Hollyoaks spoilers follow.

Joe McGann's Hollyoaks baddie Edward Hutchinson is on his way out of the Channel 4 soap.

The master manipulator has terrorised Tony Hutchinson (Edward's son) and Tony's wife Diane all year – even shacking up with the latter in a crazy turn of events – but as we know, soap villains always get their just deserts in the end.

Apparently, after a final showdown of events, Edward's true colours will eventually be exposed for all to see.

A Hollyoaks representative declined to comment on the news when contacted by Digital Spy.

Episodes airing over the holiday season will see Edward's scheming get darker than ever before as he puts his final plan into action.

But now that we know he's exiting the village, will Tony manage to fight back against his father's twisted behaviour?
