Scanlan) and Eileen Brady (Rachel Doherty).[63] Of his son's casting, Keith Duffy said "They were looking for an Irish guy in Hollyoaks. They rang Duffy up, he went to London, did an audition, did a screen test, they called him back and they gave him the job." Duffy said that he did not expect to secure the role because it was a real audition and he hadn't got much acting experience.[64] He was initially signed to appear in a small number of episodes.[62]

Duffy described Declan as "an ordinary lad form Dublin, a school kid". Declan is visiting his father for a couple of weeks, Duffy said the visit is "all about him getting to know his dad" because "he doesn't know his dad very well at all". Declan is happy to see his father, he has always wanted "to chill out with him" but it is "pretty awkward" because they know so little about each other. The visit is also about whether or not Brendan will inform his son about his sexuality.[65] Duffy also revealed that he was happy to be working with Scanlan and loved "every minute" of his time filming.[64]

After Duffy departed on-screen, Bronagh Waugh who plays Declan's aunt, Cheryl Brady said that she was keen for Duffy to reprise his role because he was popular with female viewers.[66] It was later announced that Duffy would be returning to filming for another stint. Keith Duffy said that Hollyoaks were happy with his son's performance.

However, Keith felt that Duffy was not ready to leave school and work full time with adults. Keith did grant him permission to film during school holidays and revealed that Duffy was filming in Liverpool for ten days.[67]

Ash Kane, played by Holly Weston, debuted on-screen on 28 September 2011. The character was introduced as one of five new students who arrive to study at Hollyoaks Community College. Ash was the last new student to be cast into the series. Weston said the audition and screen test was very "last minute". After her final screen test, Weston went on holiday and was informed that she had secured the role and was required to return to Liverpool to begin filming. Weston said she and the other new cast members were initially signed to a six month contract, which was a "trial period".[71] Entertainment website Digital Spy first announced the character of Ash on 5 September 2011.[72] The Hollyoaks press office said that the collective are "possibly the coolest set of students ever to land in the Chester village." They "shake things up" and and embark on a journey through "life's hardest lessons". Their first week on the programme has been touted the "most fun and cringe-worthy Freshers' weeks of all time".[73]

She’s a really cool character. She’s really fun to play because she doesn’t have any high heels, doesn’t care what she looks like – I get to wear messy makeup all the time, which is cool. She’s a bit of a rock chick, makes her different from some of the other characters.

Holly Weston on Ash.[74]

She was initially described as a "wild party girl" and a "rock chick and rebel".[73] E4.com described Ash stating that when she is around, "things get wild". You will never find Ash opting for a night indoors unless there is "alcohol, heavy metal and ill advised flashing" involved. Though Ash feels guilty over her antics the next morning, she convinces herself that it is part of the university student lifestyle. Ash has a brother, Callum Kane (Laurie Duncan) who she attempts to play the "responsible older sister" for.[75]

Weston has described Ash as "a bit of a child. Gets drunk a lot, she’s always hungover! She just wants to have a good time really." However, she opined that ash actually has more depth to her persona.[74] While she is attempting to have a good time, she also studies psychology, so she is "sussing everyone out". Weston said that Ash starts to have a "little play with people" because she knows what "they're thinking before they do". However at first, viewers do not realise she studies the subject because of the way she acts. Ash embarrasses herself during her first week because she drinks to much alcohol, so she "regrets it" afterwards, Weston added that real life university freshers can identify with the way she feels.[74] Weston later gave advice to the National Union of Students, stating that new freshers should surrond themselves with friends if they are going to go out drinking. She noted that Ash does not get into "unsafe situations because she surrounds herself with her new found friends."[76]

Ash imediately strikes up a friendship with Will Savage (James Atherton), however her is in a relationship with Theresa McQueen (Jorgie Porter). Theresa becomes jealous of Will's new formed friendships, Porter said that Theresa "notices his growing bond with Ash" and she soon realises "she is not his number one priority anymore" when he opts to go partying with Ash and the freshers over meeting Theresa.[77] Weston said that she read initial viewer reactions to Ash via internet forums. She said she felt worried because Ash was criticised, as viewers thought she was going to steal Will away from Theresa. She also cringed when she watched her first scenes with Will, because she was trying to "put on a sexy voice" on.[71]

Ash arrives during Freshers Week at the HCC, where she meets Will. They make friends and she accompanies him back to his new student accomodation. She meets his room mates Annalise Appleton (Tamaryn Payne), Rob Edwards (David Atkin), Barney Harper-McBride (Tom Scurr) and Scott Sabeka (Calvin Denba).

