Hollyoaks releases new train crash trailer – spoilers

The C4 soap will feature an explosive stunt in the coming months that is to leave characters fighting to survive

Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks has released a new promo that spotlights the upcoming train disaster which is set to leave lives hanging in the balance later this year.


The train crash will coincide with the upcoming wedding of Porsche McQueen (Twinnie Lee Moore) and Lockie Campbell (Nick Rhys).

Speaking last month, James Sutton – who plays John Paul McQueen – commented: “This stunt is a huge thing to undertake – We are quite literally crashing a train.”

The trailer features John Paul, alongside such other prominent characters as Maxine, Patrick, Dodger and Mercedes. As viewers can see, the fact that the trailer is being promoted with the tagline ‘End of the Line’ suggests that not everyone is going to make it out of this one alive.

Hollyoaks has a long history of featuring high profile and explosive stuntwork. Past plotlines include the bus crash that wrecked the double wedding of Tony and Cindy alongside Ste and Doug, while a bomb blast put paid to the latter pair’s leaving party a year later in 2013.
