Former 'Hollyoaks' bad boy Warren Fox - played by Jamie Lomas - is set to return from the dead and back to the village a year after seemingly dying in a nightclub fire
Warren Fox is returning from the dead in 'Hollyoaks'.
The soap bad boy - who apparently died in a fire at his nightclub The Loft - is set to return to the village in a shock new twist, with actor Jamie Lomas coming back to the show following a year break.
Producer Paul Marquess told DigitalSpy: "We were hopeful that Jamie's return would be the best-kept secret in soap history, but when Jamie arrived on set it proved impossible. When Warren Fox died in the Loft fire, we all thought that was the end of the dangerous gangster that terrorised the residents of Hollyoaks village.
"But when our writers made the shocking suggestion to bring back Warren in a juicy plot, it was just too irresistible to ignore as they not only made it feasible that Warren could have escaped the fire and fled the village, they created an explosive and very clever plot with lots of twists and turns that is guaranteed to have the audience hooked."
'Hollyoaks' fans last saw Warren apparently go up in flames at the club - which was eventually sold on to Cheryl Brady (Bronagh Waugh) and Danny Houston (Darren Day).
However, the gangster is set to return to the village to reclaim what he thinks is rightfully his.
Paul added: "When the idea was pitched to Jamie, he knew it was too good an opportunity to miss. Warren Fox was one of the soap's most memorable villains and we're very excited about his return."
Jamie is set to appear on our screens in the next few weeks.
