Hollyoaks have confirmed this afternoon that Jonny Clarke is returning to play rogue Bart McQueen after four years away.
Bart will arrive in the village with Nana McQueen for Celine’s funeral, but he also holds a secret with him that could stir some villagers.
Bart’s most memorable storylines include his relationships with Sinead O’Connor and Jasmine Costello, growing cannabis in the McQueen’s attic and his involvement with the iconic bus crash at the weddings of Ste, Doug, Cindy and Tony.
He left Hollyoaks in 2014 after he and Joel’s plan to scam Brendan Brady went wrong and they both fled the village just before the Irishman could catch them.
Talking about his return, Jonny said: “I’m so happy to be back at Hollyoaks.
“I can’t wait for people to see the way Bart has changed since the last time he was in the village. He’s definitely going to ruffle a few feathers with a sinister secret! ”
