A number of Hollyoaks characters will be involved in a stunt early in the New Year.
Tony (Nick Pickard) and Diane Hutchinson (Alex Fletcher); Harry Thompson (Parry Glasspool); the Maalik family and Kim Butterfield (Daisy Wood-Davis) are all caught up in the carnage when Misbah Maalik’s (Harvey Virdi) car crashes, leaving everyone in danger.
Diane and Tony are headed for Diane’s sisters whilst the Maalik family and Kim are on their way home from a day out when the horror smash occurs.
Misbah is forced to choose which of her children to save when they’re trapped in the car towards which a lorry is headed at speed. This turn of events will lead to more drama for the Maalik family in the New Year.
Airing from 8th January, these scenes were filmed every night for a week in Liverpool’s Queensway tunnel, which was closed for the duration of the shoot.
Hollyoaks is produced by Lime Pictures for Channel 4.
