Channel 4 presenter Rick Edwards likes to tease the 'Hollyoaks' cast by always referring to them by their character names
Rick Edwards finds it funny to refer to the 'Hollyoaks' cast by their character names.
The TV presenter - who also works on the spin-off 'Hollyoaks Music Show' - is a self-confessed fan of the raunchy soap and finds it amusing winding up the cast by pretending they are their alter-egos.
He told BANG Showbiz last night (13.05.10) at the Ctrl.Alt.Shift Dear Diary: Secrets and Struggles from Kenya to the UK event in Hoxton Hall, London: "I'm doing another series of the 'Hollyoaks' music show which starts filming this weekend, so I'm travelling up to Liverpool to do that. So that'll be fun.
"I insist on calling them by their character names, even if I know their real names, which they find hilarious."
The TV hunk adores watching the Channel 4 soap and particularly enjoys scenes with ditsy blonde beautician Carmel Valentine (Gemma Merna).
He added: "I was going to say guilty, but it's not really a guilty pleasure. I'm very happy to admit I really love 'Hollyoaks'.
"My favourite female is probably Carmel, played by Gemma Merna, she's so funny, she really makes me laugh."
