Stuart Manning is reportedly set to return to "Hollyoaks" after a decade away.

The 38-year-old actor played Russ Owen on the Channel 4 soap from 2004 until he quit in 2009, with his final storyline seeing him kidnap his baby boy Max and leave for France.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "It's been a while since he was last on set and he can't wait to be part of the show again ... The return of Russ Owen is set to send shockwaves through the village.

"The character will cause a lot of drama for some of the village regulars, including the McQueens."

Bosses are said to be "thrilled" that he has agreed to come back to the show following a series of secret meetings, and it appears viewers can expect more exciting returns in the future.
