Hollyoaks star Jeremy Edwards says brief comeback was a 's**t show'
HIS comeback was lauded as a big deal – but Hollyoaks actor Jeremy Edwards reckons it ended up a fiasco.
He made a shock return as Kurt Benson – who had seemingly died in a jet-ski accident in 1999 – for the Channel 4 show’s 25th anniversary last autumn.
But on podcast Soap From The Box, out on Sunday, he reveals: “It became a bit of a s**t show.
"I was supposed to be back for much longer, then Covid struck. It would have been better to leave it alone because it wasn’t one thing or the other, they didn’t know where they were going with it.
“I was prepared to go for six months to a year but doing three months then not knowing my future?
"The fact is, Kurt’s alive, he can come back and they’ve said they want me back in future.
"But I’ve said, ‘Nah’.”

'Married' Oz cast will sue

A source said: “Two years after it initially aired in Australia, they’re now having to endure a second backlash. And with the show broadcasting in America, they’re bracing themselves for a third round of hate.”
Psychological expert Dr Trisha Stratford quit the series after claiming producers ignored pleas to reject vulnerable participants.
After bosses set up cast members to say “I do”, they could soon be hearing “I sue”.
