The old idiot will return to the village in much reduced circumstances for the 25th anniversary
By Patrick McLennan
Channel 4 soap opera celebrates Hollyoaks 25th anniversary with the return from the dead of one of the village’s most popular characters – the handsome Kurt Benson, played by Jeremy Edwards
Edwards, 49, was in the very first episode of Hollyoaks and has always been one of the most desirable men on the soap opera
Kurt reportedly died in a jet ski crash in 1999, but he made a series of dream-scene appearances during Hollyoaks later in 2013
Kurt will stun the locals when he returns to his hometown on his iconic motorbike and shares his first scenes with his best friend Tony (Nick Pickard), who gave his friend for dead over two decades ago
This may disappoint Pickard, as he recently revealed the former Hollyoaks star that he wanted to come back and it wasn’t Edwards Is that the reason for this reaction when Kurt arrives?
Where has the idol been hiding all these years? Hollyoaks did not explain where Kurt was, but said he is under the ‘manipulation’ of his disheveled father Edward Hutchinson (played by Joe McGann) living in a trailer and on the verge of divorce from his wife Diane
It is clear that he needs the support of his best friend But are there other reasons he returned to the village?
In the ’90s, Kurt was the center of fiery female attention on and offscreen.He had a deadly feud with villainous Rob Hawthorne (Warren Derosa) and escaped an attempted murder charge. Kurt then married the lovely Ruth Osborne (Tony’s sister, played by Terri Dwyer) but, of course, being Hollyoaks, the young love was never going to last
Kurt had an affair with Katie Patrick (Natasha Symms), which led to Kurt and Ruth’s divorce and, soon, his exit from the soap opera
Edwards progressed to BBC One’s Holby City where he played nurse Danny Shaughnessy in the medical drama from 1999 to 2003 He then appeared in Celebrity Big Brother in 2005, fourth, and Dancing on Ice in 2009, where he left the ITV show early in the competition and appeared in a variety of talk shows, variety shows and various dramas in the following years.
It’s unclear when Edwards will join Hollyoaks, but the 25th anniversary falls on Friday October 23
