Hollyoaks' Seth Costello gets in bloody trouble at his brother Riley's stag party, it has been revealed. The new episode of Hollyoaks Later, which screens next month, sees Mercedes McQueen and her girlfriends jet off to Ibiza for her hen party, while Riley Costello goes on an outdoor activities retreat with the lads. But his younger brother Seth, played by Miles Higson, gets into trouble with a prostitute, leading to horrific consequences. In a new preview picture, Seth is shown with his hands, body and face covered in blood, surrounded by the rest of the cast of the late night E4 spin-off of the Channel 4 soap. But all may not be as it seems as Hollyoaks' serial killer Silas Blissett has been tipped to feature in Hollyoaks Later. The preview picture also shows Aston Kelly who will play newcomer Animal in the show, PJ Brennan, who plays Doug, Hollie-Jay Bowes, who is returning as Michaela McQueen and Rachel Shenton as Mitzeee, who is set to gatecrash the stag party. On the left of Seth is bride-to-be Mercedes, played by Jennifer Metcalfe, Kimberly Walsh's sister Amy Walsh, who is joining the show as McQueen cousin Jennifique, stag Riley, played by Rob Norbury, and bad boy Warren, played by Jamie Lomas. Hollyoaks Later will run on E4 for five nights at 10pm from Monday, September 5 to Friday, September 9.
