Hollyoaks bosses have unveiled five new characters set to join the C4 soap later this month when they join HCC as university freshers. Joining the five newcomers at the college will be Theresa McQueen (Jorgie Porter) and boyfriend Will Savage (James Atherton).
Taking on the role of artistocrat Barney who finds himself out of his comfort zone as he join HCC is Tom Scurr whilst rock chick Ash will be played by actress Holly Welton. The role of slacker Scott will be taken on by Calvin Demba with David Atkin portraying sports jock Rob and Tamaryn Payne playing pretty Annalise.
Meanwhile, couple Will and Theresa are soon joining the five newbies at the comprehensive college when Theresa feels put out by Will's ability to gel with the newcomers. Also set to share scenes with the new characters is ladies man Dodger Savage (Danny Mac), Will's older brother who becomes manager of the SU Bar in the hope that he can pull ladies through the job.
A teaser from a Hollyoaks spokesperson stated: ''Possibly the coolest set of students ever to land in the Chester village, this year's Freshers are set to shake things up… Join them all as they live, love and learn life's hardest lessons in one of the wildest, most fun and cringe-worthy Freshers' weeks of all time." The new characters will debut on screens from Monday, September 26 at 6:30pm on Channel 4.
