Danny Dyer has joined the cast of 'Hollyoaks Later'.
The 'Football Factory' star will portray a ruthless ex-pat known as 'The White Man' in the E4 show - a late night spin-off of Channel 4's popular soap - and his alter-ego will be seen going up against Tony Hutchinson (Nick Pickard) after the 'Hollyoaks' stalwart gets caught up in a dodgy deal in Spain.
Jane Steventon, producer of Hollyoaks Later', said: "I'm thrilled that we have brought together such an amazing cast for this year's Later and with the addition of Danny Dyer, the adventures can really kick off."
Tony will be inducted into a whole world of pain in the shape of kidnapping, Russian roulette and high-stakes poker when his deal with village hard man Trevor Royle (Greg Wood) goes wrong and The White Man becomes his merciless enemy.
Along with old friend Rory 'Finn' Finnigan (James Redmond) and his brother Dom Reilly (John Pickard), Tony - who will also be battling cancer throughout the sixth 'Hollyoaks Later' series - will be tasked with getting the trio out of their sticky Spanish situation.
The latest instalment of 'Hollyoaks Later' will be screened in autumn 2013 on E4.
