Hollyoaks cast member Kieron Richardson only plays a "minor role" in the forthcoming flashforward episode.

Kicking back with Digital Spy recently, the Ste Hay actor was quizzed on his involvement in the New Year special, after his character returned to the soap with a point to prove this year.

Ste was central to the far-right extremist storyline of 2019, before skipping town for a while.

"I pop in for one scene in the flashforward," he revealed. "It's nothing massive, though, it's just one scene.

"It's going to be about putting all the pieces of the jigsaw together and Ste plays a minor role in explaining what happens in the episode, or why certain people are there."

Elsewhere in our chat, Richardson also admitted that he'd like to be a County Lines operation hero if the opportunity arises.

"I had a crash course in what county lines was – I hadn't heard of it before," he shared.

"It's such a good story and lots of people have been talking about it online. So yes, I think it would be great and it would give me a chance to work with actors I haven't before."

Hollyoaks continues Mondays through Thursdays with first-look episodes at 7pm on E4, followed by repeat airings on Channel 4 the following evening at 6.30pm.
