Hollyoaks to celebrate 25th birthday with new series Hollyoaks@25

Hollyoaks@25 will showcase one week for every five years, each chosen for the significance and popularity of its storylines.

The first era will look at the years 1995-2000, specifically the year 1999, when the soap’s first ever major stunt was performed.

A young Tony, Lewis, Ruth and Lucy are desperate to escape the water tank in which they are being held captive by a vengeful Rob Hawthorne, the soap’s first ever villain.
