Hollyoaks brought back one of the soap's original stars, Jeremy Edwards, to reprise his role of Kurt Benson, for a storyline which saw him scamming some of his former friends.
It was a short return, tied into the show's 25th anniversary celebrations last month, but Digital Spy understood that the door was open for a more substantial potential return.
Now, the actor has shared a disappointing update, stating that he has decided he no longer wants to make a second comeback.
Addressing his followers on Twitter, Jeremy stated that it was partly because of comments he'd received on the social media site that he made that choice.
"It is with a heavy heart I am announcing I will NOT be returning to Hollyoaks," he tweeted. "Many reasons but I'd be lying if I said being judged on here hasn't influenced my decision.
"Never say never but for now I'm done. Thank you to those who have supported me for me."
