Linda Robson and Janet Street-Porter are to make cameos in "Hollyoaks".

The "Loose Women" panellists have confirmed they will make their debuts in the Channel 4 soap in November when play wedding guests at the nuptials of two unknown characters - and they revealed the big day will be "explosive".

Announcing their cameos on the ITV lunchtime show, Linda said: "We were wedding guests at "Hollyoaks". It was very explosive. I can't reveal anything else."

Janet added: "We do make an impact. We're featured."

"Birds of a Feather" actress Linda joked former "Celebrity MasterChef" star Janet was acting like a diva on the set by refusing to wear various accessories.

She said: "She was going all through the handbags going, "Is that designer? No, I'm not using that, I'm not wearing that." "

But Janet did manage to get into character, and was such a big fan of the fascinator her alter-ego had to wear that she wore it to lunch when the cameras were turned off.

She added: "I brought my own clothes but they came up with this fascinator, so I put it on my head and I wore it to lunch at the pub to get in character."

Linda and Janet will follow into the footsteps of the likes of Richard Arnold and Alan Carr after they recently made cameos in the soap.

Following his scene - in which the "Chatty Man" host was walking his two dogs Bev and Joyce in the village when he stopped to nose in on a dispute Yazz Maalik (Haiesha Mistry) was having with Tony Hutchinson (Nick Pickard) and Diane Hutchinson (Alex Fletcher) - he joked the part could land him a BAFTA.

He said: "I've had a great time. I can't wait for everyone to see my cameo.

"It's very good - it's got BAFTA written all over it ... maybe not."

Andrew Lloyd Webber, Nick Grimshaw, Eamonn Holmes, and The Saturdays have also made cameos in the soap, and Rick Astley is also set to make an appearance on the show later this year.
