I’m very excited to have been working with Hollyoaks.
It’s been pretty much exactly a year since my amazing agent first floated the possibility of maybe doing some bits with them, and now – after a rigorous trial process, a commission, several drafts and a lot of waiting – the TX date is here.
It was a show I was obsessed with during the John Paul/Craig years and have had an eye on ever since. I’ve been watching it relentlessly for the last year and it’s on cracking form at the moment (hiya, BAFTA nom) so it’s a big big big privilege to be on board, and I’ve really enjoyed it.
My first episode is on tonight (April 18) at 7pm on E4, and will air on Channel 4 tomorrow (April 19) at 6:30pm. It’ll be on-demand on All4 after the latter broadcast.
The super nifty thing about this is not only the chance to be part of a British institution, but also the fact that this is my first ever TV writing credit.
While I pinch myself, enjoy the episode.
