Will Mellor 'won't be returning' for Hollyoaks 25th anniversary

Will Mellor has said he won’t be involved with the upcoming Hollyoaks anniversary.

The soap will mark its 25th anniversary later this year, and Channel 4 is already screening classic episodes in the run up to the occasion.

Plans for the anniversary are still a mystery but one thing we now know is James ‘Jambo’ Bolton – played by Will – won’t be back on our screens.

Speaking on Lorraine on Wednesday, Will was asked by host Christine Lampard whether he was still a fan of Hollyoaks.

The actor praised the Channel 4 soap for launching his career, adding that he had great memories of his time on the show.

‘Hollyoaks started my career so how can I not be [a fan]?’ Will said.

‘Hollyoaks I’ve got a lot to thank for where I am now. There’s an anniversary coming.

‘Sadly I won’t be returning but I’ve got a lot to thank that show for, so happy anniversary for when it comes round.’

Fans who might have been hoping for a reunion between Jambo and Tony will no doubt be feeling disappointed.

Will was part of the original cast back in 1995 before leaving in 1998. He returned for a guest appearance in a Christmas episode – with Jambo appearing as a vision to Tony – in 2004.

E4 is currently airing the [email protected] series, looking back at some of the soap’s most iconic storylines.

Lorraine airs weekdays at 9am on ITV.
