A Hollywood dancer voted ''Sexiest Dancer in The World'' last year is set to join the cast of Hollyoaks as a priest! Richard Windsor who rose to fame last year in Streetdance 3D is set to play Father Francis, a priest who will arrive in Chester in July.
Father Francis will arrive in early July to the delight of Carmel Mc Queen (Gemma Merna) who can't believe her eyes when sexy, rugged and religious Francis arrives. Believing that he is here to test her faith however, she tries to resist temptation but will it be too much to handle, will Carmel take a bite from the forbidden fruit?
Speaking of his casting, Windsor commented: ''I didn't know what to expect but I turned up on my first day to a very warm welcome. The entire cast and crew are so friendly and supportive. Father Francis is in safe hands...!''
Richard played Tomas in the British dance film last year and has also performed in Broadway working with award winning choreographer Matthew Bourne in performances of Edward Scissorhands and Swan Lake. Meanwhile, he was voted ''Sexiest Dancer In The World'' by the famous Elle magazine.
Richard will appear on screen on Monday 4th July at 6:30pm on Channel 4.
