Former EastEnders actor Michael Greco gives a less-than-favourable review of AJ and Curtis Pritchard's debut on Hollyoaks.

Former EastEnders actor Michael Greco has hit out at the "shocking" acting skills of AJ Pritchard and Curtis Pritchard on Hollyoaks.

The brothers have joined the Channel 4 soap playing scheming brothers Marco and Jacob - and a clip of their debut has gone viral for the wrong reasons.

The majority of the comments about the pair on social media have been negative, with one user comparing them to "year 8 drama students" and many others likening them to planks of wood.

Greco, who played Beppe DiMarco in EastEnders for five years, gave his own review on Twitter, writing: "This is everything and more that is wrong with an industry I love. These people that suddenly come up with these casting ideas need to resign immediately. Shocking."

He added: "I think people can watch this and learn so much from it. How 'not' to act. Shocking."
