With all the doom and gloom that soaps usually bring this time of year, the cast of Hollyoaks have treated us to a little Yule-tide cheer as they present this hilarious rendition of the 12 days of Christmas!
The likes of Kieron Richardson (Ste Hay), Claire Cooper (Jacqui McQueen), Gemma Merna (Carmel McQueen) Stephanie Waring (Cindy Hutchinson), Emmett Scanlan (Brendan Brady), PJ Brennan (Doug Carter) and Bianca Hendrickse-Spendlove (Texas Longford) – who are currently in America we might add, are among those who feature in this comical festive cheer!

Hollyoaks fans all knew it was only a matter of time before Brendan Brady (Emmett J Scanalan) cottoned on to ex boyfriend, Ste Hay‘s (Keiron Richardson) new romance with business partner, Doug Carter (PJ Brennan), but I don’t think his reaction is what everyone would have been expecting.
Fans of the hit Channel4 soap will know how the money raised to secure the deposit for Dog and Ste’s new business, the Delli, came from Brendan without Ste’s knowledge, as a way to keep a hold of his former love.

Hollyoaks star PJ Brennan has been telling Soaplife how his character’s desperate frame of mind leads to a heavenly vision in the form of his former co-star, Carley Stenson as Steph Roach.
As fans of the show will know, on Boxing Day, Doug’s going to reach rock bottom, having spent Christmas alone and miserable. So, he’ll decide to end it all by throwing himself off a bridge.
However, when he closes his eyes before taking the fatal jump, he’s astonished to find he’s back in his flat, and confronted by angel Steph.
When asked why Doug’s feeling so low, PJ said, “It’s been building up since Silas killed his girlfriend Becks… Read more & comment »
Hollyoaks star Emmett J Scanlan has told What’s On TV magazine that in his new role as movie baddie Charlie Casanova, his character is so wicked, he makes ‘Oaks character Brendan Brady, “look like a pussycat.”
Charlie Casanova is a crime thriller which Emmett starred in before he landed the role on Hollyoaks, but he’s instantly recongnisable in the film thanks to his now trademark moustache!
Of the film and his role as Charlie, Emmett said, “It makes Brendan Brady look like a pussycat… Read more & comment »
As Brendan Brady, Emmett J Scanlan is often a scary figure, and his now trademark moustache only adds to his aura of dangerousness…
And while speaking to MSN at the recent V Festival, Emmett revealed more about his upper lip wear, saying, “It was a character choice. I asked if I could grow a ‘tache for this particular character.
“They went ahead with it, but I didn’t know it would get so much recognition.
“It gets recognised more than I do – it needs its own credit.
“I grew it for my dad. He had a brilliant 70s ‘tache when he got married and he looked very Magnum PI – I look very YMCA”.
But when asked if he would he ever shave it off, Emmett replied, “I would shave it off. Maybe for the next character or for charity…
“Or if they don’t need me for continuity in the show. I forget what my upper lip looks like, though!”
Well, he won’t be shaving it off just yet, and we’ll be seeing a lot of Brendan and that muzzy in forthcoming episodes as Brendan finds himself increasingly embroiled in evil Silas’s mind games! Read more & comment »
