Glamorous young cast, thrilling storylines, contemporary issues
Hollyoaks succeeds as a sexy, sassy and young-hearted show, while remaining committed to the social issues that affect its target market. For this reason Hollyoaks is able to communicate directly with its viewers on the issues that matter to them.
With storylines ranging from teen pregnancy to dating disasters Hollyoaks embraces the entire spectrum of teen issues balancing the dramatic with the light-hearted to create a show that is both informative and highly entertaining. Proving it’s not just a show for kids, Hollyoaks has tackled other serious issues including male rape, which aired in a late night episode - ‘Breaking Boundaries’.
This proved to be one of the shows most critically acclaimed storylines and attracted an entirely new audience, an audience that the show has retained ever since. The consistent appeal to its audience and loyalty Hollyoaks has commanded over the past ten years is testament to the shows success.
