James Sutton is set to return to "Hollyoaks" next week.

The 36-year-old actor - who left the Channel 4 soap in 2017 after two spells as John Paul McQueen - is said to be making a comeback for a guest appearance.

As revealed by Digital Spy, soap bosses are bringing John Paul back for Sally St Claire (Annie Wallace) and Myra McQueen's (Nicole Barber-Lane) wedding day.

The soon-to-be married couple are his biological parent after a fling years ago, before Sally transitioned, and James will be reprising his role for a one-off return so his alter ego can celebrate the special occasion.

He previously played the role between 2006 and 2009, before returning in 2012 after a stint on "Emmerdale" as Ryan Lamb.

Although he's since moved into working in the theatre, James has remained proud of his soap roots, and he has dismissed any acting industry "snobbery" about starring in the serial shows.

He previously said: "Some soap actors have been doing their roles for years. There is a reason for that - they are the best in the business, they are professionals. They turn up day after day, week after week."

Meanwhile, in September last year James tied the knot with partner Rachael Collin at Pennard House in Shepton Mallet, south west England.

Taking to Twitter, he wrote at the time: "Thankyou to everyone who made the trip down to Glastonbury and made our day so special. We love you all.

"I've had the best weekend of my life. Getting married is f***ing ace. (sic)"
