Hollyoaks favourites go up in flames
A number of 'Hollyoaks' favourites are to be killed off during an upcoming arson attack on Tony Hutchinson's restaurant Il Gnosh
A number of 'Hollyoaks' favourites are set to be killed off during an arson attack of Il Gnosh.
The village restaurant - which is run by long-running character Tony Hutchinson (Nick Pickard) - is set to go up in flame on Guy Fawkes night, November 5, when the eatery is set alight by criminals.
Producer Paul Marquess told the DailyStar.co.uk: "We are not revealing who will survive the fire but fans should be prepared. The victims are much-loved characters and it's going to be truly shocking. The sets have been prepped to go up in flames and the cast and crew are really looking forward to filming such powerful scenes. Hollyoaks will never be the same again."
Tony's brother Dominic Reilly (John Pickard), Malachy Fisher (Glen Wallace), Mercedes Fisher (Jennifer Metcalfe) and her cousin Bart McQueen (Jonny Clarke) are all set to be trapped inside the burning building with a number of their pals.
Steph Cunningham (Carley Stenson) - who is ill with terminal cancer - and her fiance Gilly Roach (Anthony Quinlan), Ravi Roy (Stephen Uppal), Cheryl Brady (Bronagh Waugh) and her pal Lynsey Nolan (Karen Hassan) will also end up fighting for their lives after getting caught up in the blaze.
Young mum Amy Barnes (Ashley Slanina-Davies) will be another 'Hollyoaks' resident stuck in the drama, as she fights to make sure her young children Leah and Lucas are safe.
Other youngsters to struggle out of the building will include schoolchildren Finn and Sinead O'Connor (Connor Wilkinson and Stephanie Davis) and their pal Amber Sharpe (Lydia Lloyd-Henry).
'Hollyoaks' will be airing the upcoming storyline in a week of special episodes in November.
