Hollyoaks hunk appearing at Christmas lights switch-on
HOLLYOAKS hunk Andrew Moss is appearing at Grimsby's Christmas lights switch-on tonight.
The actor played Reece in the popular teen soap, and has only just left; his shock exit was screened to devastated fans last week.
Andrew is stepping in for Kim Woodburn, who will be appearing in the Grimsby Auditorium panto Cinderella this year but is too poorly to attend the Go To Town This Christmas launch this afternoon.
He will be joined by Prince Charming, Cinderella and an Ugly Sister from Cinderella.
Father's Day will soon be upon us, so Don't Forget....
