  • Not so Fab

    2.5
    In Italy recently on holiday and saw Fab that plays Ziggy. I wasn't going to stop as being 44 and not a massive fan of his I just looked at him as my partner and I passed him. Obviously he thinks he is something really special and far to important to have any contact with the people that help make hollyoaks number one and keep him in fake tan as just as I was passing I heard him say 'move along ugly'. How horrible of him. Had I been one of his teenage fans he could of caused real hurt to someone. And for the record Hollyoaks must use a lot of makeup and airbrushing. Maybe it was the rotten personality shinning through!moreless

  • nancys tattoo

    10
    I was highly disappointed to see that nancys tattoo has all of a sudden vanished (on 30/10/13 and 31/10/13) after a few years back when there was a big storyline of when her older sister becca hit the roof for nancy getting a tattoo. I am more disappointed at the fact that I like that tattoo so much I went and got it done my self and now the writers of the show have took it upon themselves and assumed that the viewers have forgot about the tattoo too and in no part of the show has there been any discussion about her tattoo getting removed. I would like an explanation for this.moreless
