What is HollyOaks?

I keep getting clips of gay scenes from HollyOaks.

Is it a gay soap opera?

A British soap with lots of hot gay characters. It's prime was 2007.

It is set in Cheshire in the North of England. The fact that many of the characters have London accents is an enduring mystery. An actor friend of mine worked on the show some years ago. He told me that the younger members of the cast were always having to deal with outbreaks of crabs.

Looks like there's going to be a romance between the non binary character and Brooke who despite dating Imran, will now come out as non binary.

I like Ripley. .. A little bit of Brooke goes a long way, though.

I like Shaq.

I don't like Summer at all and think this thing with Sienna is a real stretch. .. Oh, and the "Simmer" squad is nutzoid.

They seem bound and determined to put John Paul, James, and Ste in the same orbit. .. Not into that. .. I'd prefer all three guys find someone new, or at least one of them find someone new, and the other two in a triangle with someone new.

And since characters seem fluid at the drop of a hat, can Shaq go bi- for James? .. lol! .. I like their chemistry. .. I notice that actor (Omar Malik) played gay "Omar" in the Leeds Playhouse production of "My Beautiful Laundrette."

R26 When it comes to Scott, I think they should probably just keep him single or recast Mitchell if-when the Toby reveals occurs. They could, however, show Scott on a comical disaster date every now and again.

I agree r27.

by Anonymousreply 29July 21, 2021 3:31 PM

R28 Darren's never switched teams, although some viewer were thinking he and Kyle should have taken their psych support for one another to a different level.

That probably would have confounded the seriousness of the mental health issues they were dramatizing, but I can just hear Nancy screeching at Darren, "You fucked my fiancé, and you think I should forgive you!?"

by Anonymousreply 30July 21, 2021 8:35 PM

Speaking of Craig Dean, I think it's been long enough, and they should just bite the bullet and recast the character. Burnet's never returning (which is fine by me, btw), and a recast could actually help create new drama with the other boys in the village.

Craig's not only JP's ex-, but he's supposed to be co-parenting Matthew. When last heard, Craig had been living with JP and their son as a family down in Singapore; then Craig up and ran off with his personal trainer. .. So reintroduce Craig to the village, then have the cute personal trainer soon follow. He'd be a hot twunk who'd fill the gap left by Harry, and immediately catch James' eye. Maybe Ste's too.

To answer OP question, Hollyoaks is a magical place where sexuality is fluid and at any moment a character can suddenly develop bisexuality and become involved with a member of the opposite sex. Suddenly the town seems to maybe developing a similar situation with non-binary.

The person who plays Brooke besides their character coming out as non binary has also come out irl as non binary.

R34 Interesting, because I was wondering why introduce a non-binary character just to have one of their regulars suddenly go non-binary. I don’t know enough about non-binary, but is that a regular course of coming out, meeting another non-binary person and then figuring out that you are? It seems like that would be something you live and feel from very young young rather discovering later in young adulthood.

by Anonymousreply 35July 23, 2021 12:38 AM

Billy Price has been a great addition to the cast in the last few year and is a very strong actor. He and Owen Warner live together and it looks like super fit Owen has gotten Billy to start working out as he seems to be bulking up and developing some muscle.

[quote] It seems like that would be something you live and feel from very young young rather discovering later in young adulthood.

R35 The teenage character who is about to come out non-binary (Brooke) is also autistic and one of the things they've highlighted over the last three of years she's been on is that she isn't always certain or aware of social cues and/or needs things that are understood by nearly everyone else explained to her. I can't tell you that this non-binary self-realization would be real-life for someone like her, but Brooke's story related to her autism has often been about "discovery" -- and after she met the non-binary Ripley and had what that means explained to her, they've written in some *light bulb" moments for Brooke where she now recognizes something about herself that she relates to.

Girl I’ll be crying about Sarah Barnes in the afterlife tbh. And I’m still so furious they made Lydia a nutcase and Zoe a cheating girl bisexual bitch. We could have been so sapphically happy, but no we have to have vengeance and murder and borderline incest and violent freak accidents instead😭

I know most of the gay fans hated Sarah for her part in the McDean storyline, but I actually rather liked her and felt sorry for her. Even her lesbian turn sort of made sense—IRL I’ve known a couple of clueless lipstick femme model straight women who can’t make it work with men or objectifying themselves in the patriarchal world, and suddenly a light goes on psychologically and they discover what’s been missing.

