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.

"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.
