Hollyoaks confirms Scott Mills and Sonia cameos in Eurovision special

Hollyoaks and Eurovision Song Contest fans are in for a treat this week as the Channel 4 soap welcomes two special guests.

Set in Chester and heavily filmed at Lime Pictures' studios in Liverpool, Hollyoaks is the perfect setting for a Eurovision special — with the final of the talent show taking place on Saturday (May 13) in Liverpool.

Radio 2 presenter and Eurovision commentator Scott Mills and Liverpool-based singer and Eurovision 1993 UK entry Sonia will appear in Hollyoaks tomorrow (May 11).

Mills will play himself during the special episode, where he runs into some issues while trying to get to Eurovision on time.

He will appear opposite Nick Pickard's character Tony Hutchinson and Chelsee Healey's character Goldie McQueen.

Running short on time, Mills will have to ask local councilman Tony and resident Goldie for help to make it to the event before it starts.

The Eurovision scenes do not end there.

Also, in the episode, Sonia will be performing her 1993 hit 'Better the Devil You Know' at the local pub, The Dog.

Sonia came second in 1993 with the song, beaten to first place by Ireland singer Niamh Kavanagh with the song 'In Your Eyes'.

The pop star, although playing herself, is linked to Scott Drinkwell (Ross Adams), who is entrusted with looking after her as part of his Eurovision volunteering.

Scott learns that Sonia went to school with his aunt, Diane Hutchinson (Alex Fletcher), which adds to his palpable Eurovision excitement and euphoria.

Eagle-eyed fans of Hollyoaks will know that Mills already appeared in the show in 2008.

Hollyoaks streams first online via Channel 4, with new episodes dropping each weekday morning. The show airs Mondays to Fridays at 6.30pm on Channel 4, and at 7pm on E4.

Selected omnibus episodes are available via Prime Video.
