    Corrie's Anthony Cotton teases ‘big storyline’ in future

    Despite spending the last 18 years on the soap, Antony Cotton said he is still having the time of his life.

    He said: “Corrie is like a giant family. It feels nice to go to work with people that you know and love. I’ve known a lot of them for the past 18 years. I adore people there like they’re my own family. For the past 19 years, I’ve never wanted to say goodbye to that.”

    Corrie bosses have been forced to scrap a string of storylines due to coronavirus. But now restrictions for TV shows have eased, there are plans to finally get them done.

    Antony concluded: “There are stories that we tried to do, but in the end, we couldn’t because of the pandemic. So now they will happen over the next year.

    “I have a very big, dramatic storyline that I am hoping we can now pick up and do properly. We are getting back into the swing of things now, so I am looking forward to the next year.

    “I am hoping 12 months from now things will be completely back to normal.”

    Sarah Jayne Dunn slams Hollyoaks for ‘judging her’ over OnlyFans

    SARAH Jayne Dunn has slammed Hollyoaks for "judging her" over OnlyFans and said she "had to" strip off for the soap's sexy shoots.

    Last week The Sun revealed that the actress was axed from her role on the Channel 4 soap after refusing to quit stripping on the controversial 18+ network.

    When asked if she felt "morally judged" by Hollyoaks on BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour earlier today, Sarah said: "I do feel judged, definitely.

    "And I feel disappointed. I feel like I've been reprimanded for something I've been contractually bound to do, by the show, for most of my career.

    "I'm actually not doing anything different to what I've been doing for as long as Instagram has been a thing."

    "My mum had breast cancer at 41, and her sister at 39 – so many people in my family, in fact. So I don't really leave any time before I check these things."

    She went on: "I was diagnosed on the thirteenth of October with DCIS, which is Ductal carcinoma in situ.

    "It basically means that cells have turned cancerous within the milk ducts."

    The star added: "We're being really optimistic, and positive, and really lucky that we've caught it as early as we have. I don't know if lucky is the right word, but that's how I feel."

    He added: "From the HOP perspective, Ben has signed off all of the risk assessments so that’s the next person in the firing line.

    "There’s a pecking order for who he’s going to go for first. Obviously, he’s at the very back of that queue.

    Sarah Jayne Dunn receiving lots of support from Hollyoaks fans

    The Sun revealed that the Mandy Richardson actress, 40, was dismissed from her £120k a year role after refusing to quit stripping on the X-rated OnlyFans website.

    Sarah has been stripping off online for several weeks and has received several warnings off bosses over her conduct because of the show’s young audience. The star refused to stop and has now now been asked to stand down from her role, that she first took on in 1996.

    But fans of the Channel 4 soap are fuming considering scenes on the show are just as racy as what can get posted on the controversial 18+ network.

    One wrote on Twitter: “Hollyoaks have hardly done youth friendly content outside watershed. Examples, the word b***h has been used in a derogatory term several times, there is literally a storyline with cameras in peris bedroom.”

    Another said: “@lgbthizzie @Hollyoaks they’re hypocritical! they’ve had multiple nude scenes with MEN, but as long as it’s a man it’s fine???? there’s some misogynistic behaviour happening with the bosses at lime .. someone needs their job role re-evaluate.”

    Denise Welch ‘removed from Hollyoaks set’ after testing positive for Covid

    DENISE Welch has revealed she was removed from the Hollyoaks set after testing positive for Covid.

    The 63-year-old, who plays Trish Minniver on the Channel 4 soap, slammed the “ridiculous” testing system after she received mixed results from her lateral flow and PCR.

    She tweeted:  “Just had covid. Nothing like the bronchitis I had recently which was most ill I’ve ever been. Lost taste & smell with both. At work 10 days ago. Was removed from set & they had me tested. LF & PCR taken at same time. LF was negative, PCR came back positive. Go figure.

    “By the way I’m not negating the danger of Covid in some people. I just lost my dad to pneumonia. All horrible virus’. But the testing is ridiculous. And to me all proves how pointless covid passports are.”

    The actress, who has been very vocal about being against Covid rules and vaccines for children, went on to claim: “The fact that these tests have not been stopped in nearly 2 yrs is unbelievable. In April 2020, my radiographer cousin told me that in her London hospital people were testing negative when their lungs clearly showed Covid. She was also told she couldn’t say that ‘publicly’.”

    Hollyoaks has confirmed that the set has remained open for filming to continue.

    Soap stars under ITV's strict ban over endorsing certain products

    ITV have banned anything that could bring the company into disrepute, including cosmetic surgery and diet products and “adult entertainment.”

    The move allows cast members to post paid advertisements, with the producers’ blessing, in a bid to prevent cast members from quitting the shows because they make more money online.

    A TV insider said: “Stars like former Corrie actor Helen Flanagan are inundated with opportunities to promote products on platform including Instagram. And earnings can often dwarf any salary actors get paid on the soaps, meaning it can be more lucrative to  leave the shows to effectively sell goods.

    “This is simply a smart way to ensure they can still advertise products while remaining on the shows .But they spell out in black and white what’s deemed unacceptable – as previously it’s been a grey area.”

    Matthew Wolfenden & Isabel Hodgins' Emmerdale row (continued…)

    One insider said: “The cast had travelled to film what they were calling the ‘Summer Stunt’ — dramatic waterfall scenes that aired on October 19.

    “While they were on set a comment was made which unintentionally caused offence, and an argument broke out among some of the cast members.

    "This was a massive deal for all of them and obviously everyone was under pressure to make scenes work.

    “Emmerdale take these kind of ­allegations very seriously, and Matthew and Isabel did not film scenes while inquiries were made. It was not a decision they took lightly, as it had huge consequences for the team as they are massive characters. But the bosses felt it was a necessary step to take.

    “They investigated the matter fully and are now satisfied that no further action is necessary. The actors are really professional.”
