Hollyoaks have 'no plans' to bring Sol Patrick back

Share article:

"Hollyoaks" bosses have no "plans" to bring Paul Danan's character Sol Patrick back to the show.

The 39-year-old actor - who played the troublesome teenager from 1997 until 2001 - excited fans earlier this week when he said he had been in talks with producers about making a return to the soap over the next coming months, but it looks like his dreams of reprising his alter ego are about to be shattered as scriptwriters have no desire to give him a comeback storyline.

A representative for the Channel 4 show exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "There are no current plans for the character of Sol Patrick to return to "Hollyoaks"."

However, Paul - whose alter ego fled the town of Cheshire to escape his prostitute girlfriend Jess" pimp - probably won't be too bothered as he has his sights set on another soap anyway.

He said recently: "I would like to go back and do a stint on "Hollyoaks". Or a bit of "EastEnders" would be good. I've been speaking to "Hollyoaks" and they would love me to come back.

"They're just sorting a storyline for Sol to return. It would be nice.

"Gary Lucy and Sarah Dunn have gone back so I don't know why Sol can't do a little few months. I'm not desperate to do it because it's been it, seen it, done it. So if it happens, it happens."

After leaving "Hollyoaks" 16 years ago, Paul made appearances on various other shows including "The Kevin Bishop Show" and "Test Drive My Girlfriend".

Last month, Paul revealed he's been working on a new BBC sitcom based around Channel 4's 90s hit Desmond's".

He said: "It's been a whirlwind. I've got a sitcom coming out - it will be a modern-day Desmond's set in a London barber's shop.

"I'm really excited as acting is my passion and that's what I want to be known for. I've had loads of messages of support from younger viewers who didn't know who I was before."

Paul gave no further details about the planned show, so it is unknown as of the time of writing when the programme is set to air.

Meanwhile, Paul - who was known for being one of the first "Love Island" contestants in 2005 and 2006 - recently thanked "Celebrity Big Brother" for his time on the show last month, as he believes the opportunity has given him a "second chance" at his career.

He said: "Thank you "Big Brother" for having me. You've given me a second chance."
