EastEnders star Richard Blackwood spotted in secret meeting on Hollyoaks set

Former EastEnders actor Richard Blackwood, who played Vincent Hubbard in the BBC soap, has been spotted on the Hollyoaks set.

The 47-year-old was pictured leaving a secret meeting at the Hollyoaks set, sparking rumours he's joining the Channel 4 soap.

He was seen walking through the grounds of the set at Lime Pictures studios in Liverpool, before heading into his car.

Blackwood left EastEnders almost two years ago after his character Vincent was held at gunpoint by a corrupt police officer, but his fate was never revealed.

MirrorOnline has reached out to a representative for Blackwood for comment.

Hollyoaks is set to celebrate its 25th anniversary later this year, and it has already confirmed two big characters are returning – James Sutton as John Paul McQueen and Jamie Lomas as Warren Fox.

Lomas recently told Digital Spy his character Warren would be facing someone from his past, and he said the actor was a "well-known face", so it could be Blackwood.

"Warren grew up in a children's home, so they're going to explore that. They've got a character coming in as part of that. I can't say who's playing the character, but it's a well-known face," he said.

"They're going to team these two up together and delve into their past, so it's very exciting and it's going to be a long-running story.

"It'll be exciting for the fans and exciting for me to play. I think people will be excited by the storyline."

Anniversary episodes of soaps tend to be murderer and gruesome, so fans can probably expect this as Hollyoaks turns a quarter of a century.

During their 20th anniversary episode in 2015, the soap finally unveiled the identity of The Gloved Hand Killer.

Nurse Lindsey Butterfield was revealed to be killer of victims including Rick Spencer, Phoebe McQueen and Dylan Royle.

But she didn't stop there, and the special anniversary week saw her claim not one but three new victims, including boss Charles S'Avage, husband Freddie Roscoe and Ashley Davidson – Freddie turned out to be alive.
