Hello and welcome to another brilliant soap round-up courtesy of TellyMix! Today we're heading down under to Neighbours where there's a tragic off-screen death to rock Erinsborough, a new business is to be opened in Coronation Street and a Hollyoaks actress has revealed she's going nowhere. So it's time to start the Soap Round-Up for today!
First up, there's doom and gloom for the residents of Ramsay Street as Mark Brennan (Scott Mc Gregor) is to die whilst in witness protection. The cop has to leave Erinsborough later this year after he is involved in a police corruption case but just a few short weeks after his departure, lawyer Toadie Rebbechi (Ryan Maloney) is shocked to discover that he has been killed and has to break the news to his heartbroken girlfriend Kate Ramsay (Ashleigh Brewer).
Speaking to TV Week, Scott said: ''There have been plenty of other characters who've come back from the dead - but that's not to say I'd want to. if Brennan ever does pop up again, I'd like to be asked first for the role."
Now to something more light hearted in Weatherfield and hapless Julie Carp (Katy Cavanagh) is set to open her own shop in Weatherfield as she goes into business with her love interest Brian Packham (Peter Gunn) in opening a fruit and vegetable store after their relationship heats up!
According to The Sun, Julie and Brian open the shop in the unit which was home to Peacock's butchers until December when the tram crash killed the owner, squeaky voiced Ashley Peacock (Steven Arnold). Bosses at the soap reportedly hope by showing the couple opening a fruit and veg store, it will encourage healthy eating!
Finally, over on C4 soap Hollyoaks, Gemma Merna who plays ditzy blonde beautician Carmel Mc Queen has pledged her loyalty to the soap revealing that she's enjoying playing the part of the bubbly Chester resident ''more than ever''. Speaking to the Daily Star, Merna whose character is a fan favourite revealed that Carmel will be tested by the introducition of sexy priest Father Francis (Richard Winsor) who arrives next week.
She said: ''I love playing Carmel. I still can't believe that it's been nearly five years since I started. It's gone so quickly but I'm still enjoying it as much as ever. I've got no plans to go anywhere. Carmel has got loads of exciting things coming up and she's a great character to play. I still feel very lucky to be a McQueen."
So, that's a wrap as they say. Are you sad to hear of the death of Detective Brennan? Will Julie's new business encourage you to replace those Pringles for pineapples? Are you looking forward to the arrival of Father Francis and do you welcome more airtime for Carmel? Or do you just wish all the soaps would end? Whatever your views, comment underneath.
