Kevin the Alien will arrive from Aecyron Proxima Centauri – a red dwarf star in the constellation of Centauri, reports the Daily Star Sunday.
Viewers of the Chester-based soap, which recorded it's lowest ever viewing figures on Friday, will see sci-fi geek Elliot Bevan (Garnon Davies) attempt to convince friends and family that Kevin is a real alien.
"Everyone knows Hollyoaks can get away with different storylines. But having an alien land in the village is just out of this world," an insider told the paper. “The soap’s bosses have to convince viewers that they’re actually watching an alien walking around the village."
“Some of the cast actually burst out laughing when they were told about Kevin. But they have already started filming the storyline so it’s going to happen."
The insider added that boss Paul Marquess is "certain it will be a success”.
