Dancing on Ice star Kieron Richardson insists he is staying put in Hollyoaks and says he’s not ‘good enough’ to leave just yet.

The actor is juggling his role as Ste Hay with taking part in Dancing On Ice but says his stint in the reality show doesn’t mean he has any plans to say goodbye to the soap.

He explained: “I’m not leaving, I’m staying put – because I’m doing this everyone is writing on my Twitter page and texting me saying ‘does that mean you’re leaving Hollyoaks?’ but that’s not the case whatsoever.”

He added: “I’m doing this because it’s fun and exciting and I get paid but also because I want to do it… I still want to stay at Hollyoaks and progress in my career there, I don’t think I’m good enough to leave yet and get other things.

“Once I feel comfortable – or I get sacked – that’s when I leave!”

Kieron’s Hollyoaks co-star Ricky Whittle (Calvin Valentine), who took part in Strictly Come Dancing, recently announced he is leaving the soap.
