A future Hollyoaks storyline will see an alien land on Earth and befriend one of the soap's characters.

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”. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
