Made In Chelsea favourite lands Hollyoaks role

Everyone's favourite posho could be making the move from Chelsea to Chester after bagging soap role

Jamie Laing is swapping Chelsea for Chester, to make his acting debut in Hollyoaks!

Well, strictly speaking, the Made In Chelsea toff is actually just going to be an extra in the background of one scene for the Channel 4 soap.

But that’s not going to stop us getting excited at the idea of the blonde bombshell nipping into the Dog for a cocktail or two.

Posho Jamie was spotted on the Hollyoaks set back in March, fuelling rumours he could have landed a role in the soap. And he’s now confirmed that he has indeed filmed a special cameo – as a doctor!

Personally we wouldn’t trust the reality star to give us a physical, but it looks like he scrubs up well in his medical outfit, as he stands in the back of shot during a scene involving characters Marnie and James Nightingale.

The soap bosses have released a video which shows Jamie taking a tour of the set, filming his brief ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ appearance and being given an acting masterclass from star Sophie Porley, who plays Ellie Nightingale.

“I am actually going to be in Hollyoaks in the background!” Jamie confirmed.

“I’m excited and nervous, all the emotions in one right now.”

And while he might have struggled with the more technical side of things (not knowing what a stethoscope was called and nearly bursting his own eardrums with it), Jamie thinks he might have tapped into his natural acting prowess.

“I learned that I can act!” he said. “Trust me, I’m a doctor!”
