PUBLISHED: 10:59 22 June 2011
CAST members from one of Britain’s most popular soaps will swap the dramas of Chester for the beaches of Weston when they film in town next month.
Stars of Hollyoaks will be shooting special scenes for the week-day series at T4 On The Beach on July 10.
Characters Ethan (Craig Vye), Liberty (Abi Phillips) and Theresa (Jorgie Porter) will take a trip to the resort as Ethan bids to keep the love triangle between them from spilling out.
Theresa and Ethan take their place in the crowd surrounded by thousands of T4 fans as they plan to enjoy some time alone together, but the cameras are not far away from where they are standing, which could spell trouble for Ethan.
The special T4 On The Beach scenes will be broadcast during Hollyoaks on Channel 4 and E4 from July 13-15.
While Liberty gets her big break, Abi Phillips who plays her will become the first person in T4 On The Beach history to perform as two different people when she sings her own solo material to the crowd.
She will be joined at T4 On The Beach by a number of top music acts performing across the two big stages throughout the day.
They include JLS, Jessie J, The Wanted, Olly Murs, Example, Alexis Jordan, N-Dubz, Chipmunk, Jason Derulo, Nicola Roberts, McFly, Tinchy Stryder, Katy B, Aloe Blacc, The Wombats, Wretch 32, The View, Cher Lloyd and The Midnight Beast.
Fellow cast members from Hollyoaks, as well as actors from The Only Way Is Essex, Made In Chelsea and Skins will also appear on the day.
Abi said: “It will be my biggest audience to date, so it’s a little scary, but I just can’t wait to get out there and perform. I hope the fans like the episode of Hollyoaks too.
“I love the idea of dropping in my scenes from T4 On The Beach in episodes just two days later. It’s going to be tight, but it’s all very exciting.”
