Hollyoaks will attempt a soap first next week with an episode that flashes forward to the future.

On Monday, the Channel 4 soap will air scenes from May 2010, which show Calvin Valentine (Ricky Whittle) and Carmel McQueen (Gemma Merna) tying the knot for the second time.

The pair split after Calvin got mixed up in drug dealing and was duped into thinking he was responsible for the death of Nige Foster (Sam Townend).

Ever since their break-up, many Hollyoaks fans have been longing for the estranged couple to reunite.

It is not the first time the teen show has played with time. Earlier this year, it had a ‘non-linear week’ in which events were not played out chronologically.

Meanwhile, Ricky Whittle is demonstrating another talent when he goes up against BBC sports presenter Chris Hollins in the Strictly Come Dancing final this weekend.
