Hollyoaks stars Nick Pickard and James Sutton have tipped the show for success at this year’s British Soap Awards. 

The Channel 4 soap has been nominated in every category for the first round of viewer voting. Last year’s annual soap awards was a hugely successful night for the serial, earning them five awards. 

Speaking on Lorraine today (April 17) about whether they can continue their success this year, Pickard said: “I’d like to think so. We did really well last year. We got five awards, so I think we can do a few more this year, which will be nice.” 

Pickard, who plays Tony Hutchinson, is currently nominated for the Best Actor award alongside co-stars Kieron Richardson and Jeremy Sheffield. 

He said: “I am nominated with Jeremy and Kieron Richardson from the show. It would be nice to get one, but it is just a great night. It’s fantastic. I think we make the most noise, without a doubt.” 

Sutton, who plays John Paul McQueen, added: “I think we are nominated in every category, and we would love to get shortlisted in every category because Hollyoaks tells wonderful stories.” 

He continued: “We have these really loud, fun storylines but we also cover really sensitive, important issues. Our audience is predominately quite young, and we tell these important stories for them, so we would love to get some awards for it.” 

Viewers will know that Pickard and Sutton have both tackled hard-hitting storylines over the last year. Long-standing character Tony was diagnosed with testicular cancer last April, while John Paul was sexually attacked earlier this year by Finn O’Connor, who is one of his students. 

Pickard said: “I was very privileged to be given the storyline. It’s quite harrowing, but I was really pleased to be given the storyline. We went to a lot of places with it.”

Speaking about his own storyline, Sutton added: “Again, like Nick, I have been very lucky to have been given quite an important storyline.”

"You feel a certain amount of responsibility to do it justice, really. We worked closely with Survivors in Manchester, which is a male sexual assault group. We worked with them and we did our research, and we are very proud of it. It is a wonderful time for Hollyoaks. We do some good stuff.”

Hollyoaks star Nikki Sanderson is currently involved in one of the soap’s darkest storylines, as her character Maxine Minniver remains in an abusive relationship with Hollyoaks High headteacher Patrick Blake. 

Last week, Maxine finally found the strength to leave Patrick (Jeremy Sheffield) but it wasn’t long before he manipulated her into giving him another chance. 

Off-screen, Nikki has been working with the Home Office to raise awareness of domestic violence. She has also been nominated for Best Actress in the British Soap Awards 2014 longlist, which is currently being voted for by fans. 

Digital Spy recently caught up with Nikki to chat about the Soap Awards recognition and the latest twists in the Maxine and Patrick story.

Hollyoaks actress Tamara Wall has confirmed that her character Grace Black will “be the most obvious suspect” when her father Fraser is murdered. 

Fraser’s final scenes will air in a fortnight’s time as one of his many enemies takes drastic steps to get rid of him, kicking off a new mystery storyline for the Channel 4 soap. 

In the aftermath of the villain’s shock death, Grace is among those acting in a suspicious manner, as she seems determined to escape police scrutiny by pinning the crime on someone else. 

Wall told All About Soap: “There are so many people in the whodunit lineup, but Grace is the most obvious suspect. Many people will think it’s her, but the list of potential killers goes on and on. Right after Fraser is killed, Grace is on the warpath to try and blame someone for the crime.” 

"She wants to pin it on Tegan first. Then Grace finds a bag of clothes in a bin liner under the sofa in her and Trevor’s flat, and when she asks him about it, he acts a bit dodgy. She ends up getting him arrested, which is awful. Not only has she lost her dad, she’s lost the love of her life." 

Fraser’s demise puts Grace in charge of the Black family empire, which may leave some fans wondering whether this was her plan all along. 

Wall added: “You do have to wonder if Grace, being the twisted person she is, has done the whole thing just to get hold of Fraser’s money!”

"It would be a great storyline - her actually murdering her own dad. But I don’t want it to be Grace, since that means she’ll have to go to prison. I’m hoping viewers will stick with Grace because she does get a lot more fun, I promise."

Hollyoaks star Kieron Richardson has had a busy few weeks on screen as his alter ego Ste Hay has been caught up in dramas with John Paul McQueen, Sinead Roscoe and the village’s gangsters. 

Life won’t get any easier for Ste over the next few weeks as a darker storyline for him kicks off in May, allowing the popular character to take centre stage in his own right. 

Off-screen, Kieron is also in the running for the Best Actor prize in this year’s British Soap Awards long list, which is currently being voted for by fans. 

Digital Spy recently caught up with Kieron to hear about Ste’s next big storyline, the upcoming ‘Who Killed Fraser?’ plot, the awards nomination and much more.

Hollyoaks star Ayden Callaghan has revealed that he thinks his on-screen mother Sandy Roscoe could be responsible for Fraser Black’s murder. 

As previously reported, Fraser (Jesse Birdsall) will meet an untimely demise in a dramatic new plot making several village residents a suspect. 

However, Callaghan, who plays Joe in the Channel 4 soap, has admitted that the cast are currently all in the dark over the identity of the culprit. 

Speaking to Inside Soap, Callaghan said: “I was in a restaurant the other day with Tamara Wall (Grace), Charlie Wernham (Robbie), Joe Tracini (Dennis) and my girlfriend. We were gossiping about who it could be like we were fans on Twitter.” 

