists in the ‘Who Killed Amy Barnes?’ mystery, the return of Tracey Donovan and Darren Osborne hiding some big secrets from wife Nancy.
Ashley James will host seven special Facebook Live shows every Thursday afternoon – starting today 20 July at 4.34pm on the Hollyoaks Facebook page.
