Hollyoaks to send cast to Ibiza for filming

Share article:

"Hollyoaks" bosses are set to send characters to Ibiza in a bid to "spice up" the soap.

Bosses of the Channel 4 soap are reportedly looking to send characters Holly and Tom Cunningham - played by Amanda Clapham and Ellis Hollins respectively - as well as Ellie Nightingale, played by Sophie Porley, out to the party island next month for scenes which will air in July.

A source said: "Trips abroad always result in the best storylines as the sun and booze are the perfect backdrop for explosive drama and new romances.

"They want more from the show - and bringing back "Hollyoaks" to Ibiza seems like the perfect fit."

The move comes as bosses reportedly want the soap to rival hit reality show "The Only Way Is Essex", despite being purely fictional.

The insider added to The Sun newspaper: "Bosses are hoping for the scenes to have a similar feel to "TOWIE" - but with the plot being purely fictional.

"There's set to be lots of drinking, swearing and sexual activity in the plot as producers really plan to spice things up."

The cast of the soap could even bump into "Made In Chelsea" stars such as Jamie Laing and Louise Thompson, as it was recently revealed the cast of the E4 show would also be heading off to the party island for filming.

A source said recently: ""Made In Chelsea" is going to get rough and ready this summer. Expect lots of drunk reality stars and big nights out.

"Producers have decided to take things down and notch and let the cast properly enjoy themselves. Expect the usual drama from the cast who can't wait to explore the white isle in Chelsea style."
