Cage fighter Michael Bisping has revealed that Hollyoaks Later fans can expect "powerful" scenes when his guest appearance in the show airs this month.

Earlier this year, the Ultimate Fighting Championship star filmed a guest stint in the late-night soap spinoff, which returns to screens on October 25.

The 31-year-old - who decided to branch out into acting last year - will be seen in the role of an underworld gangster named Nathan, a sinister figure who causes trouble for two Hollyoaks residents.

Speaking to Sky Sports about his soap project, Bisping commented: "Some people will laugh at it, but the storyline is fantastic and I'm proud to be a part of it. I can't say too much about the plot, but it comes on our screens on October 25.

"I play a bit of a bad guy in it and get involved in a spot of kidnapping and whatnot. It's pretty powerful stuff in places and I'm sure people will get a kick out of it. I really enjoyed doing it and I'm pleased I took the opportunity when it came my way."

He added: "I seemed to have a natural flair for acting and it's something I enjoy. There are a couple of other projects in the pipeline now and I'm interested in doing more."

Bisping has also appeared in action movie Beatdown, which was released earlier this year. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
