12 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Only 14 months ago, I was saying this show is near the Axed but Lucky one of there Advert they showed last year, Looked well mad and it worked on me.

I was never Fan of Oaks before but when I saw that Bus Crash and the aftermath.

Those set of episoed blew me away and the showed had me there and there have some great gripping storyliens Over that gripped.

There as not been one Dull moment this year, there alway drama every week, Shock and so many shocking twist and turns

Hollyoaks is like no other UK soap, it takes Risk and they pay off!,

Lastest soap awards Hollyoaks 3 awards beating Rival Eastenders with 0 awards and Emmerdale with 2.

Since then show as got EVEN better they few months awesome to watch, after long day work.

There I got another huge stunt this week,looks UNMISSABLE Blockbuter stuff.