R28/R30 the funny and interesting thing about Darren is that he’s a rare example in soap of a very camp and swishy straight fella. The joke is that he’s not gay, but he acts like the worst outdated stereotype of a gay man, i.e. incredibly bitchy and vain and always ready with a catty comment. It’s actually refreshing to see a straight man with these qualities on telly, because it’s more common IRL than people assume (I was socially teased in secondary school by a straight boy with his sort of nasty streak).

What I did like about Darren is how beneath all the banter and teasing he looked after his stepbrother Craig Dean so well, and even grew to love him. He was a better big brother to Craig than Craig’s actual biological brother, the homophobic and creepy bully Jake. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that Craig & Darren are rather alike, and that had Darren been into men then he would have been Craig’s mentor of sorts.

R37 Talia Grant, the actress playing Brooke is very well-spoken, and more high-functioning than her character. I suspect she has Asperger’s rather than classic autism.

As a female with Asperger’s myself, I think she is courageous to tackle such a role. Women like us are very often misunderstood and misapprehended.

It’s a bit of a shame that Grant has bought into gender identity politics, but unfortunately autistic women often fall into that trap.

I've really enjoyed watching this series on YouTube. The three main gays are pretty tired by now, though. How long have they been circling one another? At least the show seems to realize it too, since their story has dried up post-George. Truly, John Paul and James both could leave and I wouldn't miss them. I still like Ste , strange enough. Despite everything.

On another note, James and Ste are boring. And I'm really sick of Ste and his daughter. It's one annoying screamfest after another. And who's lame idea was it to script that Leah has the talent (not to mention the body type) to be a "dancer." There's no way that's believable. I almost feel sorry for her having to play this.

by Anonymousreply 63September 20, 2021 7:20 PM

They should have made Ste’s son Lucas the dancer, that would have been more believable and ground breaking, Hollyoaks loves being ground breaking.

The only other gays currently in the village r63 are Scott and JP. James certainly has no interest in Scott and JP rejected James after finding out his involvement in the shooting of Mercedes. Ste doesn't seem interested in JP.

by Anonymousreply 65September 20, 2021 8:06 PM

Putting two guys together simply because they're the only two who've never been together (e.g. James & Ste) isn't al that different than ye olde "two gay guys in the village" trope.

As far as Ste is concerned I think they should look into recasting Sami's other brother, Azim, for him. .. Recall, those two were about to start something when Ste was getting out of the right-wing group, but the duo opted to put it on hold. .. Just find a hotter guy to play Azim.

James needs a new twunk in his life. .. And if they want to do a dance story, then I'd have Romeo take a weekend job as a pole dancer and have some fellow mentor-dancer (gay) catch James' eye .. lol.

If John Paul sticks around (I'm not really sure I care), then just bite the bullet and finally recast Craig. He is, after all, supposed to be Matthew's other father. He should show up at some point in time. It's been long enough.

Scott's typically comic-relief. Just set him up on one disaster date after another - a few times a year - until deciding what to do about his absent husband, Mitchell. A recast on that front would be hoped-for as well.

Of course, I realize they probably wouldn't play seven or eight gay guys in the village all at once, so not all of this could go on concurrently, but IMO, they definitely need some NEW BLOOD on the gay front.

You know, I don't think anyone in the village has ever made a comment about Summer's missing arm. And in some interview I glanced over, I recall the actress playing her said something about how Hollyoaks wasn't having her disability play any factor in her characterization at all. So perhaps not having the police use this in Identifying her tied into how the show was totally ignoring it in general. - jmho

by Anonymousreply 78October 1, 2021 12:10 AM

R78 I might guess that Warren will be the one to take Fergus down. He'll learn about the pervy Bluebird project, and that will be intolerable leading to some kind of showdown. It would go toward Warren's redemption for his recent assholery, and in some way every owner in the village would get their business or home back. And yeah, I could see this tying into something at Christmas with them getting back what they lost at that time. - jmho

PC Kiss was the only thing that was worth watching on Hollyoaks. Now that he's killed off, there's basically no hot gay guys left. Unless the writers were to make Brody and Romeo suddenly turn gay for one another...

R80 you do realize Brody is dead, so if he’s made gay now it won’t matter much. Romeo is getting pumped bigger and bigger everyday, soon he’ll float away. They didn’t even give him any time in the fall preview and he has no storyline, I guess he just hits the studio gym everyday and works out.
