Celebrity Big Brother and ex-EastEnders star Gillian Taylforth was recently confirmed to be joining the teen soap, and will play the male-dominated family's matriarch Sandy.
"I'm very excited about this family," Kirkwood said before quipping: "Think a male version of the McQueens!"
He added: "With five brothers there will be something for everyone and they'll be delivering plenty of drama, heartbreak and fun to the show. No doubt they will set a few pulses racing as they're pretty hot!"
Meanwhile, former Kathy Beale actress Taylforth commented yesterday: "I am really looking forward to joining Hollyoaks, which is going from strength to strength under Bryan Kirkwood at the moment.
"My real family are excited to move up to Liverpool - a fantastic city - and I'm eager to meet my new family, five hunky Hollyoaks sons who I'm sure will all be saints!"
Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first look screenings at 7pm on E4.
