Dennis has been at the centre of the show's comedy storylines since joining the village two and a half years ago, with many of his early plots revolving around his crush on Leanne Holiday (Jessica Forrest).

The funnyman also featured in a more serious plotline late last year as Leanne tragically died just weeks after they finally got together.

Tracini has already confirmed his first post-Hollyoaks project as he has signed up for the role of Buttons in a Christmas production of Cinderella at the Wolverhampton Grand theatre.
