Hollyoaks favourites Jamie Lomas and Chris Fountain are leaving the soap, it has been confirmed.
And it looks like the pair – who play Warren Fox and Justin Burton respectively – will be going down in a blaze of glory, when their final scenes are shown on Channel 4 on Friday May 29.
Things come to a head when an old enemy of Warren’s returns to the village with a score to settle. And when Justin gets involved, events soon reach boiling point.
Jamie said: “I’ve had a fantastic three years at Hollyoaks but having fully explored the character I felt the time was right for me to move on. I’ve enjoyed being part of the Hollyoaks cast where I’ve made some brilliant friends and worked with some great people.
“I’m delighted to be going out as part of such a dramatic storyline, my final scenes are some of the most dramatic I’ve ever filmed and I’m sure viewers will be hooked!
Chris added: “I’ve been at Hollyoaks for five years now and I’ve enjoyed exploring and playing the many different sides of Justin Burton, he’s been a fantastic character to play and so much has happened to him. I’m actually surprised he’s lasted this long!
“I’ll be sad to leave as I’ve had some great times and gained a lot of good friends at work but I personally feel that it’s the right time for me, and Justin, to move on.”
Watch Jamie and Chris’s final scenes on Friday May 29 at 6.30pm on Channel 4.
