Hollyoaks actor Keiron Richardson says the new show boss is planning massive changes which will recapture an audience who might have ‘got bored with the show’.

Keiron, who was also a Dancing on Ice finalist in March, said new executive producer Paul Marquess was taking the show in a whole new direction.

Whatsontv.co.uk asked Keiron at the British Soap Awards for details of the storylines, but he said: “[I can’t tell] because he’d shoot me. But the storyline, from what he’s said about it, will be massive for the show – in a good way – and bring back a lot of the audience that might have fizzled out and got bored with the show, keep it fresh with lots of new characters.

“It’s a storyline that’s very different from anything I’ve ever done before.”
