Former Hollyoaks actor, Jamie Lomas, is to film a guest appearance on the BBC daytime soap Doctors this week.
The star, who is married to Coronation Street actress Kym Marsh, is best known for his role on Hollyoaks as the villainous club owner, Warren Fox.
According to Digital Spy, the actor will make his Doctors debut in August, playing a man called Steve who has a difficult relationship with his son.
Lomas said of his new role:
“My character is called Steve and he has a 15-year old son. Steve’s a bit of a bloke, whereas his son is the complete opposite and they just don’t click as father and son.
“Steve is trying to make him into something that he isn’t and Olly, his boy, is trying to be like his dad – but he can’t. He tries to live up to his dad’s expectations, but it’s never going to happen.”
On leaving Hollyoaks last year, he continued:
“I left about 15 months ago, and I still get messages on Twitter saying, ‘Please come back’. It’s really flattering to have played a character that people love and still talk about.
“I’ve just come back from LA where I was for two months, and have got a nice agent over there who’s putting me up for some projects. I’m just auditioning and putting myself out there and would love to make it over there.
“It’s tough. Being on Hollyoaks for such a long time, people see you as that character. Coming into a great show like Doctors with a brilliant cast is fantastic.”
Since leaving Hollyoaks Lomas, whose character was involved with Mitzeee Minniver (Rachel Shenton) has attempted to find work over in America, with no luck, and has also been caught up in a string of controversies involving other women, causing much speculation about his relationship with Marsh.
Doctors will air Lomas’ guest appearance on Tuesday, August 27.