She starts spending time with Will, which makes his girlfriend Theresa jealous. She also clashes with Annalise over her behaviour and rapport with Rob.

Barney Harper-McBride, played by Tom Scurr, debuted on-screen on 28 September 2011. The character was introduced as one of five new students who arrive to study at Hollyoaks Community College. Barney was the fourth new student to be cast into the serial. Scurr said the audition process was "very quick" and "good fun". He then had a screen test in London, infront of a casting director named Rick. Four days later, Scurr received a call confirming that he had secured the role, he then travelled to Liverpool to begin filming.[71] Scurr told the National Union of Students, that he could relate to real life freshers because he "was thrown in at the deep end" at Hollyoaks and just had to make friends and get on with the experience.[76] Entertainment website Digital Spy first announced the character of Barney on 5 September 2011.[72] The Hollyoaks press office said that the students are "possibly the coolest set" to ever feature in the serial because they "shake things up" and face "life's hardest lessons". Their fresher's week branded the "most fun and cringe-worthy" one ever.[73]

He’s not offensive, he’s not out there going “oh, I have seventeen ponies at home”, he’s never showing off. In his old life he never really fitted in anywhere, he was always on the outskirts of circles, he never had anywhere to belong. Now he’s here in Hollyoaks all of a sudden he’s got people who want to involve him in things: drink, going to clubs etc.

Tom Scurr on Barney.[78]

Barney was initially described as an "aristocrat - who is well out of his comfort zone at Hollyoaks Community College".[73] E4.com have described him as finding himself "slumming it" in Hollyoaks after swapping it for his usual life of luxary.[79] They added he would "find student life a real eye-opener" and struggle to do his own washing. Barney's "expensive tastes and chivalrous ways" are said to help him when it comes to socialising with serial's female characters.[79]

While Scurr said that Barney is the serial's "token posh boy" who enjoys teaching others about expensive wine.[71] He also said that Barney is from a "completely different walk of life" compared to the other students. He had been enjoying "the finer things in life" but did not get the grades needed to get into "Oxbridge". Scurr sees his presence at HCC as a chance to teach Barney that life is not all "black tie and crumpets".[78] He is a "rabbit in the headlights" when he first arrives but he "quickly bonds" with his fellow students and they decide to look after him. They often joke about Barney's "naivety" but they are open about it with him. Scurr said their relationship with Barney is "odd" but at the same time it is "very nice". Scurr said that he loved playing Barney because of his simplistic discoveries such as learning to use a tin opener. Over Barney is a "sweet guy" and Scurr hoped that viewers would warm to Barney's persona.[78]

Barney arrives during Freshers Week at the HCC, where Leanne Holiday (Jessica Forrest) takes him to his student accomodation. There he meets his room mates Annalise Appleton (Tamaryn Payne), Will Savage (James Atherton), Rob Edwards (David Atkin) and Scott Sabeka (Calvin Denba). Barney teaches the other students about his posh wine, he goes out on a night out with the other students and gets drunk. The next morning he wakes up in bed with Jade (Caroline Read) and the rest of the boys are shocked that Barney is the one that managed to pull a female. He later attempts to learn how to use a washing machine and adjusts to life living as a student.

Rob Edwards, played by David Atkins, debuted on-screen on 28 September 2011. The character was introduced as one of five new students who arrive to study at Hollyoaks Community College. Entertainment website Digital Spy first announced the character of Rob on 5 September 2011.[72] A Hollyoaks spokesperson said that the students are "possibly the coolest set" to ever feature in the serial because they "shake things up" and face "life's hardest lessons". Their fresher's week branded the "most fun and cringe-worthy" one ever.[73]

Rob was initially billed as a "sporty jock".[73] While E4.com have described him as having three passions being his girlfriend Annalise Appleton (Tamaryn Payne), "sport and partying". Rob is "sociable", likes "the blokey camaraderie of team sports" and "drunken banter". Through his social activities Rob has gained a large amount of "drinking buddies" and gained a "party boy reputation", though Annalise does not approve. Rob sees university as a chance to carry on partying.[80]

