Hollyoaks’ Tom Cunningham is to star in his own spin-off show.

The six-part mini-series, called Tom’s Life, will star Ellis Hollins as the teenager and launch on Channel 4’s on-demand service 4oD tonight (October 27).

Tom’s Life will see the student try to reunite Nancy (Jessica Fox) and Darren Osborne (Ashley Taylor Dawson) following their marriage breakdown after they were caught up in Sienna Blake’s web of deceit.

The episodes will also show Tom, who joined the Channel 4 soap in 1999, attempting to join the basketball team and calling on his girlfriend Peri Lomax (Ruby O’Donnell) to help out.

The first episode of Tom’s Live will screen on the 4oD site at 6.45pm.
