Hollyoaks star Jeff Rawle has explained that the soap's team are keen to keep educating viewers about stranger danger on the internet.

The actor's sinister character Silas Blissett murdered student India Longford last Christmas after making contact with her online and arranging a meeting.

Silas returns to his old tricks in next week's episodes of the Channel 4 show when he starts using the same methods on newcomer Jenny, played by Daisy Turner.

Speaking to Inside Soap, Rawle commented: "It's an ongoing message we're trying to put out that the internet can be a dangerous place. Silas could be grooming up to 200 girls, waiting for just one to let down their guard - and that's where Jenny comes in."

As previously revealed, Jenny is hoping to con Silas but her scheming goes horribly wrong when she discovers his dangerous intentions as they have a picnic in the woods, leaving her in serious danger from which she may not escape.

Speaking of Jenny's ill-fated plan, Rawle added: "She'd have to be very audacious to outsmart someone who has been a killer for quite some time now. Silas is beginning to believe that he's invincible, but eventually he'll have to be brought to justice. The big question is: when?"

As well as killing India, Silas has previously come close to bumping off Nancy Hayton, Texas Longford and Lynsey Nolan.
