Oh my goodness, if the current Riley/Mercedes/Mitzeee storyline in Hollyoaks wasn’t juicy enough already, how about throwing in a surprise return from Silas Blissett into the mix?
Reports on today’s Digital Spy website have shown pictures of actor Jeff Rawle, who left the soap in November last year after his character was arrested for his long and shocking crime spree, back on the set of the hit Channel4 teen drama, Hollyoaks, with what looked like a script in his hands!
Silas, whose crimes included holding a pregnant Mercedes (Jennifer Metcalfe), hostage whilst carrying his grandson Riley’s (Rob Norbury) baby, has recently been in the forefront of everyone’s minds as his pending court case was cancelled due to the judge declaring him insane, but whilst everyone seemed pretty upset at his lack of jail time, none of them could ever have prepared for his village return!
But return it seems he will, if the pictures are any indication of things to come.
Not only can Rawle be seen reading an apparent script on the Liverpool soap set, but the website also published pictures of the cast of Hollyoaks out on the town a few nights before with Rawley, in what looked like a celebration of his reinstatement.
If this is the case, we can only wonder what the likes of Mercy and Lynsey (Karen Hassan) will make of it, with both girls having trouble to come to terms with just the fact that he wont stand trial, not to mention how Riley will feel having just refurbished the pub to erase any last memory of his dastardly grandfather.
What do you think would be a great storyline to bring back Silas?

Hollyoaks can be seen week nights at 6.30pm on Channel4/Channel4 HD.
