Hollyoaks teen Harry Thompson is exposed as a male prostitute in another huge storyline twist tonight (November 10).

Harry returns to our screens in surprising circumstances in E4's first look episode this evening as Ryan Knight (Duncan James) picks him up while looking for someone to spend the night with.

Viewers already knew that Harry was sleeping rough after being kicked out by his dad Tony, but they had no idea that he'd resorted such desperate measures to get by.

Ryan goes on the hunt for a guy to sleep with as he's fuelled by sexual frustration after another kiss with his secret lover Kyle Kelly.

The dodgy detective goes to pick up a prostitute but can't believe his eyes when it's Harry who approaches his car. Thinking quickly, Ryan pretends he was undercover and arrests Harry on the spot – but will Harry realise something isn't right here?

Parry Glasspool, who plays Harry, revealed: "Things go from bad to worse for poor Harry. He's been thrown out, he's grown some sexy stubble and he's taken to becoming a male prostitute to survive.

"While he's on the job, Ryan comes looking for a male prostitute to help with his sexual frustration and instead finds Harry. There is a lot of confusion and to avoid the truth coming out, Ryan arrests Harry. James comes to the rescue, and the rest has to be watched!"

Asked whether Harry now knows the truth about Ryan deep down, Parry replied: "I think he is about to realise the truth, but then his train of thought gets swept away when he gets arrested. He has a lot on his mind as it is, so it's very low on his priorities as to what is up with Ryan."

With James Nightingale (Gregory Finnegan) looking out for Harry yet again, Hollyoaks fans may be wondering whether there's still a spark between the unlikely pair and whether it could go anywhere.

Discussing the possibility, Parry explained: "If two people are attracted to each other, then I don't see why not! But I feel like Harry is still a sucker for Ste and won't be forgetting about him any time soon. However, there might be a little spark here or there between the two!"

Fielding the all-important question of whether there's a future for Starry, he added: "I'd like to think so. In real life I'd say absolutely not, because Harry pretty much killed Ste's baby mama, and then just left her there. He then lied about it and put Ste in jail for six months – who just forgets that? Luckily for Harry, this is soap world and I feel like they might have a chance."

Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first look screenings at 7pm on E4.
