2008 was Hollyoaks's fourteenth year of production.

Overview[]

Bryan Kirkwood remained in the producer role, as did Carolyn Reynolds and Tony Wood in their executive producer roles, for third year. 2008 saw the transmission of the first spin-off commissioned under Kirkwood's tenure, Hollyoaks Later - a five-episode spin-off linked to the main series. This would continue annually until 2013. In its week of transmission, all Hollyoaks and Hollyoaks Later episodes were the top 10 most viewed on E4.

Long-running characters Jake Dean, Max Cunningham, O.B. and John Paul McQueen departed from the soap in May, July and October 2008 as actors Kevin Sacre, Matt Littler, Darren Jeffries and James Sutton decided to depart from the programme. Roxanne McKee decided to take a break from the programme and character Louise Summers was supposedly killed off in December 2008. Return scenes were filmed for McKee's impending return in March 2009, but McKee decided against returning to the programme.

Meanwhile, Stephanie Waring reprised her role as Cindy Cunningham for a permanent stint from June 2008, Sarah Jayne Dunn returned as Mandy Richardson for six months, whilst Guy Burnet reprised his role as Craig Dean for a McDean sunset ending, departing for good in Hollyoaks Later.

2008 was mostly dominated by the Niall Rafferty storyline, who sought revenge on Myra McQueen for abandoning him as a baby. The main climax to the storyline which saw Niall detonate bombs in a church reached 2,200,000 viewers. Niall was killed off in Hollyoaks Later.
