Paul Danan has revealed 'Hollyoaks' bosses are currently working out a storyline so his alter-ego Sol Patrick can return to the show after 16 years
Paul Danan is in talks to return to 'Hollyoaks'.
The 39-year-old actor hasn't been in the Channel 4 soap since 2001, when he portrayed troublesome teenager Sol Patrick, but the 'Celebrity Big Brother' star has revealed producers are keen for him to make a comeback over the next coming months.
However, while they are already trying to come up with a script for Sol to return after he fled the Cheshire town to escape his prostitute girlfriend Jess' pimp, Paul says he has his sights set on rival soap 'EastEnders'.
He told The Sun newspaper: "I would like to go back and do a stint on 'Hollyoaks'. Or a bit of 'EastEnders' would be good.
"I've been speaking to 'Hollyoaks' and they would love me to come back.
"They're just sorting a storyline for Sol to return. It would be nice. Gary Lucy and Sarah Dunn have gone back so I don't know why Sol can't do a little few months. I'm not desperate to do it because it's been it, seen it, done it. So if it happens, it happens."
After leaving the show, Paul made appearances on shows including ' The Kevin Bishop Show' and 'Test Drive My Girlfriend'.
Last month, Paul revealed he's been working on a new BBC sitcom based around Channel 4's 90s hit Desmond's'.
He said: "It's been a whirlwind. I've got a sitcom coming out - it will be a modern-day Desmond's set in a London barber's shop.
"I'm really excited as acting is my passion and that's what I want to be known for. I've had loads of messages of support from younger viewers who didn't know who I was before."
Paul gave no further details about the planned show, so it is unknown as of the time of writing when the programme is set to air.
Meanwhile, Paul - who was known for being one of the first 'Love Island' contestants in 2005 and 2006 - recently thanked 'CBB' for his time on the show last month, as he believes the opportunity has given him a "second chance" at his career.
He said: "Thank you 'Big Brother' for having me. You've given me a second chance."
