Former Hollyoaks stars Matt Littler and Darren Jeffries are making a pilot for their own show, which they hope will screen on Channel 4.

The friends who starred as Max and OB in Hollyoaks told whatsontv.co.uk at the British Soap Awards that the programme was based around their hobby, but then they clammed up…

Darren said: “We had the idea two years ago, it’s been six months planning it and we start shooting it next week. It’s basically… Well we don’t want to say yet, but it’s really exciting.

“It’s a show that isn’t on TV at the moment, there’s nothing on TV like it. TV’s crying out for it!”
