Hollyoaks star Jeff Rawle has promised that there is a big climax on the way for his character Silas Blissett's dark storyline.

Silas has been at the centre of terror in the village since Christmas, when he murdered innocent student India Longford. Since then, he has also killed Doug Carter's con artist girlfriend Rebecca Massey.

While Silas's antics have been put on the backburner in recent weeks, the plot is expected to pick up the pace across August and beyond.

Asked whether the story's conclusion is on the way, Rawle told This Morning today: "It is! We've been waiting a long time to see what's going to happen with Silas and over the next three months we've got some cracking storylines which end in an awful climax, which I can't say anything about."

Rawle confirmed that Silas will soon start terrorising nurse Lynsey Nolan (Karen Hassan), who is currently the only person in the village who suspects he is responsible for the murders.

The actor explained: "He's now intent on discrediting her, because she knows that I'm the killer - she's heard my voice and believes she's right. It's my job to undermine her.

"My job over the next few weeks, it's like a war of attrition - I'm going to wear her down and send her mad. I break into her flat and move things around in the middle of the night, that kind of thing."

Rawle also predicted that there will be devastating consequences for the Costello family when they discover the true colours of their seemingly-affable relative.

"That family is going to be ripped asunder I think, when they find out that he's actually the killer in their midst," he said.

PJ Brennan, who plays Doug, recently told Digital Spy that he would like "a little bit of a Scooby Gang" to come together and solve the murders.
