Gregory Finnegan is "fearing the worst" after his cat went missing.

The "Hollyoaks" actor - who plays James Nightingale in the Channel 4 soap - took to Instagram to reveal his beloved four-legged friend left his house over the weekend and hasn't been seen since.

He wrote: "This old timer wandered out of the house at the weekend and hasn't been seen since. Fearing the worst (sic)"

The 38-year-old actor's co-star Anna Passey (Sienna Blake) sympathised with the star about his missing moggy.

She wrote: "Oh no!"

Several of Gregory's fans were quick to offer him advice about his lost love, with one supporter suggesting he empties the contents of this vacuum cleaner into his garden to help his cat find their home again.

They wrote: "Not sure if anyone else has mentioned but empty your hoover contents into your garden somewhere as well as leaving his litter tray outside. If he's a little lost he will be able to smell his scent. Our cat disappeared for 3 weeks once, strolled back at 5am one morning looking for his breakfast. They do make you worry!! (sic)"

Another fan also offered Gregory hope by revealing their own cat went missing for three weeks before returning.

They posted: "Fingers crossed, moggies have a habit of wandering off, my boy went for 3 weeks before he came home one day. (sic)"

Someone else shared: "My little auld man did the same , he buggered off for 2.5 weeks I had just accepted he had taken himself off to hide and pass away as they do. Then I left windows open at night and he was moaning at the window randomly. Fingers crossed same happens ! (sic)"

But the "Oaks" actor isn't the only soap star to have his cat go missing.

In 2017, "Emmerdale" actress Samantha Giles (Bernice Blackstock) appealed to the Twittersphere to share a poster about her lost ginger moggy Bob, and he later returned after six days away.

She was also advised to empty her vacuum cleaner bag along her path.

After his safe return, she said: "I was told by a woman from a lost cat Facebook page that you can empty the hoover bag down your path and cats can pick up the scent.

"She also told me that if you use diluted urine and do a trail around the streets with that, it can also help cats pick up the smell of their home. You'd do anything wouldn't you to get them back."
