The 'Holby City' actor will take on the role of Patrick Blake - the biological father of Dodger Savage (Danny Mac).
After discovering earlier this year that Dirk was not his real father Dodger has been left and confused about his identity, with the shock of finding out his brother and sister are only half-siblings adding to the stress.
In November viewers will see Dodger track down his biological father and meeting with Patrick.
Jeremy, 46, is excited to take on the challenge, saying: "I'm very happy to be joining 'Hollyoaks' at a time when things are getting very exciting ..."
Dodger gets more than what he bargained for though, as it is revealed to him that he has a twin sister called Sienna, played by newcomer Emily Lawrance.
Emily said she is thrilled to be working on the soap and loves working with Jeremy
She said: "Joining 'Hollyoaks' is going to be fun and great experience for me. It goes without saying that working with Jeremy is brilliant."
The storyline will kick off on the week commencing November 19.
