Danny Dyer is to guest star in Hollyoaks Later as a shady ex-pat called The White Man.

The hardman actor has just begun filming five one-hour specials of the Hollyoaks spin-off on location in Spain and Morocco, due to air on E4 in the autumn.

The series will see soap regular Tony Hutchinson - played by Nick Pickard - journeying to Spain and Morocco after agreeing to carry out a dodgy deal for the village hardman Trevor Royle (played by Greg Wood).

There he will get caught up with Danny's menacing character, and when the deal goes wrong, the sunny holiday turns into a nightmare.

The new instalment of the post-watershed series will also see the return of original Hollyoaks stars James Redmond and Jeremy Edwards, who play Tony's old friends Finn Finnigan and Kurt Benson, as well as Nick's real life brother John, who plays his on-screen brother Dom.

Jane Steventon, producer of Hollyoaks Later, said: "I'm thrilled that we have brought together such an amazing cast for this year's Later and with the addition of Danny Dyer, the adventures can really kick off."

Danny is best known for playing a gangster in The Business, a violent thug in The Football Factory and hosting a documentary series about gangsters called Danny Dyer's Deadliest Men.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
