Here’s the first look at Hollyoaks’ new family the Roscoes, who are destined to cause trouble in the village.

The new family features five boys and will be headed up by matriarch Sandy Roscoe, played by Gillian Taylforth. The Roscoe clan will debut on Hollyoaks on Channel 4 on Thursday, May 23.



Viewers have already seen young twin, trouble-maker Robbie Roscoe make his mark on the village, causing trouble at his college, while older brother Freddie has also made an appearance in Hollyoaks, flirting with Maxine. But it’s not until later in May when all five brothers will be reunited.



Single mum Sandy has a tough task, holding down her own job as a district nurse, while trying to keep control of her five sons and ensuring they keep the family business, Roscoe’s Motor Maintenance, running.



Gillian, who played Kathy Beale in EastEnders for 15 years, said: “Everyone at Hollyoaks has made all the Roscoe family members feel very welcome and I am really looking forward to the viewers seeing us all on screen for the first time, there is never a dull moment when the Roscoes are around!”
