Firstly I want to apologise for not updating and being so quiet on here…I have had a lot going on.
Secondly, due to the fact that I have so much going on at the moment, and I’m only going to get busier, I have made the hard decision to stop doing this blog as I have no time for it anymore. However, I am very proud of what this blog has done, and the followers it’s gained, so I don’t want to have to just stop it. Instead I was hoping someone may want to step forward and take over as this blog and twitter site has gained so many followers it would be a shame to stop it altogether.
If anyone is willing to take over the running of the blog then please let me know in the ‘ask me anything’ tab, but please don’t post under anon as I won’t be able to reply to you otherwise.
The Lomax family fearful over Peri’s wellbeing on Hollyoaks next week after Sienna Blake does a sudden disappearing act with the schoolgirl.
Sienna (Anna Passey) lures Peri away from her family by giving her tickets for her favourite band, who are playing in Manchester that night.
Still unaware that Sienna thinks she is her real mum, Peri (Ruby O’Donnell) accepts the kind offer and is excited about the evening ahead.
However, as they leave for the concert, it seems that Sienna has another trick up her sleeve when she takes their passports with her…
Later, Sam panics when she realises that her daughter is missing, but Peri is still oblivious to Sienna’s ulterior motive when she gets a chance to meet her idols.
With the Lomaxes hot on their heels, will Sienna and Peri end up leaving the village for good?
Hollyoaks airs these scenes on Thursday, May 15 at 6.30pm on Channel 4.
- Weee, just wanna say I love the new layout girl. Keep doing what you do, you’re awesome (:
Aww thank you :)
- I love the new design, great job.
Thank you. I’m glad people are liking it as it took a while to get organised again.
- Can you do more Steal Their Styles please.
Yes, I’m hoping to start getting them up and running again, sooner rather than later.
- Esther has not been in the show for ages, she is still in it right??? great blog x
Thanks, yes she is still in it, just not had any screen time for a while.
- Which character would you be most upset about leaving?
Tricky question, I change my mind so much about who’s my favourite. I think I would be sad to see Darren/ Dodger/ Dirk/ Dennis leave, as they add a bit of comedy and tongue-in-cheek moments, as well as the more serious stuff. Also Maxine, because Nikki Sanderson’s acting has just been brilliant and I’m really enjoying her storyline right now.
- Am I the only one disliking Lindsey more and more?
Your probably not the only one. I think people, including myself, have maybe started to go off her character at the moment.
- Who in your opinion deserves more screen time?
That’s a hard question to answer, because I like seeing different characters at different times, depending on their storyline. Although generally I like anything to do with the Osbornes as a family. It would be nice to see some Dodger/Darren scenes again as well.
- If you could nominate any one female and male for best actress and actor who would it be?
I think currently I would have to say Nikki Sanderson who plays Maxine for best actress as she has been fantastic portraying the abuse storyline. And for best actor, either Jeremy Sheffield who plays Patrick or James Sutton.
- Are there any truth to the rumours that Amy Barnes is returning to the hollyoaks village?
I haven’t heard any of the rumours, or of her returning so I honestly don’t know.
- I think that Leila is Peri’s birth mother and thats the reason she wouldn’t go to the hospital until she saw how Sinead was fighting for her daughter, and the look she had when Peri said to her “never have children”…
Quite a few people seem to have drawn that conclusion, I’m not convinced, but it’s a good theory.
- Do you think Finn is a good villain.
I haven’t really warmed to Finn as a character in general, maybe that’s the point though! But I find I’m not really enjoying seeing him on screen that much at the moment, I think maybe it’s because it feels more of a teenager trying to play the hard man that him actually being an evil character if that makes sense.
- Is Patrick leaving Hollyoaks?
I don’t honestly know, I haven’t heard anything to suggest he is.
- Love your blog. When was the last time the Osbornes were on screen i.e Esther and Darren.
I’m not 100 per cent sure, as I did miss a week a couple of weeks ago, but I think they haven’t really had any screen time for a couple of weeks at least. Hopefully they’ll be some more stuff coming up with the Osbornes soon.
- Hi, I’ve been on holiday and trying to catch up … Am I right that Fraiser’s car was involved in an accident? and there was a body in the car boot? who was driving? Thankyou :-)
Yes, Fraser was driving but no one saw him driving it. Just his car speeding off. Fraser later got Ste to burn it.
