Still rocking!!!
4 May 2002 | by juicyju5See all my reviews

Hey everyone! When Hollyoaks started in 1995 I was only 10 but got hooked and now 7 years later it still rocks and is the only soap out there for people my age! There have been a number of cast changes but they just make the show what it is. The guys are hot and the girls are easy to relate to which just makes it addictive. The stroy lines are unique and capture the audience in a way, that i feel, no other soap does. The writers are never stuck for ideas coz no matter what the story line is it wouldn't have been on the show before. Love the show and everyone needs to watch it!
