Hollyoaks hit by coronavirus outbreak
The Channel 4 soap was hit by a coronavirus outbreak earlier this week.
Actor Callum Kerr tested positive and revealed he had only been at work or food shops.
He posted on Instagram: “Caught the virus despite only visiting work and food stores.
“Tested positive Tuesday and again since to confirm. That’s life. See ya in another eight days world. #staysafe.”
He later insisted he was okay and that he only had mild symptoms.
However, a spokesman for the soap told The Sun that its safety protocols had worked and filming would continue.
They said: “The Hollyoaks production team are working tirelessly to ensure protocols are followed to ensure the safety of cast and crew, which is paramount.
“Filming continues with robust protocols in place in line with Government guidelines.”
Nikki also praised the soap’s handling of the pandemic on Instagram.
She says Channel 4 bosses have been great to the cast during the pandemic.
She said: “At Hollyoaks they email us all the time, reminding us they’re there and checking in on us.
“That’s hugely helpful.”