Atkins has said that Rob is "a bit of a jock" who loves going out with "the lads" to talk about rugby. Rob definitely wants to go "on a three year bender" when he arrives at HCC. Rob's girlfriend, Annalise, often organises Rob's life. Atkins said that she is "quite controlling" and the only reason Rob is at univeristy.[81] Rob does have a sensitive side when it comes to Annalise because "as soon as he knows he's done wrong he tries to make up for it." Atkins said their is potential to see trouble between the couple because "it is like any relationship". Rob and Annalise are at university in a "coming-of-age" situation. While their relationship is "good", it becomes "quite restricting" for Rob. Atkins said they need to give each other more space, but the fact they live in the same halls "makes it difficult". Atkins opined that their relationship is a realistic portrayal of those in relationships while studying at university. He also added that the situations that Rob gets into should be easy to relate to by any first year student.[81] Atkins later gave advice to the National Union of Students, he said that Rob "imediately signed up for the rugby team and spend most of his time in the SU bar." Atkins added that Rob's technique is a great way for any student to "involved with the University spirit".[76]

In November 2011, it was announced that Rob would be involved in a storyline in which he is run over by Ethan Scott (Craig Vye), who is using his mobile phone while driving.[82] The storyline was to highlight the danger of texting while driving, making light of the fact that doing so increases the risk of a car accident by "23 times". Hollyoaks partnered with the independent road safety charity Brake for the storyline, which helped launch "Road Safety Week". The charity's director, Julie Townsend, said that "too many young lives are lost and ruined through road crashes". They added that it was important for television programmes such as Hollyoaks to highlight "appalling consequences of crashes".[82] While the Hollyoaks press office said "Ethan realises the enormity of his actions. He shouldn’t have been texting while driving and he knows he could very well lose his job."[83] On-screen the storyline plays out when Ethan is texting Theresa McQueen (Jorgie Porter) and Liberty Savage (Abi Phillips) while driving. Ethan is not keep an eye on the road and Rob steps out and Ethan accidentally run him over. The serial remained secretive about whether or not Rob survives the accident.[82]

Rob arrives at HCC with Annalise and meets his flat mates Will Savage (James Atherton), Scott Sabeka (Calvin Denba) and Barney Harper-McBride (Tom Scurr). Rob dares Ash Kane (Holly Weston) to trip off infront of the crowd in the SU Bar, which annoys Annalise. Rob and Will join the university rugby team and he repeatidly goes out drinking with his new friends. He forgets to keep his plans with Annalise and she tires of his partying. They argue and she forces him to sleep on the sofa, they later make up.

Daytona Lights are a real world five piece indie band that are introduced to Hollyoaks, with all members playing partially fictional versions of themselves.[84] The characters were billed as "cool characters who provide an authentic youth story and can rock out the SU Bar."[85]

The band's arrival was announced in September 2011. The band consists of lead singer Danny Lawrence and fellow members Laurence Saywood, Louis Souyaye, Matt Gill, Sam Fordham. Lawrence said his band's inclusion was a "great opportunity" for his band to promote their music out to a "mass audience" because "that's what every musician wants". He also said his bandmates were enjoying the lifestyle Hollyoaks had to offer. Three of the band's members met while studying at a drama school in Hackney.[84]

Prior to their involvement with the serial, Daytona Lights were signed to a Hubris Records, a small record label which is headed by Steve Levine. Levine wanted to find a platform to promote the band on. British actor Stephen Fry introduced Levine to the Audio Network, a music library which offers commercial television low price and license free music. At the same time one of Hollyoaks' producers, Tony Wood was using the music from the library as he wanted the serial to gain a more "cool and indie" image. When Wood visited the band, he and Levine decided to work on joint venture to include the band in Hollyoaks for a promotional push on both parts.[85] Wood also wanted to bring a real band into the serial as opposed to a fictional one.[86]

Wood said their inclusion shows another example of Hollyoaks having more layers than just storyline. As the serial features popular culture and has a specific target audience, Wood felt that Daytona Lights are characters that are "aspirational, fun and who they could relate to."[85] The band will be "softly" introduced during October and a slow build in storylines will progress.[85] The members will debut onscreen separately and eventually form a band, Levine explained that "the concept is as you would have in real life where you come across a real band." Daytona Lights will be seen rehearsing and perform sound checks, while the Hollyoaks students drink in the SU Bar.[86] Over their duration, the bands music will be made available for download and some tracks given to viewers for free.[85] Their story arc is planned to culminate during a "big" storyline airing during a New Years Eve episode. While off-screen Daytona Lights will release their first studio album to coincide with the episode.[86][85]

Laurence and Louis arrive in the village with Kelly (Danielle Malone), while she meets up with Duncan Button (Dean Aspen). Duncan thinks that Kelly is attracted to Laurence and Louis, unaware they are trying to pair Kelly off with Duncan. Danny and Sam arrive as friends of Ash Kane (Holly Weston) and perform at the S.U. Bar, while Matt turns up working as a bouncer at the venue.