"I keep changing my mind every day, but I am wondering if the killer will Sandy. She’s a mum who’ll do anything to protect her family." 

Speaking about his character’s own reasons for wanting Fraser dead, Callaghan said: “When Joe wakes up, he remembers pretty much everything that happened to him at the hands of Grace.” 

"He’s also well on to Fraser, and knows what the guy is capable of. Joe wants Fraser gone and away from his mother Sandy." 

"I’ve got tons of scripts. And they’re full of lies, betrayal and double-bluffs. To sum it all up, it’s carnage." 

Monday 7th: 

  • Trevor sits at Joe’s bedside to keep watch. Suddenly Joe grabs Trevor’s arm and asks for help, and Trevor is left intrigued when Joe asks if he can ‘take care’ of Fraser.

  • Mercedes tells Lindsey to go for it with Freddie if it’s what she really wants.

  • Sienna finds out that Maxine is pregnant when she answers the phone to the abortion clinic. Sienna questions who the father is and Maxine worries that it might be the guy from the club, who Patrick lied about seeing her with.

  • Sonny is determined to find out the truth about Katy’s death. He tells Lindsey that he’s expecting Katy’s post-mortem results soon and if there’s anything she thinks she could have overlooked, she’d be wise to flag it up now.

  • The Roscoes, Diane, Tony, Finn, Esther, George and Blessing all gather as the hearse pulls into the village. Diane spots Sinead, heartbroken and ready to say goodbye to her baby. However, Diane tells Sinead that she’s not welcome at the church. Sinead chases after the hearse but is stopped by Sonny, who hands her Katy’s post-mortem results. 
  • Grace leaves Trevor astounded by telling him that she wants Fraser dead. 

Friday 11th: 

  • Diane stands at the front of the church to say a few words at Katy’s funeral, but is interrupted by a grief stricken Sinead. 
  • Will Grace still be intent on following through with her evil plan? 
  • Leela realises that Tegan knows who the driver was and jumps to the conclusion that Tegan is protecting Ste. 
  • Ste is gutted to realise that he’s receiving the full brunt of Fraser’s lies. 

Hollyoaks star Ayden Callaghan has revealed that his character Joe Roscoe will soon try to form a surprising alliance with Trevor Royle. 

Joe has been in a coma since Trevor’s girlfriend Grace Black tried to kill him in January, but next month he finally regains consciousness in hospital. 

Viewers will see that Joe is still physically weakened from his injuries. Blaming Grace’s father Fraser for his condition, he decides to team up with Trevor (Greg Wood) to deal with the village’s head gangster once and for all. 

Callaghan told All About Soap: “It’s kind of like saying - my enemy’s enemy is my friend. All Joe’s chips are in and as far as he’s concerned, it’s do or die. He doesn’t have a lot of options left at this time.”

"He takes a big gamble to form an alliance with Trevor to get rid of their mutual problem - Fraser - because Joe knows full well that in his current state he’s not going to be able to do it on his own." 

On how Trevor responds, the actor added: “I can’t possibly reveal that! He and Joe have a heart-to-heart, and I’m not going to give away too much, but Trevor fills in a good number of blanks for Joe. He certainly sets up other problems he has to deal with emotionally and physically.” 

Some of Trevor’s revelations include details of the lies that Freddie has been telling Joe’s fiancée Lindsey Butterfield and the rest of his family since his disappearance. However, Joe decides to avoid an immediate confrontation with his brother.

Callaghan added: “He’s more about keeping his friends close and his enemies closer at this stage. Lindsey is the love of Joe’s life. And a lot of the stuff that has happened while he’s been in a coma is going to hit him further down the line.”

"Joe needs to get rid of Fraser - that’s his immediate concern. Maybe his issues with Lindsey and Freddie, and Grace and Trevor, will take a back seat - but none of those are forgotten, don’t worry."

Joe’s fury over Fraser could make him one of the prime suspects when the villain is killed in mysterious circumstances next month. 

Hollyoaks actor Keith Rice has said that he would like to see his character Finn O’Connor receive professional help after he gets his comeuppance. 

Finn is currently at the centre of a long-running storyline as he is still trying to cover his tracks after raping his teacher John Paul McQueen in January. 

While Finn has so far managed to avoid punishment for his crime, Rice told Unreality TV: “Finn is going to get his comeuppance, and that is one of the things that we absolutely stress.” 

On where the story could go afterwards, he continued: “If what he did was to come out and he ends up going to a youth offenders or something like that, I would love to see him explored in a way that delves into why he is like the way he is.” 

"I would love to film scenes with Finn and a psychiatrist trying to explore what goes on in Finn’s mind, and touch on what goes on in a teenager’s mind in general. I would love to see someone professional trying to get through to Finn to see if there was any sort of hope left for him." 

Rice added: “But of course above all I want John Paul to get justice, and Finn to get his comeuppance, but it would be great for the storyline to carry on from there.” 

Viewers have seen John Paul’s life crumble in the aftermath of Finn’s attack, culminating in him being arrested and charged for punching Robbie Roscoe (Charlie Wernham).

Last week, Robbie tried to clear the schoolteacher’s name but was thwarted when Finn stayed one step ahead, which led to John Paul (James Sutton) receiving a six-month jail sentence. 

John Paul will next appear on screen on April 4, when Sam Lomax visits him in prison after becoming suspicious over his affair with her husband Danny.
