Jamie Lomas has already landed a new role after leaving Hollyoaks.

The 29-year-old actor, who signed off as gangster Warren Fox in the soap last week, told Digital Spy about his latest project – a film called Threads – but admitted he didn’t know what the long-term future held for him.

He said: “I’m shooting a short film the first week in June but to be honest, since I left, I’ve not stopped doing press so I haven’t had a chance to think about it!”

He continued: “It’s a short film based in Sheffield – so I get to do an accent.

“It’s about a character who’s part of a far-right party. He had an affair with a black lady when he was younger and they had a son who he wanted nothing to do with.

“It’s about his son coming back all these years later and he’s still involved with the same far-right party and they’re trying to connect with each other but he’s gone that far that he can’t.”
