This will be another blow to Hollyoaks after over 20 cast members have either left or been axed from the soap. The production company announced in February that the soap would be cut back from five episodes a week to just three and major cast cuts. 

The cast cull has been coming in thick and fast over the past few months and its left fans wondering who will be next to go?