- What do you think will happen with the maxine/patrick storyline? Because I thinks it dragging abit now, I have a feeling maxine might miscarry.
I think things are beginning to slowly unravel for Patrick. Now that Dennis knows, things are only going to start to unravel from there. If Patrick keeps abusing her the way he is doing, then it’s possible she could miscarry.
Hollyoaks star Anna Passey has said that the shift in viewers’ reactions to her character Sienna has been “amazing”.
Passey, who plays troubled Sienna Blake, revealed that despite Sienna’s scheming past, fans now feel sorry for her and want her to be happy.
Upcoming scenes will see Sienna return to her old tricks as she starts targeting the Lomax family, following her belief that Peri is her long-lost daughter.
Speaking to Inside Soap, the actress said: “Viewers are desperate for Sienna to find her daughter. They want Peri to be Sienna’s kid and they want to see her happy.”
"It has been amazing to watch the reaction turn from despising Sienna to feeling sorry for her. I never believed that shift was possible after all the hideous things Sienna has done."
Passey, who has played Sienna since 2012, admitted that people used to be so wary of her alter-ego that they would cross the road to get away from her.
"It was a nightmare when I first joined Hollyoaks - strangers would cross the street to get away from me!”
"Whenever I take my 5-year old nephew Jack anywhere, you can see people thinking that I’ve stolen him. But when I chat to anyone, they usually say, ‘Oh, you’re so nice in real life’. It’s a relief!"
Hollyoaks bosses have confirmed that they are on the hunt for new female acting talent.
A public casting call was put out by the soap’s production company Lime Pictures (April 28), hinting that a number of new girls will be arriving in the village later this year.
While little is known about the characters that show producers have in mind, the newcomers have already been specified as Northern characters.
The casting call reads: “Hollyoaks are looking for exciting Northern actresses aged 17 to 25 to join their cast.”
"The characters will be feisty and sparkly with Northern accents."
Hollyoaks star Jorgie Porter has announced that she is returning to the show.
The actress, who plays Theresa McQueen, will be back on screen later this year after just a few months away from the Channel 4 soap.
Theresa is currently in prison after finally being caught out as the culprit behind Calvin Valentine’s 2010 murder. Her new storyline is expected to feature more twists and turns in the build-up to her trial.
Porter commented: “I am excited to be returning. Theresa is awaiting trial but has some serious unfinished business before then so I am thrilled to be able to come back and finish what we started.”
A show statement added: “Theresa is on a mission and she’s got a secret that’s going to shock a lot of people around the village.”
Porter quit Hollyoaks last October, but at the time a show source told Digital Spy that she was expected to return following a break.
The 26-year-old later clarified that she left the show so she could fully focus on the All-Star series of ITV’s Dancing On Ice, only to be left stunned when she was voted out the first week.
She told Digital Spy last month: "I thought for Dancing on Ice I’d need time out for it, but I didn’t. When I did it two years ago I was absolutely exhausted because I was doing Hollyoaks, Hollyoaks Later and the Dancing on Ice tour.”
"I even had to cancel a few of the tour dates because I fell asleep, my body was just exhausted, so I thought it would be a good idea to concentrate on it."
Porter has played Theresa since 2008.
Hollyoaks bosses have cast actor Cameron Moore as a major new regular for the soap.
The 27 year-old’s character, also called Cameron, will arrive on screen in June and immediately shake up life in the village.
Cameron’s initial storyline will see him become a love interest for firefighter Leela Lomax (Kirsty-Leigh Porter). This makes him a rival for charmer Ziggy Roscoe (Fabrizio Santino), who also has feelings for Leela.
The newcomer is originally from Scotland, but his presence in Chester may not be good news for everyone as he has recently spent time in prison.
While Cameron won’t be a new villain in the village, viewers will discover that he has a dark and complex past.
A Hollyoaks source explained: “Cameron comes into Hollyoaks as a stranger with a dangerous past that will have wide-ranging implications for many characters in the village.”
"He grew up near Edinburgh but after spending time in prison found his way to Hollyoaks. What has drawn him to the village is a mystery to most, but not all of the residents."
Moore is also originally from Scotland but grew up in Gloucestershire.
The actor’s previous credits include a role in E4’s My Mad Fat Teenage Diary, as well as parts in short films and theatre productions.
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.”
