Hollyoaks: See The Person- Diversity Documentary Releasing 12.30pm Today On Social Media

February 4, 2019

Hollyoaks has announced a special documentary to coincide with its diversity-themed episode airing next week.

Ahead of an E4 first-look episode premiering on Monday (February 4), the soap will release the 15-minute film Hollyoaks – See the Person at 12.30pm on its social channels earlier on that same day.

The documentary celebrates the importance of diversity on television through interviews with Hollyoaks crew and cast members like Amy Conachan, who is a wheelchair user, and Talia Grant, who has autism.

“Shakespeare didn’t say that Juliet wasn’t in a wheelchair, so I could definitely play… Juliet,” Amy points out in the documentary.

Producer Bryan Kirkwood says of See the Person: “At Hollyoaks we really like to celebrate diversity, I grew up in a house that wasn’t very well represented on TV at the time and I really like the idea that there are generations of people, from all walks of life, who can grow up watching themselves be represented on Hollyoaks.”

The documentary will premiere a few hours before E4’s first-look at a diversity-themed episode where Mandy (Sarah Jayne Dunn) and Darren (Ashley Taylor Dawson) face a life-changing decision about their unborn child.

Also in this special, Nancy (Jessica Fox) hosts a disability awareness event at The Bean for the local community, while Oscar (Noah Holdsworth) battles with stage fright on the day of the choir’s big performance.
