Not actually seen a whole episode, I'm not really into soaps plus they're on at crazy times but a new guy here at work has done a bit of acting *cough* it seems to be just extra work *cough* and led me to You Tube and the John Paul/Craig storyline from last year.

It's great! You get to only watch the bits you're interested in and that's it, no ads or rubbish stories about other cast members

The background to this clip (& me & the office have been working our way through the WHOLE JP/Craig story ) is that John Paul is gay and Craig is his best mate from school and has a gf. JP has confessed to Craig that he's in love with him and Craig is not having any of it, until now...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJMgSblk3Dw - John Paul & Craig

The acting is superb (especially for a soap) and the You Tube user da33431 has all the relevant clips uploaded

Got to say I'm not going to watch the current series (even on You Tube) but if anyone wants to natter about the Craig/JP storyline, then I'm all ears

PS Due to popular demand, I think we're going to put up a "Soaps" thread

It was *such* a well acted storyline, really outstanding for any soap - but especially for Hollyoaks which *cough* doesn't necessarily attract the best actors - they seem to employ the "will 14-20 year olds fancy you? yes! you're hired!"

Actually when Craig was first in the soap he was truly truly TRULY dreadful and very annoying but with that storyline the actor was just brilliant. I don't follow the various soap awards but i do hope that he or JP and the writers got some recognition for the storyline.

don't want to say too much more in case you've not seen how the storyline pans out Alex!

I'd certainly contribute to a soaps forum even though i'm giving Corrie a wide berth at the moment (the swapped at birth story is beyond stupid).

I never watched that storyline I saw snippets of it.
 
But I have started to get into Hollyoaks as when I am at my friends house it is always on so I have started to watch it.
 
I like the storyline JP has with the Priest going on at the moment will they won't they it is all good, better than Corrie at the moment.

Hollyoaks is the only soap i watch everyday. it had some really good story lines last year. John-Paul/Craig but also Hannah and her eating disoder, that storyine was amazingly acted and very emotional. If Emma Rigby(Hannah) doesn't win an award for her acting then that would be so silly.

So yes Alex i am here for a natter about hollyoaks.

I don't understand what happened between Becca (is she called Becca) and Justin I know they had Charlie, was Justin the pupil who Becca had an affair with?  As I have begun watching Hollyoaks Properly and I am confused.

Yes Justin was Becca's pupil.
Becca was also sent to prison becuase of it as she had sex with him whilst he was under age and to my meomery Justin said (but lied) she forced him onto her on something along those lines. Justin went to the police and said that what he said was un-ture, but it was to late has becca had been stabbed in prison. Just in case you wanted to know. Hope that helped

Thanks Hannah Thumbs%20Up, as Nancy and Justin were talking about Becca in tonights episode and saying Justin had lied and I wandered whether it was him who was her pupil.  He said that he still loved her tonight that was beautiful.
 
Was Becca married to Jake? At the time.

Channel 4 are doing a competition to script your own scenes. Worth a look if you've got a good imagination. You never know - you may win and then you'll get to see your work on tv!!

i thought the "fire at the dog" episodes were fantastic, brought me to tears and soaps normally dont make me cry!

I think the Newt storyline in Hollyoaks is really good

I do too. Its very well acted.
 
Also loving the baby storyline with the McQueen's. I do hope Jacqui gets to keep baby Max. Tina is far to annoying for my liking and treats Dom like dirt.
 
The storyline involving Max's death was incredible. I was in tears during the episodes after he died. Carley Stenson (steph) and Darren Jeffries (OB) were amazing throughout. Also little Tom. It was so heartbreaking when he blamed himself and when he thought no one wanted him :( xx
