Hollyoaks star James Fletcher is leaving the soap after just six months, it has been revealed.

The actor joined the Channel 4 show in January this year as Trevor Royle’s rebellious son Dylan Jenkins.

This week viewers saw Dylan injured in a hit and run by Zack Loveday (Duayne Boachie) and it is yet to be seen if he will survive.

James posted a picture of Dylan’s body online with the caption “Ouch!”

But Hollyoaks bosses reportedly have plenty more drama lined up for his character before he bows out later this year.
