←1999 2000 2001→

2000 was Hollyoaks's sixth year of production. This year, Hollyoaks won it's first award - best newcomer (Gary Lucy as Luke Morgan). Hollyoaks also became the first soap opera to cover male rape, which saw Mark Gibbs rape Luke Morgan in March 2000 (the storyline was originally intended for Kurt Benson, in 1998/1999 but actor Jeremy Edwards turned down the storyline). Producers spoke to counsellors, police and real life rape victims before writing the storyline.

Hollyoaks also became the first to have a character crossover from another soap - Matt Musgrove from Brookside first appeared in Hollyoaks in February 2000. The show also aired it's first late night special, Hollyoaks: Breaking Boundaries in March 2000. In December 2000, Channel 4 aired Hollyoaks: Boys Do Barca, formerly referred to as "Hollyoaks: The Movie".
