Hollyoaks confirms exits for AJ and Curtis Pritchard after "cameo roles"

·2-min read

Hollyoaks has confirmed that Strictly Come Dancing and Love Island stars AJ and Curtis Pritchard have made their final appearance on the Channel 4 soap.

The pair had been playing devious twins Marco and Jacob, who were professional dancers who turned up to try and sabotage all of Trish Minniver's (Denise Welch) plans, eventually stealing her book of dance contacts.

But it looks like the brothers have uttered their last 'How's Trish?' as their time on the soap has come to an end.

Soap queen Sharon Marshall said she had been told about it on today's (May 24) This Morning, and Digital Spy has confirmed that they were only on the show for "cameo roles" and their final scenes have already aired.

The pair's appearance on the soap received a big response on social media, although it wasn't very positive. Fans slammed their attempts at acting, with former soap stars chiming in to criticise the practice of casting non-actors because of their followings.

Responding to the backlash, Curtis said that they weren't aware of it and they had a good time on the soap.

AJ added: "If someone's got constructive criticism, 100 per cent that's great, but if it's just negativity then it's not something I'm going to waste my energy and time on that."

Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4, and at 7pm on E4.
