Jeremy Edwards thinks it would be "easy" for 'Hollyoaks' bosses to write him back into the Channel 4 soap, even though his character is supposed to have died in a jet ski accident

Jeremy Edwards thinks it would be "easy" to write him back into 'Hollyoaks'.

The 42-year-old star has reprised his role as Kurt Benson - who was killed in a jet ski accident, but it was never seen on screen - in the Channel 4 soap's spin-off show 'Hollyoaks Later', in which he appears as a figment of Tony Hutchinson's (Nick Pickard) imagination, and the hunk would love to reappear in the main show.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I didn't die on screen so yeah it would be easy for Kurt to come back.

"I could make up a story in about half an hour and I'm not even a script writer.

"If people on the internet go, 'Oh, I wish he was there,' then the bosses may well take that onboard. I will cross that bridge when I come to it though."

Jeremy has had a taste of returning to 'Hollyoaks' in 'Hollyoaks Later' as a guardian angel-type character who helps Tony following his diagnosis with cancer, and the actor was delighted with the reception he received from the crew upon his return to the show.

He added: "The crew haven't changed. A lot of them were there on day one on the very first episode, the very first shot.

"They remembered me, I was treated very well. When I arrived people were making a special effort. It was amazing. It really was great."

'Hollyoaks Later' airs nightly on E4 this week.
