Share article:

Will Mellor could be set for a sensational return to "Hollyoaks" to mark the soap's 25th anniversary next year.

Will played beloved character Jambo Bolton from when the Channel Four show launched in 1995 until 1998, making a brief return in 2004, and now "Hollyoaks" boss Bryan Kirkwood has revealed he wants him back for the landmark celebrations in 2020.

Bryan is also keen on getting Terri Dwyer back on the programme as Ruth Osbourne - the character she has played for three stints with the last one coming in 2008 - as well as some other familiar faces from the "very early days" of the show.

In an interview with The Sun Online, he spilled: "We've got John Paul McQueen and Warren Fox returning with amazing James Sutton and Jamie Lomas arriving.

"They're on screen in January which sets off the 25th year really nicely. We are talking about going further back in time to the very early days of the show [for returns] as we approach the 25th birthday in October, but there's nothing confirmed yet."

Teasing the exciting storyline, Bryan said: "That's one of the best long-running tensions in the show, Sienna and her missing twins. Warren's off somewhere in the world with her twins.

"We kind of racked our brains as to why Warren would ever lay himself open to be found by Sienna. But we think we've come up with a very good reason why Warren and the twins and Sienna meet again and that will explode in January."
