Aedan Duckworth exits Hollyoaks for an unknown reason, with his character due to be recast.

Aedan Duckworth has left Hollyoaks and his character will be recast, the Channel 4 soap has confirmed.

The 19-year-old has played Ollie Morgan - son of Luke Morgan (Gary Lucy) - for more than two-and-a-half years but abruptly departed the show during the four-month period when filming was suspended by coronavirus.

Ollie is a key part of the soap's one-year flashforward storyline set on December 31, 2020 and in those scenes he was seen struggling with drug use.

No reason has been given for Duckworth's departure, with Channel 4 confirming that the character will now be recast ahead of the pivotal scenes leading up to New Year's Eve.

In a short statement, a Hollyoaks spokeswoman said: "Aedan Duckworth is no longer appearing in Hollyoaks and his role has been recast."

Duckworth's final scenes - shot before lockdown - have already aired and he has been removed from the soap's title sequence.
