The Blue singer is set to play Ryan, the head of a new family arriving in the village, but Duncan also be working with one of the soap's veteran stars when he joins later this year.
Unable to resist spilling the beans - well, some of them anyway - he tweeted:
Kieron Richardson is currently preparing to film one of his biggest ever ‘Hollyoaks’ storylines, and the actor teased details of how things will develop during a recent chat with The Huffington Post UK.
“I’ve had a bit of input into it because it’s something that we’ve touched upon in the past,” he teased. “But instead of dipping our toe in it, this time we’re going to throw the character into it.
“Ste’s like a cat, he’s got nine lives and his life is always in jeopardy. I feel like the latest stuff is no different. He’s putting his own life at risk.”
A previously released statement on Duncan’s character said: “Ryan is a good guy in a committed relationship who will move into the village.
“He is a grounded family man with principles and integrity but who will fight tooth and nail for what he believes in.”
