2000 was Hollyoaks's sixth year of production. This year, Hollyoaks won its first award - best newcomer (Gary Lucy as Luke Morgan).

Overview[]

2000 marked a darker year of Hollyoaks in terms of storylines, seeing viewing figures soar to nearly 5,000,000 as Hollyoaks transmitted the first ever male rape storyline in a British soap opera, with Luke Morgan's rape at the hands of Mark Gibbs during the show's first ever late night special. The storyline gathered strong media attention, both positive and negative.

2000 also saw the debut of Matt Musgrove, a character that had appeared in Brookside from 1998 to 2000 - marking the first ever instance of a character being a regular in two separate British soap operas. Other stories included Adam Morgan being falsely accused of sexually harrassing his teacher, Sol Patrick living on the streets and falling for prostitute Jess Holt, Jill Osborne dying from an inoperable brain tumour, Cindy Cunningham taking her daughter and fleeing from social services, and the departure of central characters Lucy Benson and Carol Groves.

Hollyoaks held its first ever open auditions, documented in Hollyoaks: Casting Special in October 2000. The auditions saw the castings of Marcus Patric as Ben Davies and Andrew Somerville as Theo Sankofa in the London auditions, Elize du Toit as Izzy Cornwell in the Edinburgh auditions, and Lesley Johnston as Laura Burns in the Belfast auditions.
