Hollyoaks are said to be thrilled with Adam’s casting, calling him the new Danny Mac.

Danny left the show two years ago and has since had huge success on Strictly Come Dancing. But bosses at Oaks have never filled the hunk hole he left behind.

Speaking to the Daily Star an insider said: “Danny was soap’s sexiest ever male and finished runner-up on one of TV’s biggest entertainment shows.

“It was always going to be hard to replace someone like him and it’s taken nearly two years but everyone reckons they’ve found something special in Adam.

“He’s already been causing quite a few hearts to flutter at the Lime Pictures studios where Hollyoaks is filmed.

“And even though he’s following in the footsteps of Danny Mac, which is pretty huge, he’s taking it all in his stride.”
