    Hollyoaks is going to introduce viewers to Sami Maalik's half-brother next week.

    Although he's not technically a Maalik, Azim will be surprising the family after Sami (Rishi Nair) announces his engagement to Sinead O'Connor (Stephanie Davis).

    Former Silent Witness star Nav Sidhu has been cast as Azim, who shares a mother but not the same father with Sami. He's an event planner who arrives promising to throw his half-brother an engagement party.

    Sidhu chatted with Yaz actress Haiesha Mistry about the character, promising that he'll be the life of the party when he arrives in the village.

    "He's kind, he's energetic, he's a fixer, he's smart and he is fun," the actor teased.

    The Maaliks first referenced Azim last month when he called to wish the family a happy Eid, before their celebration was broken up by Ste's far-right group.

    Azim's arrival will coincide with a huge conflict between the Maaliks and the far-right gang, which is set to finally open Ste's eyes to his comrades' destructive motives.

    "Coming out of the summer we have a huge week in mid-September, by which time Jonny and Stuart have a radicalised Ste where they want him and start to explain they have bigger plans," producer Bryan Kirkwood recently promised.

    "That's when the scales finally fall from Ste's eyes as he realises he's in the company of monsters. It's a week that changes the lives of the Maaliks and Ste forever, and alters the course of the story."
