Hollyoaks gay romance reignites in city centre

CAST and crew members of the popular Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks created a stir in Dublin's city centre where they were filming scenes.

Irish actor Emmett Scanlan, who plays Brendan, was filmed kissing co-star Kieron Richardson (Ste) on Ha'penny Bridge last night.

The characters have had an off-off relationship in the soap for the past two years, and it looks as if their sojourn to Dublin means it's back on.

The pair were also filmed in scenes around Middle Abbey Street.

Dublin-born Scanlan (33) has played Brendan Brady since 2010, but has been tipped for a successful movie career: he was named best actor at the European Independent Film Festival 2011 for his performance in Charlie Casanova.

However, he says Brady has "unfinished business".
