Actor Barry Sloane has revealed that Hollyoaks fans haven’t seen the last of evil Niall Rafferty – he’ll be back in a chilling late-night episode.

Barry, who played Myra McQueen’s estranged son Niall, was last seen in the Channel 4 soap kidnapping the McQueen family, and holding them hostage in a church, which he’d decked out with explosives.

Speaking ahead of the National Television Awards 2008 on Wednesday night, where he had been nominated for Most Popular Newcomer, Barry said: “I’ve had the best year of my life playing that character but there will be a bit more to see of Niall before the year’s out.

“Every good baddie comes back at least one more time.”

And he hinted at a few things that fans could expect to see in the special late-night edition of Hollyoaks in a few weeks’ time.

He said: “Niall’s got a few things to sort out with Steph, so he goes off to try and find Steph and it all goes a bit evil as it does with Niall.

“There are a few kidnaps culminating in a cliff-top stunt, there’s a tussle and someone goes…”

Hollyoaks: Late Night is due to air for one week at the end of November on Channel 4.
