'Hollyoaks' character Jason Roscoe will overdose on steroids later this year.
The student deli delivery boy - played by Alfie Browne-Sykes - will get involved with a drug dealer who supplies steroids, which he buys to try and bulk up quickly in episodes which will air in June, reports Digital Spy.
Jason's storyline will help explore Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), which is an anxiety disorder and those diagnosed with the condition often have a warped view regarding their appearance.
Jason isn't satisfied with the way he looks and has previously consulted his older brother Ziggy - played by Fabrizio Santino - for advice on building muscle mass and his paranoia will gradually escalate.
Steroids have been previously associated with athletes as it has been used enhance to enhance their performance as well as being used to build muscle mass.
Alfie joined the soap in May last year and is often found covering up his twin brother Robbie Roscoe's mistakes.
He is described as "brilliant, happy, insecure and troubled all at once" on Channel 4's official website and is the quiet one "in a house of hectic noise".
