Holly will land herself a job in Rick's bar after experiencing a turbulent few weeks, which kick off on Monday (April 21) when she and Jason are horrified to find a dead body in the river next to The Dog in The Pond.

Further on down the line, Rick will come into the village itself - and there could be a surprise in store as a few people are shocked to see him.

Further storyline details are being kept under wraps for now, so viewers will have to wait and see which characters will be affected by Rick's arrival.

Gardener's previous acting credits include roles in Mr Selfridge, Fast & Furious 6 and Law & Order: UK.

Rick's first scenes will air in the week commencing Monday, May 12.

Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first look screenings at 7pm on E4.
