Hollyoaks spoilers follow.

Hollyoaks has confirmed that Gary Lucy has returned to filming as Luke Morgan despite the character's death last year.

The character passed away last summer after falling off a cliff in Mallorca, with the character battling frontotemporal dementia at the time.

However, the actor will be back in upcoming episodes, and Digital Spy understands that he will not be back from the dead but will appear in some other form, such as a vision or dream.

Speaking last year to Digital Spy about saying goodbye to Hollyoaks, Gary said: "Once the dust settled, [I felt] pretty good really.

"Because obviously now I'm able to be down to see my kids, and not have that phone call on any given day where they say, 'Right, something's changed. We need you in', and just have the extended time with my family."

"Through lockdown, I think everyone kind of reevaluated a lot of things, and thought, 'What's everything about, really?' I have worked away a lot for a period of about six years," he continued.

"And to have the luxury now of being able to pop up to school and pick them up and take them for a pizza or whatever – it's just lovely, and on that side, it's great.

"As far as the immediate end to the character and my time in Hollyoaks – it was obviously very emotional, because I started there in 1998. I was 17 at the time. I was a young boy, really, and I've grown up with a lot of these people both in front and behind the camera."

Hollyoaks streams first online via Channel 4, with new episodes dropping each weekday morning. The show airs Mondays to Fridays at 6.30pm on Channel 4, and at 7pm on E4.

Selected omnibus episodes are available via Prime Video.
