    Keith Rice has spoken exclusively to Digital Spy about his return to the show, hinting that viewers may see "a different Finn".

    The actor will return to set this week to film a handful of scenes in his role as Finn O'Connor, who is currently serving time in a youth offenders institute for raping John Paul McQueen and attempting to rape Nancy Osborne.

    Finn's new scenes will continue to explore the male rape storyline as John Paul is convinced to pay him a visit.

    Speaking to Digital Spy at the RTS North West Awards, Rice commented: "I can't wait to go back. We've got a couple of scripts and we've got a really good director on board.

    "The stuff that's been written is lovely and it's a chance to touch back upon the storyline but in a positive light. It's one where John Paul can go into the future in a really positive frame of mind, which is nice."

    He continued: "It's a different Finn because he touches upon the fact that he's been on a rehabilitation programme. He's apologetic for what he's done, but it's interesting to wonder whether he's really being apologetic or whether he's still trying to be manipulative. Could he still want John Paul in his life to try to control him?

    "You'll have to wait and see exactly how it develops, but I think it'll be nice for the viewers who have followed the storyline for so long."

    While Finn isn't being released back into the village, Rice confirmed that he is open to the possibility of reprising the role again in the future once his twisted character has served his time.

    He said: "It's Hollyoaks, so anything can happen. I think there are lots of unsolved things. Finn and Diane's relationship obviously isn't the best at the moment, so that'd be good to explore. There are also things to explore with Finn and Sinead.

    "You've also got Tony's son Harry joining the show. If Finn came out and saw a happy home where Tony, Diane, Harry and Sinead are living together, you never know how he might react to that. Even with rehabilitation, Finn could come back really nice and as a changed person. I think there's still so much to explore."

    Hollyoaks will air Finn's return scenes early next year.

    Hollyoaks actor James Sutton has told Digital Spy that he is glad to see his former co-star Keith Rice making a return to the show.

    Rice is returning to the show's set this week to film a handful of new scenes as Finn O'Connor, which will air early next year.

    Finn was last month found guilty of raping Sutton's character John Paul McQueen, as well as attempting to rape Nancy Osborne. His brief return to screens will see John Paul pay him a visit in a youth offenders institute.

    Speaking to Digital Spy at the RTS North West Awards, Sutton commented: "I can't wait as I love working with Keith. He's a very passionate and very talented young man, and he takes his job very seriously.

    "I think we bring out the best in each other, to be honest. The stuff that we did in the past could have been really difficult, but he makes it good fun."

    Before John Paul revisits his past ordeal with Finn, he has happier times ahead as he will tie the knot with his boyfriend Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson) in a Christmas wedding.

    Hollyoaks will broadcast the scenes in a special hour-long episode which will air on Christmas Eve.

    Speaking of the couple's festive ceremony, Sutton added: "We're chuffed to bits with it. We're also really excited with what the next 12 to 18 months is going to hold for the characters. It's great and we work really well together.

    "We're just thrilled - [the wedding] was really good fun and really nice to film. What's coming up for them is quite big and you couldn't ask for anyone better than Kieron to be part of it with."

    Hollyoaks villain Finn O'Connor will return to screens on February 11, it has been confirmed.

    Actor Keith Rice recently filmed a handful of new scenes for the Channel 4 soap, which will bring closure to his evil character's dark storyline with John Paul McQueen.

    Finn raped John Paul in January 2014, but he was finally brought to justice in October when the case went to trial.

    John Paul's past with Finn comes back to haunt him just when he is celebrating the fact that Patrick Blake has offered him his job back at Hollyoaks High.

    With John Paul in high spirits, he is brought crashing back down to earth when he receives an unexpected call from Finn. As Finn wants to see him, John Paul is also later sent a visiting order.

    The schoolteacher's initial hasty reaction is to offer up money to gangster Trevor Royle, asking him to help get rid of Finn once and for all.

    John Paul is also shocked further when he finds out that Finn's sister Sinead has been secretly visiting him in prison.

    With Sinead now closely linked to the McQueens due to the baby she is having with Ste, John Paul struggles to cope and orders his new husband to choose between him and Sinead.

    When Finn's return was first revealed last year, it was confirmed that the storyline will ultimately lead to John Paul granting his request by visiting him behind bars.

    Rice told Digital Spy in November: "It's a different Finn because he touches upon the fact that he's been on a rehabilitation programme. He's apologetic for what he's done, but it's interesting to wonder whether he's really being apologetic or whether he's still trying to be manipulative."

    Hollyoaks is bringing back one of the village's most sinister villains as Finn O'Connor is making another return to the show.

    The evil teenager hasn't been seen on our screens since February 2015, when John Paul McQueen paid him a visit in prison.

    Finn was jailed in October 2014 when he was found guilty of raping John Paul and attempting to rape Nancy Osborne, which brought one of the show's darkest stories to a conclusion.

    Keith Rice has now reprised the role of Finn once again and he appears in the official cast list for next week's episodes, which see his stepmum Diane return to the village with a secret.

    Show bosses are keeping tight-lipped about how and why Finn is back, as well as how long he'll be returning for - so it's currently unclear whether he'll be released from prison or just getting a visitor.

    As always, though, you should keep an eye on Digital Spy for more updates as we have them.

    It's no secret that John Paul is leaving the show in the not-too-distant future, so could Finn's comeback pave the way for his exit? And how could the looming threat of Finn affect John Paul's current relationship with James Nightingale?

    Fans may also wonder how Nancy will react when Finn's name crops up again, after her own past ordeal with the sinister villain.

    Nancy is already going through a tough time after being diagnosed with MS, so the timing couldn't be worse.

    Note: The following article contains discussion of sexual misconduct that some readers may find upsetting.


    Hollyoaks star Keith Rice has spoken exclusively to Digital Spy about his shock return to the soap.

    The actor has signed up to reprise his role as rapist Finn O'Connor and has already filmed his comeback scenes.

    Fans were given their first hint of Finn's return earlier this week, when he was spotted by eagle-eyed viewers in the background of a behind-the-scenes video released by Hollyoaks.

    Speaking to Digital Spy, Keith has now revealed: "I'm so excited to be back, and to be working with the talented Hollyoaks cast and crew again.

    "I'm really intrigued to see how Finn, following his time in prison, will integrate back into his family and also back into society.

    "I'm looking forward to exploring it, and also still giving the storyline the respect and sensitivity it deserves."

    Digital Spy can reveal that Finn's return scenes see his step-mum Diane Hutchinson (Alex Fletcher) reach out to him in prison.

    Diane gets in touch as she wants to better understand the mindset of a rapist, after Sinead bravely speaks out about the ordeal that her husband Laurie Shelby has put her through. An emotional Diane hopes that Finn's insight can help to bring Laurie to justice.

    Further on down the line, Finn will be released from prison as his sentence comes to an end. The big questions afterwards will be whether the villagers allow him to settle back into the community and whether he is truly sorry for his crimes.

    Finn was jailed in 2014 for raping his schoolteacher John Paul McQueen and attempting to rape Nancy Osborne. He reappeared as a guest in 2015 and 2017.

    The show will air Finn's return in June.

    Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first look screenings at 7pm on E4.
