Pete's sudden appearance doesn't go down well with his 'old friend' Brendan Brady, and you can find out more about that in the main interview.
Alternatively, read on for some bonus snippets from Peter:
You've already built up quite a few Twitter followers who are excited about seeing Pete on screen...
"Yeah, it's crazy! I started filming just before Christmas and Craig Vye, who plays Ethan, told me to start up a Twitter account before coming on screen as I'd get a few followers, so I set one up and Craig tweeted about me. It's gone from there and already there seems to be a lot of people who are excited about Pete because of Brendan's character and his shady past. I'm excited myself - I know what happens and I can't wait to see it. There's so much that the writers can do with this and it's nice that the fans are looking forward to seeing Pete. Hopefully I can do the character justice."
As the Hollyoaks High headmaster, are you enjoying having scenes with the younger characters as well as the older ones?
"Yeah, although the younger characters aren't really that young, to be honest! I think Stephanie Davis, Jonny Clarke and Anna Shaffer are all 18 and 19, and I'm only 26! Me playing a headteacher is great - there's going to be a lot of my old teachers at home who'll be shocked to see it! Not many teachers back home would have thought that I'd be a headteacher, whether it's on Hollyoaks or real life! (laughs) So it's great fun as obviously there's not many headteachers around at 26. That's the thing with Hollyoaks - they're always breaking boundaries, trying new things and they're not scared of doing things that other shows wouldn't. I think Pete is slightly older than me, though - I think him and Brendan are around the same age."
"I had a few scenes before Christmas which was nice because it broke me in, and then I moved over full-time in January. But my first scenes were with Jamie Lomas and with Emmett and it was absolutely fantastic to get thrown in with the bad boys straight away. Then my first three weeks were just crazy - I was working 12-hour days, five days a week, and then I was getting back home to learn my lines and only getting five or six hours' sleep per night! It's calmed down a wee bit now, though."
Apparently Pete also has some scenes coming up with Amy Barnes?
"He does - Pete arrives in the village and he bumps into Amy and Ste. It turns out that Amy is trying to get a job at the school as a teaching temp, but she doesn't realise that Pete is the headteacher. So they have a wee bit of a conversation and Amy fills him in that she's a young mum and her education suffered a bit because of that. Then Pete lets her know that he's the headteacher and it'll be him deciding whether she gets the job, and Amy's face drops! But she ends up getting the job and Pete and Amy have some good scenes together after that."
Have you had a warm welcome from the cast?
"Definitely. I didn't know what to expect - I'd only done Cast Offs before, which was six weeks, and I also did one episode of Doctors, which was two days. So this is my first full-time acting job. Straight away, everyone was just so friendly. We do have a big cast here - there's about 70 of us, but we are just like one big family. The atmosphere is just unbelievable and it's an amazing place to work. Everyone is so nice, so helpful and I honestly can't praise my fellow cast members enough. I'm pinching myself - it's Hollyoaks, everyone's so nice and I'm living in Liverpool - it's perfect! Honestly, I just couldn't imagine myself working anywhere else now - it's a dream come true and it's even better than what I thought it was going to be."
