Hollyoaks is gearing up for what will likely be the most extraordinary event you’ll see in soapland this year, as the show’s long-awaited stunt week arrives.

The Channel 4 soap is well and truly pulling out all the stops for the highly-anticipated extravaganza, and we’ve got a first look preview clip of what’s to come.

The above video, taken from Tuesday’s (September 27) first look E4 offering of the serial drama, sees the residents of the eponymous village excited as carnival-mania kicks off.

Diane Hutchinson (Alex Fletcher) is perfectly cast as the event’s ring master, as she instructs all the passers-by to come along and enjoy the show.

But amid all of the happiness from the carnival-goers, a sinister presence looms, as Silas Blissett (Jeff Rawle) is back in town, determined to seek revenge on the McQueens and capture grandson Bobby Costello (Jayden Fox).

With Mercedes (Jennifer Metcalfe) having been taken prisoner by Silas, Prince (Malique Thompson-Dwyer) and Theresa (Jorgie Porter) search high and low for their missing relative, unaware of the danger that lurks nearby.

Silas, you see, has planted an explosive device under the escape room, determined to destroy the whole village in his quest to get his hands on Bobby!

It has been confirmed that one villager will die amid his reign of terror, but the identity of the unfortunate resident remains to be seen.

Theresa and Goldie (Chelsee Healey), however, will be caught in the firing line, as the two find themselves trapped in the escape room, and will be forced to choose who dies!

But what will transpire?
