Former Coronation Street star Adam Rickitt has joined Hollyoaks as Nancy Osborne’s ex-boyfriend, Kyle.
Like the Chester favourite, Kyle is also living with MS and first appears in Hollyoaks when he bumps into Nancy at a support meeting where they reminisce over their times together and old feelings come back to the surface.
Could Kyle’s arrival throw a spanner in the works for Nancy and Darren’s relationship or could he have other connections in the village that lead to more problems?
Talking about his new role, Adam said, “I am really happy to be joining Hollyoaks. I’ve had a lot of friends work on the show throughout the years and they’ve all told me what an amazing place it is to work so it’s really good to be a part of such a welcoming crowd.
“The key interest for me was in the storylines lined up for Kyle. I think they are amazing, taking the character on a real journey and something I am really enjoying playing a part in. Fingers crossed the audience like the surprises as they keep coming…”
Adam will first appear on screen next month. For more Hollyoaks spoilers and soap news from Chester click here now.
